In 1969, Sesame Workshop’s founders asked a single bold question. Could television —then an emerging technology—be used to educate kids? With a diverse cast, a research-based curriculum, and some instantly-iconic characters, Sesame Street sought to answer that question—and it changed children’s television forever.
The Helpsters—Cody, Heart, Scatter, and Mr. Primm—are a one-of-a-kind team of vibrant and friendly monsters who love to solve problems for the customers who visit their shop. Whether faced with a challenge like planning a party, climbing a mountain, or mastering a magic trick, the Helpsters can help figure anything out—because every solution starts with a plan. Preschoolers (ages 3-5) see the power of teamwork in action while absorbing important lessons in self-confidence, collaboration, and effective communication.
When a ghost suddenly begins haunting a neighborhood bookstore and releases fictional characters into the real world, four middle schoolers—Rueben, Chevon, Curtis and Donna—must team up to solve the mystery surrounding the ghost’s unfinished business. The friends give the specter a name—Ghostwriter—and are led on one exciting adventure after another, unlocking more of the mystery with every featured book.
