Epic! And Sesame Workshop partner for digital book series

Sesame Workshop is set to launch a new line of digital books thanks to a new deal with Epic!

The collection will boast Sesame Street audio-enabled “read-to-me” books and a range of learning-based short-form content.

“We’re thrilled to add this treasure trove of wonderful Sesame Streetbooks, songs and videos to our award–winning library for children,” said Kevin Donahue, co-founder of Epic!

“Developing a love of reading and learning in children while keeping it fun and engaging has always been our focus. And now we have Elmo, Grover and the rest of Sesame Street to help us do it.”

12 e-books and 33 short videos in total will join Epic!, and will give fans access to titles including The ABCs of Cookies, Elmo Visits the Dentist and Monsters in the Bathroom, as well as videos including Super Grover 2.0, People in Your Neighborhood and Elmo’s Got the Moves.

Jennifer A. Perry, VP and publisher for North America media products at Sesame Workshop, added: “Sesame Workshop’s recipe for success lies in combining our research-driven curriculum with the sophisticated use of media and the latest technology.

“We’re excited to make Sesame Street content available to an audience as passionate about education and reading books as Epic! subscribers are.”
