  • Yes it does. It helps Preschool children who are already in attending school. They actually pay more attention, since the topic of numbers and letter are taught in their classroom. Plus, once they turn five, they want to learn to read and it helps them identify what sounds go with what letters. My five year old love to watch Sesame Street every morning. And so did my othe two boy when they were little.

  • Absolutely! My 21 month old watches Sesame Street and he already know more than half of his letters by sight (even out of order - he points them out on signs and tells me what they are) and all of his number 1-10.
