SESAME STREET: ELMO’S FAVORITE STORIES

BURBANK, CA (April 28, 2016) – It’s story time for everyone’s favorite furry friends on Sesame Street as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Sesame Workshop, the non-profit, educational organization whose mission is to help kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder, release Sesame Street: Elmo’s Favorite Stories on DVD and digital July 5, 2016. This entertaining DVD features stories that will engage your family’s imagination all summer long! Sesame Street: Elmo’s Favorite Stories will be priced to own for $14.97 SRP.
Sesame Street: Elmo’s Favorite Stories is a compilation of engaging and educational stories for preschool children. In one story, a disagreement arises between Big Bird and Elmo as they are about to act out one of Elmo’s favorite stories, “Maria the Cowgirl.” In another story Abby recalls that green creatures are often princes in disguise! Abby soon concludes that Oscar could be a frog—he is green isn’t he?—and therefore is also an enchanted prince! She thinks that a kiss is the only way to break the spell and turn Oscar back into Prince Oscar. Children will learn early reading skills such as letter recognition, letter sounds, and story structure (beginning/middle/end) as the Sesame friends use their imaginations to make up and act out all kinds of stories.
“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is thrilled to be releasing Sesame Street: Elmo’s Favorite Stories on DVD” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “As the #1 top-of-mind preschool show with moms, we’re sure families will enjoy this latest compilation of educational and fun episodes featuring Elmo and the gang.”
Now in its 46th season, Sesame Street is the longest-running program in children’s television. The series has received more Emmy awards than any other show in television history, as well as a Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award honoring the 40th year.
