Preschoolers will be thoroughly entertained as Elmo and Professor Grover teach a real preschool class about the alphabet, letter names, and letter sounds in this first DVD in the Sesame Street: Preschool Is Cool series. The format is classic Sesame Street: a mix of music, puppetry, animation, and live action that translates into 50 minutes of pure fun and learning. Professor Grover has a very specific lesson plan for teaching his preschool class about the alphabet, and the preparation entails finding something that starts with every letter of the alphabet. The professor has some trouble remembering the order of the letters and finding an item for each letter, but luckily his assistant Elmo comes to the rescue. Interspersed throughout Grover and Elmo's lesson are several renditions of the alphabet song in a variety of styles, plus a handful of Sesame Street vignettes, including Telly's membership in the Letter of the Month Club, his stint as a contestant on the "Hurry Up, You're Running Out of Time Show," a letter circus, and Dr. Grover playing the role of an alphabet specialist in the hit show "A's Anatomy." The classic "African Alphabet" music video is included as a bonus feature. Developing early reading skills is all about fun when the Sesame Street gang is involved!
