Sesame Street is now selling e-books online. To mark the introduction of the e-books there will be some free e-books on the Sesame Street web site.
Through iPublishCentral, a revolutionary e-content delivery platform from Impelsys, Sesame Street titles will be available in one or more of three formats:
- eBook – User-friendly and dynamic flip books.
- Audio eBooks – Look and listen to stories. Featuring word by word highlighting to help young readers connect visuals to word sounds. Select titles will include Sesame Street character voices.
- Interactive eBooks – Look and listen to stories, plus engage in activities to enhance reading and learning skills. Titles in this format will be available starting in January.
In spring 2010, Sesame Workshop and Impelsys will begin offering readers individual titles they can purchase or an annual subscription where they gain access to over 100 books and start their own virtual bookshelf. New titles will be added monthly.
Sesame Workshop will continue to offer children and their parents a rotating selection of five free eBooks, with one title being featured on the sesamestreet.org homepage each week.
