Learning can be fun with the help of Sesame Street characters in Elmo's A-to-Zoo Adventure and Cookie's Counting Carnival!

In Sesame Street: Elmo's A-to-Zoo Adventure, kids head to the zoo with Elmo, Zoe and their animal friends, as they explore games based on a variety of literacy skills, including letter identification, letter sounds and word families. Kids can also explore exciting zoo habitats including the Aquarium, Savanna, Jungle, Wetlands and the Arctic. 

In Sesame Street: Cookie's Counting Carnival, kids join Cookie Monster and Big Bird at a fun-filled carnival through gameplay steeped in math skills that include number identification, counting, shapes and pattern recognition. Kids journey through the game in the many areas of the carnival such as The Grandstand, Midway, Petting Zoo, Food Court and the Arcade.

Special gameplay helpers that simplify gameplay controls and make them more accessible for preschoolers with small hands and developing skills are included in the WiiTM and Nintendo DSTM versions of the game at no additional charge.  Also in the Wii version of the games, parents can also use a second Wii Remote to drop in and assist when needed. 

Other features include easy-to-follow audio-visual directions that preschoolers can master on their own, game difficulty that adapts to the child's level, and the "Parent's Page" where parents can review games their child has played along with relevant curriculum for each.
