Sesame Street for Military Families

Spring 2013 Mobile Apps
Ages: All Ages
Developer: Sesame Workshop
Platform: iPad

With the care, professionalism, quality and authenticity that Sesame Workshop is known for, the app titled Sesame Street for Military Families delivers a well-curated compilation of resources from the bilingual outreach initiative, Military Families Near and Far. The app provides a variety of multi-media tools to help support military families with young children coping with life's challenging changes.

Icons within the self explanatory section titles of deployments, homecomings, self expression, injuries and grief indicate the content as a video, an article, an activity poster and more.

These accessible resources offer adults strategies and materials to help their families cope with challenging situations of life in the military, as well as simple tips for helping their children express their feelings in positive and productive ways.

Videos of relevant Sesame Street episodes are, as always, sensitive and designed for preschoolers. But with all the love and trust of the Sesame Workshop teams, viewers of all ages will benefit from the content, the presentation, and the thoughtful work.
