Sesame Street Launches “Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration” Initiative
Nearly 2.7 million children have an incarcerated parent, yet few resources exist to help the youngest of these children. To meet this need, Sesame Street is launching its “Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration” Initiative, which will include multimedia, bilingual (English/Spanish) materials targeting young children (ages 3-8) of incarcerated parents, their families and caregivers, and the range of other professionals who touch these children.
These FREE materials include:
- A multimedia resource kit with a Sesame Street DVD, a Guide for Parents and Caregivers, and a Children’s Storybook, available at www.sesamestreet.org/incarceration
- Sesame Street: Incarceration app for adults to use on tablets and phones, available on Google Play, the App Store and the Amazon Appstore for Android on Kindle Fire.
- Youtube.com/user/SesameStreetInCommunities featuring playlists of videos about the initiative
