Sesame Street’s “Ready for School” DVD Giveaway!

ready-for-school-dvd-180.jpgElmo is getting ready for school in “Sesame Street’s” latest DVD, “Ready For School,” – and we are giving TEN of you the DVD for free…

The first day of school is very exciting, but it can also be scary – even for a little monster like Elmo. So his friends are there to help.

If your little one is getting ready for that big first day of school – Elmo and his friends might just be able to help reassure your child too.

Ready for School” helps kids prepare for their new experiences in school. In it, Elmo learns what to expect in a classroom, while Baby Bear talks about his first day at Storybook Community School. Friends Gabi and Miles, who are graduating from high school, share their favorite school memories with Elmo. They remember singing and dancing, showing their drawings to their class, and learning how to share. Baby Bear remembers how nervous he was on his first day at Storybook Community School, and how Mother Goose made him feel so much better.

readyforschool_blackboard.jpgI know my son Jackson is incredibly nervous about starting kindergarten. We have long talks about what school will be like and what worries him. It is great to have extra tools like this DVD to help him talk about his fears and concerns and help him him realize that everyone worries about the big day.

If you want some Sesame Street magic to help get your kids ready for school, we are giving away ten copies of the DVD. Just leave your comment here to be entered in the draw. We will draw the winners in three weeks, on August 16, 2007.

This contest is open to US and Canadian shipping addresses. (The company cannot ship to P.O. Boxes.)

Good Luck!

    We love our little Elmo and my oldest is going to school in September for the first time. Do they make a DVD for nervous moms? :0)

    This is my son’s first year of “real school” – he will be doing Kindergarten in homeschool. He is the second of three I have homeschooled – and I think this would be a fun video for him!

  3. says

    My son would love, Love, LOVE this video. He is such an elmo fan! He will be going to school really soon, I know he would love to see what school is like before he actually gets there.

  16. NeilsGirl says

    My child loves Sesame Street! Definitely gonna try to win this! If you guys like Sesame Street then you’ll probably love this show that my child and I love called Mustard Pancakes. It is very reminiscent of Mr.Rogers and teaches kids family values and life lessons in a fun and simple way. A new dvd is being released in September so you guys should look out for it!

  17. Cathy123 says

    If Elmo can get ready for school, then my little girl will feel more confident that she can do it too!! Elmo has helped us learn about the dentist, the doctor, even potty training so this is a perfect next step…will they make “Elmo Gets His Learner’s Permit” and “Elmo Goes to College” too?

  18. Betty Nations says

    My youngest grandson would love to learn with Elmo and his Sesame street friends!

  21. Lisa Garrison says

    I sent my first son off to kindergarden just a week ago. He is having a hard time adjusting because he has never been away from me. We are both adjusting. I think this will be great and If I don’t win, I will certainly buy this dvd for my youngest son of 4 months.

  22. Liz Sawyer says

    Our just turned 5-year-old son begins Kindergarten this year. AND, our almost 2-year-old daughter begins her first experience in preschool this year. Elmo is dearly loved by our children. He would do double duty introducing them BOTH to new school situations. What a thoughtful contest you have. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity to win for our kids!

  23. Sharon Rickert says

    Three generations. I was a little late for Sesame Street, but enjoyed it when I was a teenager. My son was raised on it. I want to win this for his 2 little girls.
