Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit behind Sesame Street, is launching new bilingual resources to help kids build resilience and thrive in their communities with support from UnitedHealthcare. The new resource package is available for free for parents and providers at the Sesame Street in Communities website in English and Spanish.
The package includes Roads to Resilience, a comprehensive course to help providers and caregivers implement new resilience resources, as well as three new storybooks on resilience featuring Sesame Street Muppets: Monster Dash, Looking for Special, and Bounce Back. The package also includes printed versions of Monster Moments, storybooks that celebrate milestones, and videos that offer tips for parents and caregivers.
In addition to being available online, the new resources will be distributed through UnitedHealthcare’s network of healthcare providers and Sesame Street in Communities’ partners.
Along with the resilience resource package, Sesame Workshop will also launch Comfy-Cozy Spaces later this year in an effort to provide comfort and reduce stress for kids in medical offices, social service offices, and educational settings. The spaces feature child-size furniture, bookshelves stocked with Sesame Street in Communities books and resources, and colorful Sesame Street Muppet murals on the walls.
