Open Sesame is an activity based course for children with songs, chants, games, lively conversations and other fun activities, featuring the lovable Sesame Street characters.
There are two main stages in five levels. The beginning stages consist of Big Bird's Yellow Book, Grover's Orange Book and Cookie Monster's Blue Book, and the intermediate stages comprise Prairie Dawn's Purple Book and Ernie and Bert's Red Book.
Supplementary stages include Oscar's Bridge to Reading Book which teaches reading and writing and can form an alternative bridge level between Big Bird's Yellow Book and Cookie Monster's Blue Book. Supplementary materials include the Open Sesame Picture Dictionary, available in both monolingual and bilingual editions. There are also Wall Charts (20 poster size laminated charts with a Teacher's Guide), and a set of 75 double-sided, full color Picture Cards.
