Takalani Sesame Muppets are Out and About in South Africa!

Out and AboutParents and Kiddies take note: The muppets from Takalani Sesame (the local version of Sesame Street) will be doing a nationwide visit this October and November in celebration of its 10 year partnership with SABC broadcasters. Takalani Sesame is a television series that creatively engages children and parents in developing basic school readiness in skills such as literacy, numeracy, health and hygiene.

You can purchase the Takalani Sesame-related children’s book, Out and About, at the David Krut Publishing bookstore.
