Sesame Street Reading Games is a computer game produced by Creative Wonders and compatible with Windows and Macintosh. The two disc package, previously released as Sesame Street Reading Is Fun! Toddler Edition, uses loose adaptations of literature to teach basic reading and comprehension skills.

Both games are hosted by Alistair Cookie. The first is Grover's Travels, inspired by Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels. Grover travels to the land of the Twiddlebugs (paralleling Gulliver's visit to Lilliput) and later encounters Big Bird and Snuffy (standing in for the giant Brobdignagians).

The second game is The Three Grouchketeers, inspired by Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers. Grover, Zoe, and Telly are the Grouchketeers, charged by King Oscar with the task of finding his missing Royal Pig.

Both games were also released individually by Encore Software.
