You may recall my review on Scholastic Treasures – Treasury of 100 Storybook Classics that I reviewed a month or so ago. This collection is much like that one but mainly has selected stories about animals!
I loved watching the DVDs from this collection that featured the story of Chrysanthemum a little mouse who loved her name until the kids at school poked fun of it. I recall reading this story when I was a young girl and am so glad to have this collection at hand to share with my princesses! If I had to pick one favorite out of this whole set, it would be Meryl Streep reading Chrysanthemum. She is absolutely perfect!! She really ‘gets’ kids, and she knows, probably from direct experience, how fragile and impressionable children can be. The set is worth it to me to hear her read that one story.
These box sets are perfect for in home or on the road and perfect to share with every member of the family. Hours of enjoyment and priceless memories will be had, all in DVD format!
I’d like to encourage everyone to check out The Scholastic Storybook Treasures website at http://www.newkideo.com/. This site is a fantastic place for parents and kids to read and share their own reviews on the dvd’s as well as enjoy activities such as downloading colouring sheets and learning more about the authors featured in this Storybook Treasures collection!
No surprise here – kids love animals! Combining Scholastics’ animal story books with the audiovisual work of their Weston Woods Studios gives kids a special treat in this 7-disc collection, Treasury of 50 Storybook Classics: Animal Antics… and More! With 50 stories focusing on the animal kingdom, kids (ages 2 – 8) will be able to read along with some real classics!
I remember a lot of these stories from my own childhood. Occassionally a production will surface that’s as old as I am. I enjoy the flasbacks to “movie day” in grade school or special viewings at my local library during summer breaks. But to my kiddies, they’ are all fresh and new to them. I have fun watching the kiddies who are enthusiastic viewers, dancing and singing along. With Scholastic, any parents can feel totally comfortable letting their children watch and learn with their excellent line of educational books and DVDS!!
