My Thoughts…

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!!

Want to win your own “Trea­sury of 50 Sto­ry­book Clas­sics:  Ani­mal Antics” DVD Set?  Scholas­tic is giv­ing away this exact set to one lucky Cool­Canucks reader! How sweet of a prize!! I know that your chil­dren will absolutely adore this won­der­ful set just as much as my house­hold does!!
