Emma (almost 3) and I have been watching Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVDs from the Adventures at School and Treasury of 100 Storybook Classics 2 boxed sets ALL week and we’re enjoying them immensely! I tried to introduce her to these before but she didn’t show a lot of interest, I think she was just a little too young. But now we’re discovering new stories and characters, and she’s asking to watch many of them over and over.
I, as a mommy, am delighted. Why? Because Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVDs from NewKideo.com aren’t just cartoons – they’re animated classics from storybooks that I remember reading as a child. Stories like Corduroy, The Ugly Duckling, Ralph S. Mouse, and even fairy tales are brought to life. Even I enjoy sitting and watching them with Emma.
Another thing that makes these animated stories unique is that they’re read in their entirety. It’s like watching a book, the original illustrations coming to life on the TV. And you can add the optional read-along words at the bottom of the screen, too! The people who read each story are different, and very talented – many of them are celebrities in some form or another such as Thora Birch and Mia Farrow. I haven’t been unhappy with a narrator yet!
Final Thoughts: I’m looking forward to collecting all of the Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVDs – they provide so many hours of great stories! The sets make terrific gifts, too. And I love that they are available in various sized box sets so that you can purchase favorites. Recommended for ages 3-9.
