I am a huge fan of Rosemary Wells’ animal characters, both in book form and on DVD.  The stories are heartwarming and the illustrations/cartoons are the sweetest I’ve come across!  I’ve always loved stories that featured animal characters dressed up in old-fashioned clothing, and this is no exception. :)

What’s special about Scholastic Storybook Treasures?  You can choose the Read-Along option and your child will be able to read the story as well as watch it, encouraging children who are learning to read!

About The Rosemary Wells Collection (Max and Ruby/Noisy Nora):

This two-DVD set includes eight episodes (four on Max and Ruby and four on Noisy Nora), each DVD approximately 75 minutes long.  Both include special features like an interview with Rosemary Wells, a music video, and Spanish versions of the episodes!  This set is recommended for children ages 2-7.

A Mom’s Thoughts:

This is my favorite Scholastic Storybook Treasures set!  Rosemary Wells’ stories are timeless, and I love that my daughter can watch them and learn her letters at the same time.  The only thing I don’t love is that there is an episode called “Otto Runs for President” on the Max and Ruby DVD, making only two of the episodes about Max and Ruby.  The other one is about a bunny named Morris, but it’s still a favorite.  The Otto episode not so much.  Other than that, I have no problems with this set and think it is more than worth the price of $19.99 for two Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVDs!  You can purchase it from the Scholastic website here.
