Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVD Review and GIVEAWAY: TEENY-TINY and the Witch-Woman

Halloween is creeping up and what better way to spend the cool Fall nights than snuggled up under a blanket and watching a spooky movie?  Well, with preschoolers we prefer a little bit more cozy and a little less scary...that is why TEENY-TINY and the Witch-Woman by Scholastic Storybook Treasures is the perfect DVD!

This Halloween-themed DVD has 5 short stories that are great for ages 4 and up.  Each of the stories has the "Read-Along" feature which allows your child to see the written words while the story is read aloud! I love this feature and how it promotes one-to-one correspondence for preschoolers, and builds vocabulary for those already reading.

Here is what you get on the DVD:
  • Teeny-Tiny and the Witch Woman:  An old fable about 3 young boys who venture into the woods against their mother's wishes and get caught by a wicked old witch!  Don't worry they do escape, and a very good moral is learned "you better listen to your mother!"
  • The Boy With Two Shadows:  This one is about a little boy who just loves his shadow and agrees to "shadow-sit" a witch's shadow while she goes on vacation in return for a spell.  The boy has to learn to own-up to his commitment even when the naughty witch shadow starts acting up and getting him in trouble!  A happy lesson is learned regarding responsibility and following through on commitments.
  • Los Gatos Black on Halloween:  Our favorite story on the disc!  After all, what is not to love about learning a little Spanish while rhyming a silly story?  The kids really liked repeating the Halloween-themed Spanish words and the funny and cute ending (no, I will not spoil it)!
  • What's Under My Bed?:  A silly story about a young boy (Grandpa in his youth) and how he was afraid of everything!  The grandkids who were listening to the story were able to figure out "logical" explanations for all of his fears.  A great lesson in teaching your kids not to fear the dark or spooky sounds they hear in their rooms at night!
  • Kings of the Cats:  This one was an odd little story about a housecat whose master is a gravedigger who has seen the unthinkable...a procession of cats carrying a casket!  Turns out the deceased was the King of the Cats and in his passing a new King is chosen-can you guess who?
