Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVD Review: Caldecott Favorites

What's better than a rainy day, and snuggling up with your little ones under a huge blanket on the couch and watching a movie?  Well, maybe it could be better if the movie is a bunch of your favorite childhood stories come to life!  Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVD set: Caldecott Favorites (available November 22, 2011).

This boxed set would be the perfect stocking stuffer for ages 3 and up, and has all the features I love about Scholastic's Read-Along DVDs: great illustrations, celebrity narrators, and of course the read-along feature with the words highlighted on the screen.

Here is what you get on Caldecott Favorites:

Disc One: The Ezra Jack Keats Collection (63 minutes)
  • The Snowy Day (plus a bonus Spanish Version)
  • Whistle For Willie (plus a bonus Spanish Version)
  • Peter's Chair
  • Pet Show!
  • A Letter To Amy
  • The Trip
  • Apt. 3
Disc Two: Antarctic Antics...and more hilarious animal stories! (60 minutes)
  • Antarctic Antics

We really enjoyed all of the discs and I loved the mix of classic stories I remembered from my childhood (especially disc one), and the newer stories that the kids love (especially Bear Snores On).

The disc is sure to please all and is on our list of Top Picks For Christmas 2011!
