You might know that I am possibly the #1 SuperFan of Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVDs.
I use them both at home and in my classroom. Well. Brace yourselves.
Scholastic Storybook Treasures has a brand new My First Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVD Collection series, an exciting new line of DVDs created specifically to support early literacy skills and a love of reading in the pre- and early reader (about ages 2 to 6).
The debut release, MY FIRST COLLECTION FEATURING SPLAT THE CAT is a 3-DVD set featuring 14 stories, beautifully adapted from the book versions that, together, have won more than 15 awards, including the Caldecott Medal, NAPPA Gold, and American Library Association Notable Books.
The first DVD is SPLAT THE CAT…AND OTHER FURRY FRIENDS features four gently animated, true-to-text stories: “Splat the Cat”, “Hondo & Fabian”, “Picnic” and Leo Lionni’s “Leo the Late Bloomer”.
I just read Leo the Late Bloomer to my class yesterday!
The second DVD in the set is THE STORY ABOUT PING…AND OTHER FINE FEATHERED FRIENDS, with the stories “The Story About Ping”, “Goose”, “The Most Wonderful Egg in the World”, “Duck on Bike” and “Rosie’s Walk”.
The DVD also contains a Spanish Language version of “The Story of Ping”.
THE NAPPING HOUSE…AND OTHER STORIES THAT RHYME has Catherine O’Hara as a narrator. Awesome! You know, she was the mom in Home Alone. And other roles, but who hasn’t seen Home Alone?
THE NAPPING HOUSE…AND OTHER STORIES THAT RHYME contains “Bear Snores On”, “The Napping House”, “Each Peach Pear Plum”, “Drummer Hoff”,“ and, “Wild About Books”.
You get over 100 minutes of animated story time, for a retail price of $24.95.
