Scholastic makes the stories come alive with terrific narration, fun background music, sound effects and animation/camera work to highlight the illustrations in the books. Our favorite story is Blueberries for Sal. This is a fun, lighthearted story that will make you laugh and gasp in the same breath. We loved the way the narrator read the story and enjoyed the use of camera work to make the illustrations come alive. I think you will also laugh when you hear the story of That New Animal. It tells the story of a new baby from the perspective of the animals in the house. Truly a hoot! All the stories on Dem Bones will have you singing along as you watch the illustrations make the songs come to life.
We also enjoyed the documentary on the creation of music for the book Spoon. I appreciate the little bits of added information tacked on to the end of the DVDs. Opportunities for more learning are always welcome!
I love the read-along feature on the disks. It puts the words the narrator is speaking on the screen and highlights them as they are spoken. This feature helps viewers take steps towards reading. I highly recommend you use it each time you watch a story.
This 3-DVD collection is available for $24.95 or you can also purchase each disk separately for $12.95.
If you like these stories, check out the upcoming release of The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog (Mo Willems Collection, Volume 2) to accompany Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus (Mo Willems Collection, Volume 1). Our family loves Mo Willems books. If you don’t know about them already, I encourage you to check them out.
You can check out Scholastic Storybook Treasures on facebook, too!
So, go read to your kids. Then let them listen to someone else read the same story to them. It can be an amazing adventure!
