“Bink & Gollie” DVD from Scholastic Storybook Treasures (**GIVEAWAY**)


This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

Scholastic Storybook Treasures has assembled a collection of stories about friendship.  These have been narrated by terrific readers, animated to add some spice and then given a musical background and some sound effects to help make the story more “dramatic”.   This collection of stories shares tales about all kinds of friendships, both typical and unlikely.

~ Bink & Gollie

Co-written by the authors of “Because of Winn-Dixie” and “The Tale of Despereaux”, “Bink & Gollie” is the story of two girls who could not be more different, and yet remain the best of friends!

~ A Sick Day for Amos McGee

Amos McGee loves his job.  Because of his job, he has some unusual friends.  When Amos is sick and can’t come to work, what are his friends to do?  A heart-warming story of devotion and kindness.

~ The Other Side

What happens when “that girl” from “the other side of the fence” becomes a forbidden friend?  Good things happen.

~ Cat and Canary

An unlikely friendship between a cat and a canary leads to an event that saves the life of the cat.

Also included on this DVD are several interviews.  The first is an interview with Tony Fucile, the illustrator for “Bink & Gollie”.  The second is an interview with the author of” A Sick Day for Amos McGee” and his wife, the illustrator.  Last, but certainly not least, is an interview with Jacqueline Woodson, author of “The Other Side”.  Hearing their interviews makes the stories come alive and even more interesting.

Scholastic also adds a  Read-Along feature to each of their Storybook Treasures Collections.  Read-Along allows the viewer to choose to have to words on the screen and highlighted as they are used, or leave the words off the screen.  I ALWAYS choose to have them on the screen.  Even if the kiddo watching does not yet read, it is a good way to get words into their heads.  The older kids enjoy having them there, too, so they can read ahead a little.

Bink & Gollie  is available for $14.95 from New Kideo  along with the other Scholastic Storybook Treasures collections.  There are MANY to choose from.  Check them out – they make great gifts, resources for your classroom and additions to your home library.
