Scholastic Storybook Treasures “Merry Christmas, Splat” DVD (**HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY**)


Scholastic Merry Christmas Splat ad More Winter Stories

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

My kids are a big fan of Splat the Cat, especially since they read these books at school.  Pair that with their excitement for the holidays, and they were thrilled to be able to watch this winter-themed DVD from Scholastic Storybook Treasures, “Merry Christmas, Splat.. and More Winter Stories“.

Scholastic Storybook Treasures brings books to life in DVD renditions, complete with narration, music, and sound effects.

Another great feature for beginning readers is that you can set the DVD so that you can read along on screen with the narrator.

There are four great stories on this DVD:

MERRY CHRISTMAS, SPLAT (Written and illustrated by Rob Scotton, narrated by John Keating) Splat is trying hard to be good before Santa’s arrival so he can get all the presents he’s dreamed of on Christmas day!  Both my girls are big fans of Splat the Cat, and this is a cute story about trying to be especially good to impress Santa!

FLETCHER AND THE SNOWFLAKE CHRISTMAS (By Julia Rawlinson, illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke, narrated by Katherine Kellgren) It’s Christmas Eve and Fletcher wonders how Santa will find his burrow through all the snow.  A sweet story about woodland creatures that have moved to a new burrow, and hope that Santa can find them!

SNOWFLAKE BENTLEY (By Jacqueline Briggs Martin, illustrated by Mary Azarian, narrated by Sean Astin) This is the story of Willie Bentley, who loved and learned all about snowflakes.  This is an interesting biography about trying to capture images of snowflakes, and both my girls were intrigued.  They were excited to see someone trying to take a photo of snowflakes.

OWL MOON (Written and narrated by Jane Yolen, illustrated by John Schoenherr) A girl and her father search the moonlit woods for the Great Horned Owl.  A classic story about looking for owls on a moonlit night.

Bonus Features: Behind-the-Scenes Look at Creating the Animation for Fletcher and the Snowflake Christmas; Read-Along.

Scholastic Merry Christmas Splat and More Winter STories DVD

My kids really enjoyed this DVD, and I think you will too.  It is a nice mix of holiday and winter stories, and gets you in wintertime spirit!  I also love that these are all award-winning stories that all kids should hear, and even though my older daughter had heard some at school, she was that much more enthusiastic about them.  This is a great way for my 6 year old to practice reading along with the words on screen, and for my 4-year-old, a perfect introduction to some really great stories.
