Scholastic Storybook Treasures, My First Collection Vol. 3...R&G!


The kids and I are currently swoooning over a new DVD collection.  Just released from Scholastic is My First Collection, Volume 3 is out now and it became an immediate favorite here.  Here are the details.... 



PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Following the first two installments in the MY FIRST COLLECTION DVD series from Scholastic Storybook Treasures™ – which captured acclaim and awards such as the prestigious Parents’ Choice Gold, the Creative Child Magazine 2011 DVD of the Year, a NAPPA Gold and The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award – comes another DVD set sure to thrill preschoolers and their families alike: MY FIRST COLLECTION, VOLUME 3 FEATURING CHICKEN LITTLE. Featuring 12 delightful stories on three discs, the set includes three new stories never before released on DVD: “Chicken Little”, the perennial classic from the award-winning father and daughter team, Rebecca Emberley and Ed Emberley; “Scaredy Squirrel”, an hilarious adaption of Mélanie Watt’s first book in the five-book “Scaredy Squirrel” series and, “Katie Loves the Kittens”, about a puppy thrilled to have three kitten playmates.

The three DVDs in MY FIRST COLLECTION VOLUME 3 – part of the line that supports early literacy skills for the pre- and early reader – also sports Scholastic’s innovative read-along function and features narrators such as Sean Hayes, John Lithgow and Randy Travis. The discs are as follows:


Children will delight as a crazy-eyed chicken and all his panicked friends try to run away from a falling sky in CHICKEN LITTLE…AND MORE ZANY ANIMAL STORIES. The lead story, from Rebecca Emberley and Ed Emberley, is a bold and colorful retelling of the beloved tale; it’s joined by three additional adaptations, all colorful and comical, including “The Great White Man Eating Shark”, “The Three-Legged Cat” and “Dooby Dooby Moo”, along with a bonus interview with the Caldecott-winning Emberleys!


In the lead story on KATIE LOVES THE KITTENS…AND MORE FUNNY STORIES, little dog Katie is so excited when Sara Ann brings home three little kittens that she can’t stop herself from howling and trying to run after them. Don’t they know she just wants to play in John Himmelman’s adorable story? Also featured on a single DVD are three more animated adaptations, including Mélanie Watt’s never-before-released “Scaredy Squirrel” (also seen on Cartoon Network), “The Cow Who Fell in a Canal” and “Roberto the Insect Architect”. Bonus programming also features interviews with authors Mélanie Watt and John Himmelman, too!

Finally, young children will roar with laughter at Jules Pfeiffer’s “Bark, George”, a very silly story about a mother dog trying to teach her pup to bark. BARK GEORGE…AND MORE DOGGIE TALES includes four “tails” on DVD, all featuring adorable doggies! Aside from the title tale, included are “No Roses for Harry”, “Angus and the Ducks”, “Dot the Fire Dog” and a bonus story by Ezra Jack Keats, “Whistle for Willie”!


Aside from being part of the MY FIRST COLLECTION VOLUME 3 set, each of the single DVDs will also be available individually for $12.95srp.

Wow!  We are AVID readers in this house.  I am a self proclaimed bookworm trying to raise three children who adore books as much as I do and I think we are on the right path.  When I got this DVD set in the mail ans saw some of our favorite books set on the screen I was thrilled.  No, no, no....I am not saying DVD's take the place of books but what I am saying is that if your children are going to have some screen time, it is delightful to have them lose themselves in favorite books when they are presented in this way.  The animation is colorful and fun wihtout being so busy that it takes away from the real star....the story!  I really loved the read along function which is perfect for my pre-reading 5 year olds learning word recognition. 
The kids have enjoyed all three DVD's but I think they are paritcular fans of Katie Loves Kittens.  There is nothing better than hearing your children laugh out loud to a favorite book.  Scholastic has done a tremendous job of bringing favorite children's books to life with lovely animations and spectacular narrators.  I have been shopping New Kideo for our next batch of Storybook treasures and, I have to say, my want list is long! If you are looking for true quality picks for the child in your life or what is sure to be a well loved gift be sure to visit www.newkideo.com.  I am a fan as much as my children are!  The other day I meant to do some dishes while they watched a story but instead I felt drawn into the tale as well.  How can you pass up a classic like Chicken Little, animated and brought to life on the screen in such a charming way??  Needless to say, the dishes remained undone!  Bravo, Scholastic for a real winner in My First Collection Volume 3! 

I am so pleased to tell you that one lucky RBM will receive Scholastic Storybook Treasures:  My First Collection Volume 3.  Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter...
