Ya'll, I am just crazy about Scholastic Storybook Treasures!!! Lately they have announced the release of some of the most wonderful children's videos! I have been blessed to review some of them and offer a giveaway, too!!!! Keep reading to see all the details!!
First of all, Mallory, Jack, and I reviewed "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!... And More Stories by Mo Willems. When a city bus driver takes a break from his route, a very unlikely volunteer springs up to take his place: a pigeon! And, despite the bird’s impressive technical know-how, the bus driver doubts the pigeon can handle the bus. So, as the bus driver heads out the door, he appeals to the audience: “Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus!”. And when Pigeon’s relentless arguments in his favor eventually dissolve into a full-flown, feathers-flying tantrum, will he get his wish? You've just got to check it out and see!!!
I actually caught myself laughing out loud at "Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale". It wasn't even the main feature, but it definitely caught my attention and was so true-to-life! And, in the bonus live-action feature "Mo and Pigeon Visit a School," Mr. Willems reads his book before an audience of children and teaches them how to draw the pigeon. Mallory and Jack both loved this entire dvd and watched it over and over. This precious dvd has a run time of 49 minutes plus extras and will be in stores on September 28th, 2010.
The other dvd set we reviewed was THE RALPH MOUSE COLLECTION!!! This is a 3-dvd set!!! I don't know about you, but Beverly Cleary's The Mouse and the Motorcycle was my all-time favorite chapter book as a child. I loved hearing my 4th grade teacher read this story aloud to the class and could just picture Ralph zooming around the hotel room on Keith's toy motorcycle.
The other two dvd's in this set include Ralph S. Mouse and Runaway Ralph. Each of these dvd's adds more thrills, chills, and spills to Ralph's wild adventures. I love the live action and dimensional animation in each of these videos. No wonder they've been awarded the prestigious Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Children's Video.
Along with some great life lessons, these videos promote early literacy skills. And they have Scholastic's innovative read-along function which allows children to follow along with the narrator, promoting a love of reading. This dvd set will be in stores on September 28, 2010 for a retail price of $24.95. They have a running time of 3 hours, 15 minutes plus extras and are best for ages 3 to 9.
Now for the exciting news!!!!! Thanks for Beth Blenz-Clucas and Foundry Communications, one lucky winner will get to receive all 3 dvd's in THE RALPH MOUSE COLLECTION!!!!
