New Releases from Scholastic Storybook Treasures

As non-cable-tv subscribers, I'm often looking for new, educational DVDs to entertain my 3 year old son.  One source that I continually go to are DVDs from Scholastic Storybook Treasures, which compile some of our favorite books into video form.

September's releases, which we received and are enjoying, including Chrysanthemum and More Mouse Mayhem and the My First Collection Vol. 2 featuring Spoon.
Chrysanthemum is a cute story about a girl mouse named Chrysanthemum who doesn't like her long name, but eventually comes to appreciate it and develops self confidence through the experience. 
Also on that DVD are other stories by writer/illustrator Kevin Henkes--Owen and Weekend with Wendel, also nice stories.

My First Collection Vol. 2 includes the title story Spoon, which was new to us, along with 12 other tales.  The 3 disc DVD set also includes Dem Bones…and more sing-along stories which is really fun for the younger set with its catchy tunes, and That New Animal…and more stories about the new baby, which is perfectly timed for our family, since we just welcomed a baby in July.  

My son especially liked Blueberries for Sal, which we've read before.  Even though its an older title (published in 1949), its illustrations and story about the mischievous Sal are still appealing today.

I really like that Scholastic Storybook Treasures enhances reading while keeping kids entertained. I don't feel bad about letting my son watch these, since they reinforce themes and stories and are commercial-free, unlike cable tv. 

Check out more Scholastic Storybook Treasures via their website or in some specialty stores like Barnes and Noble.
Disclosure: I received copies of these DVDs sets for review.
