Best of: Scholastic Video Collection


Here is one of those product posts that I couldn't be more passionate about!

Have you seen the Scholastic Video Collection? Scholastic has made a bunch of DVDs from all of your favorite, classic children's story books.

Why I love them:

1. They make my kids even more excited to get out the books they're based on.

2. The animation is very simple and directly from the book--essentially you feel like someone is reading the book to your child and the picture is on the screen. Because of that, it's so much more simple and far less visually stimulating than most kids' movies, a quality I highly value.

I'm telling you, these are the BEST. My kids go crazy for them. When I need a few minutes to take a shower or when we're on a road trip, I'd so much rather put one of these in than any of our other movies.

You can check them out here.


Enjoy!

Shannon,

If you follow my amazon link, you can find tons there. Also, every once in a while you can catch them at Costco!

A friend was just telling me about these videos this morning. I'm keeping my eyes open for them at the public library now.

Sorry. For some reason I just couldn't see a link in my browser,(Mozilla) I checked with a different browser and lo and behold there was a link. Thanks for sharing!
