I am a big believer in getting kids EXCITED about books. Anything that puts more books into the hands of children is not only valuable, but an incredible tool. While some kids are born with a natural love of reading, others need a bit of a nudge. Whether your child is an all-out bookworm, or more of a reluctant reader, Scholastic’s Storybook Treasure DVD sets will engage and entertain your child, while raising their overall interest in literacy!
The #1 award-winning DVD series is available for purchase and features a wide variety of titles. From old favorites like Where the Wild Things Are and Harold and the Purple Crayon, to new titles like The Curious Garden and Robot Zot!, there is a DVD collection that is just right for your child!
Each DVD features a handful of beloved children’s books-turned illustrated read-alouds. (Think Reading Rainbow without Levar Burton.) The stories come alive, and your child sits wide-eyed, soaking in the story. These videos build fluency, as your child hears the way a book should be read, with appropriate phrasing, pauses, and expression. Children who are already reading, or are beginning readers can read along, following the words on the screen. Learning new words, sounding out as they listen, your child is soaking in SO much information about reading. As a former teacher, I cannot express how important it is to instill a love of reading at an early age. I believe that Scholastic’s Storybook Treasure DVD sets can help.
My family was blessed to review three of Scholastic’s newest releases.
This 3 DVD set featured 13 animal stories including Whistle for Willie, Bark, George and Scaredy Squirrel. I have a house full of animal lovers, so they were delighted to see so many stories featuring their favorite creatures and critters.
My kids are HUGE Magic School Bus fans, and were SO excited to receive this set. This 3 DVD set featured 12 episodes of the beloved series. We went on dinosaur adventures, flew with the butterflies, and learned all about circulation (and so much more!) I love the way the Magic School Bus promotes both literacy AND science in such an engaging and non-threatening way. You will have little scientists on your hands in no time!
This 3 DVD set features 12 stories. My kids really enjoyed Too Many Toys (David Shannon is a favorite author), and The Curious Garden. This set had a really great variety of stories, sure to please everyone in the house. Each DVD in this set, had a specific theme, making it a great buy for any homeschooling families. The themes were “Rhyming Stories”, “Problem Solving” , and “Nature.”
Use a story from the Storybook Treasure DVDs as a change-up from your regular storytime, as an alternative to regular tv or movie watching, or as a valuable component in your homeschooling. The DVDs are reasonably priced and can be purchased straight from the site. (There is no need to wait for a book order!) Click HERE to see all of the available and upcoming titles!
