Scholastic Storybook Treasures: My First Collection Volume 3
On DVD Now Best For Preschoolers (3-5)
Animation | Educational
Thirteen classic children's picture books come to life in this award-winning series from Scholastic.
Preschoolers love being read to and they really love animals, making this set a win-win for both parents and children! Stories are a fun way for children to learn important life lessons and methods of coping with their feelings, and these particular ones use a lot of humor to make their point. Top names like John Lithgow, Randy Travis, and Sean Hayes narrate beloved books like No Roses for Harry,Whistle for Willie, and Dooby Dooby Moo so your children can enjoy these stories even when you don't have time to sit down and read to them. And when they're old enough to read on their own, there's a special feature that allows them to do so!
Babies may not understand everything that's going on but are still likely to enjoy listening to the narrators' voices and watching the colorful animation. Two-year-olds will be enamored of the variety of animals, from dogs and cats to cows and chickens!
Preschoolers will want to watch these stories over and over again, especially some of the silly ones like "Bark George," in which a mother dog tries to teach her little one to bark, and "Katie Loves the Kittens," about a dog who gets overly excited when three little kittens are brought home to live with her. By the time kids are ready to read the stories themselves, they may already have memorized them!
The stories are probably too babyish for older kids in this age group but for those just starting to read on their own, this collection gives them a great opportunity to practice.
