If you haven’t seen Scholastic’s Storybook Treasures line of “read-along DVDs,” they’re a great blend of books and screen. Scholastic animated some of its best children’s books, along with award-winning titles, and put them on a DVD with the words so children can read along.
I’m all for anything that encourages children to read. Scholastic could have just made animated versions of all these books, but it’s wonderful (not too mention a smart business move) that they included the words of the books so they are read-along DVDs. Children who grow up with these with hopefully read books too. I’d say there’s more chance with these than for kids watching other children’s DVDs.
Anyway, my day-job website, www.discdish.com, is giving away huge bundles of Scholastic’s Storybook Treasures DVDs right now.
Among the books on the DVDs in the contest are Where the Wild Things Are, Wheels On the Bus, The Ralph Mouse Collection, Curious George, A Very Brave Witch, Corduroy and Harold and the Purple Crayon. Here’s a review of one of the DVDs, the Treasury of 100 Storybook Classics 2.
DiscDish.com is giving away four bundles of these DVDs, the biggest valued at $685.
So, get over there and try out for your chance to win. You can enter every day, plus put up links to the page to get more entries.
