It’s no secret to the loyal readers of dkM that my son loves his Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVD’s. I wish you could have seen the look on his face when the Treasury of 100 Storybook Classics Set, which includes a whopping 16 DVD’s, arrived at our house. What big excitement for such a little guy! I was about as excited as he was because the collection is filled with stories I’m already quite familiar with, like Curious George, Rapunzel, and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. It took us quite awhile to make it through the whole collection, but we did it.
My son doesn’t watch television, mostly because my husband and I don’t really either. We made a choice long ago that we’d rather have more control over what is going into our son’s brain, and with television being what it is, we opted instead to search out DVD’s with some substance to them. With the Scholastic DVD’s, my son is watching short stories that not only allow him to read along, but there are no flashy images, no violence, and NO commercials! Thank heavens for that. And since many of the stories are narrated by the likes of Meryl Streep who, I might add, is one fabulous narrator, I find myself enjoying stories like “Chrysanthemum” right along with my son. I also enjoy hearing a 3 1/2 year old repeat the word “Chrysanthemum”. Boy, does that crack me up.
