It’s the latest of the Storybook Treasures DVD’s – “The Night Before Christmas Special Edition” DVD Set. This set includes 12 holiday read-along stories on 2 DVD’s. Released on December 8th, it’s just in time for Christmas. My son and I gave it our thorough reviewing process which included much shared viewing and discussion time. (My favorite part? The snuggling!)
This set has all the warm and glowing holiday feel to it, along with familiar tales such as ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas and Little Drummer Boy, as well as some looks into the celebrations of other cultures in Too Many Tamales and In the Month of Kislev. My son thoroughly enjoyed Sam and the Lucky Money, a Chinese New Year’s story, as it ties in nicely with his Mandarin Chinese language hobby and “practicing” Tai Chi. The stories are brilliantly told, colorful, and so much more fulfilling than your average kids’ television show! Another great job by Scholastic and Weston Woods Studios.
