Two new Scholastic Storybook Treasures feature animals with attitude

truestory3pigsTwo new SCHOLASTIC STORYBOOK TREASURES DVDs featuring animals with attitude saved us over Christmas.

The Georgia Christmas snow storm meant we were snowed in for four and half days in a mountainside cabin in Blue Ridge, Ga. Four days with a 2 and 4 year old and a quickly diminishing supply of treats (and patience). Fortunately, I had packed the two new Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVDs.

One collection “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and More Animal Adventures” (62 mins. + extras, $14.95) features Jon Scieszka’s fun and creative take on the Three Little Pigs along with four additional stories. Kids get to hear the rest of the story, straight from the wolf’s mouth and learn that the whole Big Bad Wolf thing was just a big misunderstanding.

The DVD also includes “The Pig’s Wedding” (adapted from the story written and illustrated by Helme Heine); “Wallace’s List” about a mouse who can do almost anything – as long as he has a list; “Henry Builds a Cabin”, from the book by D.B. Johnson and narratd by James Naughton and “This is the House that Jack Built”, narrated by Mandy Patinkin from the book by Simms Taback.

The collection also includes includes Cronin’s new classics “Diary of a Spider”, “Diary of a Worm” and “Diary of a Fly”, as well as “The Cow Who Fell in the Canal”, “Chicken Little”, “I, Crocodile”, “Hot Hippo”, “Waiting for Wings”, “Let’s Give Kitty a Bath”, “Roberto the Insect Architect”, “The Story of the Dancing Frog”, and “Dooby Dooby Moo.”
