Scholastic has just published some great new DVDs and I’m excited to be sharing them with you today!
First up, we have Stories About African American Heritage Featuring March On. This is a FANTASTIC 3 DVD set that commemorates Black History Month. In the set you will find 13 award-winning stories that run a total of 3 hours. You will see stunning illustrations and hear narrators such as Phylicia Rashad (one of my childhood idols…this is Claire from The Cosby Show!), James Earl Jones, Samuel L. Jackson and Forest Whitaker. I would say that this box set is a true treasure, and a must not only for schools, but also for personal collections. This set retails for $24.95 and can be found here.
In addition, Scholastic is celebrating Chinese New Year by releasing Stone Soup And Other Stories from the Asian Tradition. Stone Soup is actualy one of my favorite folktales because of what it highlights: when people pool their resources, the sum is greater than the parts! Three other stories are also found in this collection, and if you are a Law and Order: SVU fan, you will recognize the voice of B.D. Wong. This DVD is 43 minutes in length (that’s the perfect amount of time for a Saturday afternoon “movie” viewing experience for my 3 year old!). It retails for $14.95 and can be purchased here.
Our Scholastic DVD collection is one of our prize possessions in our home. If you haven’t had the pleasure of owning any of their titles yet, let 2013 be the year you give them a try. You will love them, I absolutely know it!
Win it!: One lucky Stuff Parents Need reader will win a copy of March On, and one reader will win a copy of Stone Soup!
