Classic children’s stories are often classic for a reason: they teach very important lessons. One of the stories that I took quite seriously as a child was The Boy Who Cried Wolf. I understood all too well that if I caused a scene I could quickly get the attention of my parents. But if nothing was really wrong, I was putting myself at risk in the future. Something might really go wrong but my parents might not believe me!
Scholastic has put this classic tale on dvd, and while Darah is still a bit too young to really get the story, I’m so glad to have it in our collection as she gets older. There are also some other fantastic stories on this set, such as Rikki-Tikki-Tavi (this story is so suspenseful!) and Stone Soup, which is also a classic, in my book. I should also mention that Stone Soup is narrated by Mandy Patinkin, and we’ve already established how much I love him.
The stories in this collection also have discussion questions, so that families can really talk about what is going on and the meaning the stories have. All the stories combined run 74 minutes and the dvd is available for $14.95 (but you can snag it much cheaper on Amazon). The stories are real keepers, so I definitely recommend adding this one to your collection!
