I received copies of Scholastic Storybook Treasures in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
It has been rainy around here. I love the late summer storms, they provide perfect afternoons to snuggle up with my kids and watch some movies! We popped some popcorn and got comfy.
Bink & Gollie…and more stories about friendship
Meet Bink and Gollie, two precocious little girls —two girls unlikely to be friends. Bink loves peanut butter and Gollie love pancakes, but sometimes opposites make the best of friends. These girls share their adventures and stress just how important compromise can be in a friendship. Other featured stories are “A Sick Day for Amos McGee” by Phillip C. Stead, “The Other Side” by Jacqueline Woodsen, and “Cat and Canary” by Michael Foreman
Children Make Terrible Pets…and more stories about family.
How many times have we heard the tale of a child bringing home a new pet, begging their parents to keep them? What if the roles were reversed? In this cute and funny story Lucy, a young bear, finds a small boy in the woods and brings him home to her mother. Her mother tries to convince Lucy that children make terrible pets, but she has to see for herself. Other featured stories are “All The World” by Liz Garton Scanlon, “Crow Call” by Lois Lowry, and “Elizabeti’s Doll” by Stephanie Stuve-Bodeen.
Don’t Let The Pigeon Stay Up Late!…and more stories by Mo Willems
The Pigeon is at it again! It’s getting late, but the Pigeon refuses to go to bed. Will you let him stay up late? Other featured Mo Willems stories are “Knuffle Bunny Free: An Unexpected Diversion” and “Edwina, the Dinosaur Who Didn’t Know She Was Extinct”.
Scholastic Storybook Treasures are the #1 award winning children’s dvd series. My kids just loved them. We absolutely love reading at our house and it was so fun to watch our favorite books come to life on our screen. My little boy ran to the book shelf and pulled out his Pigeon books to follow along and we ended up reading more books long after the movies were over.
