My very favorite DVD series for children is the Scholastic Storybook Treasures.  They introduce the very best in children’s literature to kids and encourage them to learn to read. New this year: My First Scholastic Storybook Treasures Vol. 2 features 13 stories on three DVDs, including That New Animal, Is Your Mama A Llama?, the hilarious Smile for Auntie and the classic Blueberries For Sal.  I also love Volume 3 and Treasury of 25 Storybook Classics: Fairytales, Magic… and More!
