Gift Guide 2012: Kids

posted by Nell Minow

Is there a Wimpy Kid in your life? Fans of the movie series will enjoy the box set of the books by Jeff Kinney and the Don’t Scramble The Egg Game.


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!



Preschool and early reader Nickelodeon fans will enjoy Dora’s Fantastic Gymnastics Adventure and Dora’s Fantastic Gymnastics Adventure, and older kids will will have a lot of fun with Fresh Beat Band’s “The Wizard Of Song”.  Bonus: I have one copy of each of the Nickelodeon DVDs to give away to the first person who writes to me at with the name of the DVD you want in the subject line.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only)  Good luck!
