New From Scholastic: Stone Soup…and Other Stories from the Asian Tradition

posted by Nell Minow

My very favorite series for kids has a new release, Stone Soup…and Other Stories from the Asian Tradition from Scholastic Storybook Treasures. Scholastic takes the very best in children’s literature and makes them into DVDs that gently animate the original artwork with top voice and music talent.  Here actor B.D. Wong (“Law and Order: SVU) reads the title story and “The Five Chinese Brothers” (it takes each one’s special talents to work together to rescue a sibling), “Lon Po Po: A Red Riding Hood Story from China,” and “Stonecutter” (one of my very favorite stories — about the foolishness of envying the power of others and overlooking your own).  The read-along captioning is a splendid way to encourage beginning readers.

I have one copy to give away.  Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Stone Soup” in the subject line and tell me your favorite kind of soup.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only.)  I will pick a winner at random on February 3.

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone
    else encountering issues with your site. It looks like some
    of the written text on your posts are running off the screen.

    Can someone else please comment and let me know if this
    is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen
    before. Kudos
