Editorial Reviews

Product Description

CORDUROY (Written and illustrated by Don Freeman) Corduroy longs for someone to take him home from the department store. He thinks that finding his lost button may help, so he searches the store when nobody is around. Will Corduroy find the botton on his adventure? (Live Action)

YO! YES? (Adapted from the Caldecott Honor Book, Written and illustrated by Chris Raschka) Playing alone isn’t very fun. But when a simple, "Yo!" is answered by a simple, "Yes?" these two boys become the best of friends!

HERE COMES THE CAT! (By Frank Asch and Vladimir Vagin) A village of mice is in an uproar as the ominous shadow of a big cat approaches. "Here comes the cat!" they shout. What will happen when the cat finally arives?

DVD Features: Full-Length Bonus Story Exclusive to DVD: "The Rainbabies" by Laura Krauss Melmed, Illustrated by Jim LaMarche; Read Along; Interactive Menus; Story Selection

Scholastic excels with this trio of timeless children's stories, artistically adapted to video, celebrating friendship and understanding. The most recognized of the bunch is Don Freeman's Corduroy, a live-action rendition of the beloved bear who sits on a department store shelf, in need of a button and a friend. He finds both, but not before an adventurous romp during the night shift in the darkened store. In the stylistic story Yo! Yes?, Chris Raschka's illustrations spring to life when two solitary boys--one playing basketball, the other plain lonely--meet face to face. Their simple interactions convey the sweet overtures of a budding friendship. In the last tale, a peaceful village of mice gets into an uproar over the ominous news, Here Comes the Cat! As the message reverberates, panic ensues until a surprise ending reminds us that sometimes our greatest fears can become the most, er, delicious opportunities. Included is a "read along" feature and bonus story, The Rainbabies. (Ages 2 to 5) --Lynn Gibson

5.0 out of 5 stars What a beautiful world! March 13, 2004
I bought this dvd for the Corduroy story. After checking it out of the library repeatedly for my 3 year old twins, I decided to buy it. What a surprise the other stories were! My son loved "Here Comes The Cat" and watched it four times at his first viewing. "Yo Yes" is a delightful story about friendship. However, the best surpise was the beautiful and touching "The Rainbabies" described on the package as a bonus. It is the star of the dvd. These are all wonderful stories and it makes me long for the world portrayed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful March 15, 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This superb video will delight viewers of all ages. Each of the stories here is heartwarming, but the classic "Corduroy" is a marvelous treat for everyone, including this 50-year-old child. The producers should be commended for this wonderful work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic May 10, 2007
We had Corduroy on VHS when I was little. We used to put it on when it was raining or needed to be entertained. We watched so intently - Mum loved it because we went dead quiet from the moment it went on - listening and watching intently.

Time passed, we grew up, moved out of home, got married, then the pitter patter of tiny feet. We asked Mum to pull out Corduroy to show the next generation ... and she had to admit that she'd lent it to a friend who had accidentally taped over it!

I searched for it on the net and could only find this version. From the cover I thought it was a cartoon version but figured it was better than nothing so ordered it. When it arrived, we put it in the DVD player crossing our fingers that it would have some of the magic of the original. We held our breath ... and were delighted; it was the original 1986 version of Corduroy!!

As for the other stories? Just icing on the cake!

This DVD is a must for any kids (and grown up kids) collection!

My niece loves it when I read the book "Corduroy" to her and since receiving the movie for her 4th birthday she watches it incessantly. It's a wonderful story and a wholesome video choice for a little girl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite books come to life February 25, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm a special ed teacher for K-1 and my students love these videos. They add a visual depth to these classic stories. Don't forget to view the extras and you can also have the words displayed as well. I find them invaluable for illuminating literature. Most stories are no more than 7-10 minutes long and so are great for getting students involved quickly. Well worth the price. Students ask for them over and over again. Get the books too and students begin to engage with the books and get excited keeping up with the video.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Scholastic DVDs September 27, 2008
This is one of the best of the Scholastic DVD collections. Corduroy is a live action film made in the 70s I believe. A little girl finds the bear of her dreams but he is missing a button so the bear spends the night trying to find one. The film is very nicely done and effective. The other stories are very well done too. Here Comes the Cat! is an animated film which is fun to watch. The Rainbabies is a wonderful book I've never even heard of before but I will look for it. Everything about this DVD is wonderful. Sharp pictures, good sound and the stories are great.

Corduroy is a great movie to show to 2-4 yr olds. The old fashion style of entertainment will trance your child. The little bear moves throughout the store in the middle of the night, looking for his button. Love it!
