Product Description

Amazon.com

Robert McCloskey's gentle picture books are the subject of the Scholastic Video Collection's Make Way for Ducklings... and More Robert McCloskey Stories. Unlike other installments in the series, the majority of the stories are not animated; as the narrator reads, the camera pans over the pages of the book. But even without the animation, the narration and music provide a winning combination for the three Caldecott honorees--Blueberries for Sal (about the girl who can't stop eating berries as she picks them), Make Way for Ducklings (the duck family looking for a home in Boston), and Time of Wonder (absorbing the sights and sounds of a bay in Maine)--plus Lentil (the boy who learns the harmonica because he can't pucker his lips) and the sea story Burt Dow, Deep Water-Man. (One Morning in Maine seems like a curious omission.) Most of the selections look just like the books, but Burt Dow is animated, and Blueberries for Sal and Lentil are lightly colored. The Scholastic Video Collection continues to be a treat for both kids who are discovering these books and grown-ups who have loved them for years. --David Horiuchi

Robert McCloskey is one of my favorite children's books writers. I loved his books as a child and love them now. I am a teachers and use them often in my ESOL classroom. While they are children's books, they are a bit more complex than many kids books and I often use them with students who are understanding English at an intermediate level rather than a beginning level. The illustrations are great and help quite a bit. They stories are timeless and haven't really aged. Kids enjoy them now as they did when he first wrote them. Highly recommended.

As with many Scholastic Books video adaptations, this is a fairly solid offering -- intelligent, well-produced and suitable for smaller children.

This DVD collection gathers video versions of several of Robert McCloskey's classic children's tales, notably "Make Way For Ducklings" and "Blueberries For Sal," which were written in the 1940s and '50s, and adapted into short films in the late '60s. The format is simple, but effective. The films are not animated: the original text is read aloud (nicely, in resonant male voices) as a camera pans across the original artwork. Although the production values are simple, they are well suited to the stories, and the overall effect is rather quaint, but not so much that modern kids won't still get a lot out of them. Bonus material includes short adaptations of "Lentil" and "Burt Dow, Deep Water Man." Wish they'd had time to do "One Morning In Maine" as well.

These classic Robert McCloskey stories are mostly scans of the wonderful books that millions grew up reading, along with fine, understated narration....first released on VHS tapes decades ago, they are priceless. The DVD images are clear and sharp, with fine audio quality. My only quibble is the original VHS edition {by Wood Knapp Video} contained an extended excerpt from a fabulous documentary, "Getting To Know Robert McCloskey", which featured commentary and interviews with this great author. This is NOT included on the DVD.

Otherwise, a wonderful, older-styled video presentation for children of all ages.

Make Way for Ducklings and More

Dear Sirs,
What a delightful surprise to find the McCloskey video available in DVD format! It is my sister-in-law's granddaughter's favorite! When they got a new TV there was no way to attach a VCR and everyone was very disappointed. These are wonderful old stories, told as if one were reading a book. Their family is all very happy with this gift--and your service was excellent. Thank you.
