5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Biographical Picture Books Adapted for DVD January 23, 2010
Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Henry Box Brown -- these are names that bring tears to our eyes, make our hearts swell in appreciation for courageous sacrifice, and make us incredibly grateful for the freedom we've been blessed with here in North America. March On! The Day My Brother Martin Changed the World is a new release in the Scholastic Storybook Treasures collection which presents beloved modern classic picture books in DVD adaptations complete with narration.

Four picture book adaptations are included on the DVD with 15 awards between them. March On! is written by King's sister, Christine King Farris, and focuses tightly upon King's unforgettable "I Have a Dream" speech. Martin's Big Words places the passionate defender of equal rights in the larger setting of the civil rights movement and draws more of his childhood upbringing into his adult character. Rosa shares the story of Rosa Parks, the bus incident, and the ensuing protests in a warmly personal way that children can relate to. Henry's Freedom Box is the tremendously sad, and equally jubilant story of Henry Box Brown and his unusual escape to freedom.

Overall the Christian background of many influential figures in the civil rights movement is prominently mentioned throughout the DVD. I truly appreciated this accurate depiction of the faith and motivation for these individuals, free from secular re-writing. The shorts are also often accompanied by moving gospel singing in the background as appropriate.

Unlike some of the other installments in the Scholastic Storybook Treasures read-along DVD series, March On! consists of modern storybook adaptations, all hailing from within the last decade. Like the other DVDs in the collection, March On!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the Classroom February 20, 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought this to use in my kindergarten classroom. I have a ton of the Scholastic videos and love them all in their own way. This is a great addition to a classroom library. My only issue is that one of the videos is extremely long, way too long for kindergarten. I did love having Henry's Freedom Box and Martin's Big Words to watch after I have read the books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Video Does Not Work February 15, 2014
Video was to be used for classes to watch during Black History Month. Unfortunately, when it was opened and played, it would not work. Tried it on multiple players, but still no luck. Too late for a refund as I've had it for a little while and just discovered it did not work.
