5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable Value, Eclectic Collection December 3, 2009
Format:DVD
Scholastic's collection of 100 Storybook Classics is like no other DVD set we've ever owned. Crammed full of animated renditions of well-loved modern children's classics and a wide range of animation styles that match the feel of the original picture-books, there's no better bang for your DVD dollar.

Parents will be thrilled to find well-respected works of literature that have endured the test of time ' Robert McCloskey's Make Way for Ducklings, Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, and H.A. Rey's Curious George Rides a Bike are only a very small sampling of well-loved tales that are found in this collection.

Newer inclusions in the set include Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr., Max's Words by Kate Banks (a new family treasure), andDiary of a Spider by Doreen Cronin. This is such an eclectic collection of animated stories that there is something here for everyone. Animation ranges from pans over the original picture book pages in The Five Chinese Brothers by Clare Huchet Bishop, to full-blown modern animation in Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson, to live-action shorts in Frog Goes to Dinner based on Mercer Mayer's book of the same title. Likewise the production age of the shorts range from the '70s through to recent years.

Divided into sixteen separate DVDs, each represents a thematic collection of stories. For example, the Diary of a Spider DVD also includes other 'critter stories', one about a mouse, another about a 'tadpole', one about a frog, and the other, a termite. Other DVDs include the work of specific authors, the Where the Wild Things AreDVD includes six animated shorts from Maurice Mendak, and the Ezra Jack Keats Collection includes seven stories from ' you guessed it- Ezra Jack Keats.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Storybooks-- Not the greatest DVD set July 9, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thought this set was a great concept. It comes well packaged and each of the main books included covers one of the DVD pages. When I list the names below, the stories on the cover will be labled with an "*" ...

I was disappointed by the organization. Yes. The stories artre all clearly listed on the box in alphabetical order, but they're hard to find on the DVDs because they're not organized in any particular way per DVD set.

For example. I LOVE Courduroy. They probably could have included the live action movie along with the two cartoon versions that more closely resemble the books. Instead.. they put a book called "Yo! Yes?" on the DVD... That starts out with two kids throwing a ball back and forth saying and one saying "You? ... .... .... " pointing to himself and tossing the ball and the other one responding "You? ... ... ...." ...... hmmmm... not so educational. Not so interesting. Kind of a waste of space on the DVD. This particular DVD also has "Here Comes the Cat!" -- which I had never heard of.

While skimming the DVDS, I thought I was getting jipped. 3-4 stories on each of the 16 DVDs doesn't really come up to 100. Thats when I noticed they were counting sories they put in the DVD features as a special. I thought the features area was supposed to be for author comentaries... actual extras.. ?? Then.. The best part of this is that you actually only get 90 stories. 10 are also available in Spanish. If you're not learning spanish.. Given that most DVDs currently come in English and Spanish--- This was a little disappointing. AND misleading. I think that's why I couldn't find a list of stories included ANYWHERE.

The "read along" is really just captions. You can turn them on yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun collection for parents and toddlers November 30, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We are very pleased with this set. The titles are both familiar--like ones from Ezra Jack Keats and Robert McCloskey--and new. But the DVDs are all well-done, with excellent music and voice-overs. Some of them, particularly the Antarctic Antics, are hilarious. Some are winsome. None, to quote Chrysanthemum's father, are jaundiced. Our toddler is afraid of _Where the Wild Things Are_ and loves _Chrysanthemum_. We love Ezra Jack Keats' works, and the extra interview with him is fantastic. Overall, for about $45, I think that this set is a steal. The local library uses individual DVDs from this series for movie night!

If I had to pick one favorite out of this whole set, it would be Meryl Streep reading _Chrysanthemum_. She is absolutely perfect. She really 'gets' kids, and she knows, probably from direct experience, how fragile and impressionable children can be. The set is worth it to me to hear her read that one story.

I do not believe that these can help kids learn to read, though. And I would be remiss to advise parents to substitute real reading with these. What we like to do is to read the stories before the DVD and then read an additional story afterward. One more warning...Simms Taback could become your very next favorite author and illustrator. He is very clever, and the colors and collages are bright and stimulating.

5.0 out of 5 stars A healthy way to entertain children May 28, 2008
Format:DVD
As a Reading Specialist and grandmother, I enthusiastically endorse the Scholastic Treasure of 100 Storybook Classics. First of all, they selected excellent books for children. Secondly, they utilized the illustration style of the originals, so the aesthetics of the books are clearly presented and preserved. Thirdly, the animation is well-done though not overdone. The pacing is slow, as when a book is read aloud. This gives the listener a chance to absorb the story, just as he or she would if the story were being read aloud. It even has the option to include the text on each page, if you have a blossoming reader. In fact, this is just about the equivalent of having someone read aloud great picture books for your child, while you do -- whatever.
