Product Description

Studio: Uni Dist Corp. (new Video Release Date: 06/29/2004 Run time: 63 minutes Rating: Nr

Amazon.com

Scholastic continues its well-crafted video adaptations of award-winning children's picture books in this trio of classic folktales. Tomie dePaola's Strega Nona tells the tale of an old, eccentric witch and her magical cooking pot that provides a hearty lesson for a young lad. Simms Taback writes, Joseph Had a Little Overcoat, the endearing fable of a kindly man and his beloved coat, both of which take on new life as they age--providing the delightful reminder that you can make something from nothing. Finally, Marcia Brown's tale of three savvy soldiers has charmed readers for more than a quarter century. Stone Soup is the ingenuous concoction of these soldiers when they visit a town bringing nothing but wits to feast on. Each story is an animated replica of its printed predecessor. The collection also includes a bonus story and the option to read along or hear a couple of the stories in Spanish. (Ages 3 to 10) --Lynn Gibson

Because my son (who is actually only 15 months old, much younger than the age recommendation) loves the Scholastic Where the Wild Things Are DVD, we decided to try another Scholastic Video. We both couldn't be more pleased. The story is simply animated and is accompanied by charming music. The narrator's voice is perfect and the adaptation of the story very close to the original. Joseph Had a Little Overcoat is also well done, but Stone Soup, because of the sparse illustrations (just black line drawings with a little red) and lack of animation, is not quite as enjoyable. I look forward to more DVDs from this collection.

I read the Stega Nona series to my 10 year old when he was little and relished sharing it again with my 3-year-old. The first book, Strega Nona, was the best of the series and when we saw this DVD adaptation, we were very excited to watch. However, the story misses singing or even reading the "pasta pot" song. This was the best part of our reading and my kids enjoyed singing it with me during story hour. The video brings to life a wonderful story, but misses our favorite part of the book. Great alternative to Dora, but will not replace story time.

What a nice surprise. All scholastic videos I have are great & this one included 3 stories I was unfamiliar with.including Princess Furball & Possum Magic. I enjoyed them so much I purchased the books. A pure delight & I learned that Princess Furball is an old "Cinderella" tale. I love the Grandma in "Posuum Magic"....so nice to see a tale about a grandchild & grandma...Excellent artwork & narration as well. Of course, Strega Nona complimented the book very well. I highly recommend this for age 3 to 99!

Great telling of Tomie dePaola story, as well as other award winners. I used this for my library classes, grades 1-3. Very accurate telling, sometimes I read the book aloud, then show the video. Children usually want to read a Tomie dePaola book after the lesson!!!
