Scholastic Storybook Treasures are award-winning adaptations of some of the best-loved children's books of all time. Each piece faithfully preserves the words and artwork of the original stories using animation, camera movement, and sometimes live action to bring the words on the page to life on the screen. The Dinosaurs, Trucks, Monsters and More! compilation features four DVDs with stories about things that fascinate children: dinosaurs, trucks, food, toys, and animals. The How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? disc follows some unruly dinosaurs as they get ready for bed, learn about manners, and spend a day at home sick in bed. Danny and the Dinosaur explores what might happen if a dinosaur came to life for a day, Stanley and the Dinosaurs features a clever live-action, animatronic dinosaur who uses his head to solve problems, Dinosaur Bones is essentially a jazz recitation of dinosaur facts, and T is for Terrible showcases a sensitive T-Rex who ponders his bad reputation. Trucks and other wheeled vehicles prove just how important they are to society in the second disc which includes I Stink, Trashy Town, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, and The Remarkable Riderless Runaway Tricycle. Friendship takes on some strange new forms in Arnie the Doughnut and The Beast of Monsieur Racine. In the third disc, imagination runs wild with fantastical creatures, everyday people, and strange mythical talents. Laugh along with the silly antics of Pete's a Pizza, take a fantastical journey to earth with the Moon Man, imagine what you can create with Max's Words, and ponder the remarkable talents of The Five Chinese Brothers. Other stories include The Great White Man-Eating Shark, The Island of Skog, and What's Under My Bed?. The final disc presents Beverly Cleary's The Mouse and the Motorcycle, a 41-minute live action, animatronic film from 1986 in which a young boy named Keith discovers and befriends a talking mouse who ends up riding his toy motorcycle and providing Keith with much-needed medication. The live-action Wee Gillis, from 1938, chronicles a boy's struggle to decide between the highland and lowland life in Scotland, highlighting his realization that he's destined to combine aspects of both ways of life. Each story is expertly narrated, often by celebrities like Chevy Chase or Anthony Edwards, most offer read-along options, and there are also three bonus Spanish versions of How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?, Danny and the Dinosaur, and Moon Man. For a multisensory experience, find a copy of the books and help your child follow along as she watches--it's doubly enjoyable that way and it might just inspire a lifelong love of reading. (Ages 2 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising Thrilled!!!! January 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD set fo my 3 year old. I had purchased a Scholastic DVD for him in the past that he really liked so I decided to roll the dice & hoped he would like these too. I have too say when I put the movies in and saw that they were read along and stories straight out of the 70's & 80's I -1) had a flashback to elementary school & -2) thought for sure my son would hate them!
I was surprised to see him so interested in the cheesey filmstrip like movie but he really likes them!! I guess there is something to be said about a good story!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good intro to books January 1, 2011
Verified Purchase
The movies are exact to the books that have been around forever. My son is only 2 but enjoys watching them. They are short and just the right duration for his attention span. I am also a teacher and think that having books brought to life in this manner is ideal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly entertaining and good value September 30, 2011
Verified Purchase
I am very choosy about what my children (ages 9 and 2) watch on the television. We don't subscribe to cable or satellite tv for that very reason. However, this particular type of video programming is totally awesome! These stories follow the books exactly as they are written, and my children know these stories word for word, so they would know if any artistic liberties had been taken. After watching these videos, my children are inspired to act them out or read the story books again and again. I find that very rewarding because, unlike other types of media, what they are acting out is wholesome and pure, child-appropriate behavior. Also, there are quite a few stories on each dvd, so you're getting a good value.
