Skillful narration, faithful adherence to original texts and artwork, read-along text, and the addition of catchy music from a variety of genres has earned Scholastic a stellar reputation for transforming beloved children's books into excellent video programs. This four-disc, 25-story DVD compilation is an absolute treasure of classic and modern tales that explores everything from greed and self-absorption to the search for happiness, connection, and personal fulfillment.

The first disc presents five James Marshall retellings of classic fairy tales, including "Red Riding Hood," "Cinderella," "The Three Little Pigs," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," as well as the original story "Space Case," written by Edward Marshall and illustrated by James Marshall. Each of these fairy tales is beautifully illustrated, emphasizes a specific moral lesson, and features the classic extended endings like the hunter cutting open the wolf to save Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother. The second disc features Hans Christian Andersen tales that stress the importance of celebrating differences, being happy with oneself, and appreciating the talents and freedom of fellow people and animals. The delightfully entertaining stories include favorites like "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Emperor's New Clothes," as well as somewhat lesser-known works like "The Swineherd," "Nightingale," and the incredibly moving "Red Shoes" and "The Little Match Girl." Classic fairy tales "Rapunzel," "The Elves and the Shoemaker," "The Talking Eggs," "The Three Billy Goats Gruff," "Lon Po Po: A Riding Hood Story from China," and "Princess Furball" make up the third disc and feature a variety of art styles and meaningful messages about attaining true happiness. The final disc presents five stories about magic, focusing on the misuse of magic in "Strega Nona," ill-considered wishes in "Sylvester and the Magic Pebble" and "The Stonecutter," unlikely magical powers in "The Amazing Bone," and the value of cunning in the Turkish tale "Teeny-Tiny and the Witch-Woman." Revisit some classic fairy tales and discover a few new favorites with this great Scholastic set. (Ages 3 to 9) --Tami Horiuchi

My kids are watching these over time, though it has taken them a while to warm up to them. They will work best for kids who are really able to follow a more complex story and language; school age more than toddler or preschool.

Also, since these are traditional retellings complete with all the evil characters of the original tales, kids accustomed to Barney might find them upsetting.

One of those high-value finds that adults might find quite enjoyable along with their kids.

These DVD's provided many minutes of entertainment for my 2 grandchildren as my daughter and I took a 350 mile trip with them. They were quiet and interested and only asked for something when it was time to put a new DVD in the player.

Was looking for a video with Goldilocks and the Three Bears, so we tried this one. My 7 & 4 year old daughters LOVE these movies! They've watched them over & over again, and since there are several DVDs (each with about 6 short movies), they haven't tired of them yet. And the price was SO right!

My girls like these. You feel better about them watching it cause the words are there. Maybe it will help them read:) Most of the stories are good but there are a few weird one. Repunzel is definitely a bit disturbing when the prince ends up blind and wondering in the wilderness alone for a year while Repunzel has their twins. Over all there great, just be aware of the stories and choose whether all are right for your kid.

I use these videos as positive reinforcers of social and character traits in guidance lessons. All of the stories are animated and hold the children's interest. There are several opportunities to ask higher-order thinking questions to prompt conversation with students.

My 5 year old daughter loves these DVDs ! When we do allow her to watch tv, I have no guilt with putting these stories on. Compaired to what "popular" shows are on tv now, these are much more relaxing and classic.

Our kids really like these videos and we are happy with the price. The only thing I don't like is that a few of the other stories are kind of...boring. But, the kids don't seem to mind!

Excellent DVDS. I was hoping to find the fairytales and stories on DVD that I had learned when I was a child. Plus other fairytales and stories I may have heard of but did not know, and others that were new to me.
