This is similar to the Scholastic Video Collection series but it's not the same. It's made by Disney. I'm sure you already know what the stories are. They are nice and slow. The scenes are very true to what the drawings in the books are like. The animation is nice.

Most of the reviewers seem to have bought this for kids about 2 years old. My daughter is 4 and enjoys it. The back of the dvd says ages 5 and under.

My daughters favorite part is the bonus feature. It's a game called Eating Through the Week. There's all 7 days of the week and you have to help the caterpillar choose the food he will eat for that day. Each day has 3 choices and the child moves the arrows on the remote to move the caterpillar to the correct choice. Then they press the enter button. As an example, a pleasant voice says, "Today is Monday and on Monday the very hungry caterpillar needs to eat one apple. Can you help the very hungry caterpillar find one apple? Just move the highlight over the picture of one apple and press enter on your remote control. Great! You helped the very hungry caterpillar eat through one apple on Monday! But he's still hungry. Now it's Tuesday and.........", etc. It's actually a very cute game and the best part of the entire dvd, in my opinion. It's too bad that there isn't at least one more game to choose from. I wish there were games like that on the Scholastic videos, it would enhance them so much. This is the first time my daughter has played a game on a dvd and thinks it's the best.

So, just an fyi....if you are reading these reviews and decide you would like to purchase this, go with the dvd not the vhs. You can find the vhs for cheaper....but I would assume you'll miss out on the game. We got this dvd from the library.

We bought this in addition to our collection of Eric Carle board books for our two year old son. The narration and animation are beautifully done, and true to the books. The stories are simple and quiet but held my very active toddler's attention completely. I wish there were more of these stories available on DVD.

We have scholastic books-on-movie format, such as the "Goodnight Gorilla", and this by far is the best I have seen. I love to watch it with my 2 year old before bedtime. It is the perfect way to wind down for a good night's sleep. She is enthralled by watching her favorite stories that we read together come to life. This is beautifully done with music, animation, and you can even have the words show (you need to choose the option for the hard of hearing, and the words will come up on the screen).

Absolutely well done, Disney! I wish there were more out there like this one!

I promote BOOKS for my children, not videos. However, this video is exceptional. Beautifully done, it is very much in keeping with the spirit of the books. 'Papa, Please Get the Moon For Me' is wonderful. The music is serene.

My wife is a kindergarten teacher from Berlin Germany who now lives in USA. Eric Carle is a native German and is famous in Germany with Kindergarten types of teachers. He was also an accomplished marketing exec before turning to his real love - children stories. The quality of this DVD is similar to Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven. It's surprising so few are aware of Eric Carle's ability to relate to small children in the US. This is a real gem. Delightful, brilliant! Julian Nott composes the music which awsome. If you have small children and like fine classical music, give yourself a special treat and order this DVD!

My two-year-old has to watch this DVD every day. He loves the colors and the cute animation. He always enjoyed The Very Hungry Caterpillar book, and I think it amazes him that he finally gets to see the caterpillar move.

Another favorite story is the one with the chameleon in it. The chameleon visits the zoo and takes on a characteristic of every animal he has contact with. Pretty soon he has a goldfish fin hanging from his chin and eventually wings, etc.

All of the stories are entertaining and calming.

We love the books, and this video is wonderfully true to the stories. It is very quiet and great for naptime wind-down.

My two year old and I originally watched clips of this on YouTube and were utterly enchanted. I purchased the DVD and was very disappointed by the Disney narration. The original has British accents and a fairly dry delivery. The Disney version has that same guy who does the "Look what's coming out of the Disney vault!" commercials and his inflection is just awful. I will try to find a copy of the Scholastic version used and donate this one.
