My boys and I own over 40 of the Scholastic Dvd's and I have to rate this as one of the best. All t the stories are based on real people, and the stories are so richly colorful and well done. This collection is for the older crowd, not the usual 2-8 but 5-10 year olds. The collection consists of books commonly used in 2 and 3 grade, Mrs. Rumphius, and her lovely lupines. My favorite is the Pot that Juan Built, which is in the style of The House that Jack built so the format, if not the content, will be familiar to children. The artwork is truly capitivating as is the narration. Snowflake Bentley and The Man Who Walked Between the Towers are also remarkable stories that will even teach adults something new. An excellent selection from scholastic which does not have a repeat on any other of their dvd's!
Just a note - I have commented on one version not knowing there is another version with the Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins and Jonathan Pryce! Great voice and great book.. am ordering the other version now!

I bought this DVD because one of the same title was on Netflix. It also had 3 other stories that I really, really liked.
So I bought this, thinking it was the same. It wasn't. It has 4 stories, but only 2 are the same as the Netflix one. I did
find the DVD which was on Netflix on another website and bought 2 copies. All is well that ends well.
