I love the stories on this dvd as does my little boy. It is by far his favorite out of all the scholastic videos that we own. The Curious Garden is such a wonderful story and the narrator does a great job (has english accent). Fletcher and the Falling Leaves is another great story and my son will get up and dance when Planting A Rainbow comes on. We also own the book so he is constantly picking that book out of all the rest to read. The only story my son does not like is The Lion and the Mouse. It is a picture book with no words and thus there is no narration on the video, only music and animal sounds.

Kids love this show. This is a good movie containing 4 short stories that entertain the kid very well and teach a lesson. What else would you expect from scholastic? The worst part about it is the shows are short and your kid will keep asking you to start it over again. The good is that there is a play all button to play all 4 stories in a row.

What a great video. I bought this video to use with my 2nd graders. The stories are wonderful stories from nature that are inspiring. My favorite is The Curious Garden. I already loved this children's book, but watching it come to life was magical. My children were amazed at the rooftop gardens on screen. A close second were the authors interviews. How wonderful for my students to see "real" authors discussing their craft.

Loved this scholastic DVD. We have enjoyed all the scholastic DVD's so far and would recommend them to anyone. I usually get the book at the same time so my autistic daughter can read along with the DVD.

I bought this video because we rented The Lion and Mouse from the library and loved it. But The Curious Garden is such an amazing story- I'm so glad to have to have all of these classic stories animated. My 4 yr old loves this disc.
