Editorial Reviews

BookBox makes learning fun. Conceived by child literacy expert Dr. Brij Kothari and his team, at Stanford University, BookBox Stories entertain children and improve their reading skills at the same time. Using scientifically tested SLS (same language subtitling), children will improve their listening comprehension, reading skills and foreign language skills by watching these enchanting stories about Christmas and the holiday spirit. BookBox is a new DVD series uses Same Language Subtitling (SLS) synchronizing the text, audio and visual components of a story shown on screen or reading Karaoke style. SLS is the simple idea of subtitling music videos, film, television and DVDs in the same language as the audio. Word for word, what is heard is what will be read on screen. BookBox Enchanting Christmas Stories is a compilation of five short animated films featuring SLS, which has been proven to aid early readers in developing their reading skills. The stories will be available in numerous different languages on different discs. Enchanting animation, dramatic vocalization, beautiful music and easy-to-follow on-screen text come together to provide hours of viewing fun! Stories on Enchanting Christmas Stories are: The First Christmas - The star of Bethlehem recounts how on the first Christmas Eve, the angels came and requested him to shine with all his brightness to lead the three kings through the desert to meet baby Jesus. The Greatest Treasure - Peter stumbles upon a treasure map and decides to seek it out, meeting several animals along the way who join him on his quest. Together, they defy the obstacles in their way, find the prize and realize that the greatest treasure of all is friendship. Tucket the Bucket - Tucket, a gardener s favorite bucket, develops a hole, is tossed aside and rusts after a rainstorm. One day, a little girl discovers him, cleans the rust off and places a rose plant inside. Tucket takes care of the rose bud, making him the happiest bucket in the world. The Elves and the Shoemaker - A poor cobbler and his wife are aided by two elves who, during the nights, secretly craft several exquisite pairs of shoes. Soon, they become quite well known in town for their innovative designs. In the true spirit of the season, they show their thanks and appreciation by stitching the elves warm clothing and a pair of shoes for Christmas. Santa s Christmas - Oh, no, the usual hustle and bustle of preparing presents is gone as Santa has fallen ill! Children come to visit and offer him gifts, proving the true meaning of Christmas is wrapped up in love and kindness. BookBox Enchanting Christmas Stories are available in English only, English/Spanish, English/French, English/German, English/Italian, and English/Mandarin Chinese.
