Our family has treasured our collection of Scholastic Storybook Treasures original Treasury of 100 Storybook Classics. This fall a new collection, jam packed with another 100 storybook renditions on DVD was released and has proven to be just as packed with value as the first collection.

For those unfamiliar with the Scholastic Storybook Treasures collection, each DVD includes an assortment of favorite children's picture books on DVD. The picture books (and their DVD renditions) range from the `70s to the current day and include a wide variety of presentation styles. There are live-action renditions, fully animated versions, versions where a camera pans over the original illustrations to provide movement and visual interest, and so forth. These collections are always eclectic (and that is GOOD!) and I'm always surprised by the new favorites my children discover.

There is really a lot here, and everyone can pick their own favorites. I tend towards favoring the `classics' like Caps for Sale, but I also liked many of the musical stories on discs 3 and 4, such as There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, and Frog Went A-Courtin'. My oldest daughter (7) enjoys the zany stories such as The Emperor's New Clothes (a version in which the emperor is drawn in the buff, cartoony style - not full frontal, but you can see his bum), Bark, George, and she LOVES discs 11 and 12 - this Miss Nelson and Black Lagoon stories. My middle daughter (4) and youngest (2) are pretty flexible, though I do notice a lot of requests for the Black Lagoon from my 4-year-old.

I purchased this set for a 4-year-old's birthday, and received a special "thank you" card to note that the parents enjoyed them as much as the child. Then I ordered another set for my own 3-year-old, and found myself sitting on the sofa to watch with her :-)

Here are my 2 cents:
1) First, this is an excellent collection of the children's books. Some of them have been children's favorites for generations.
2) Best of all, the beauty of the original picture books are well kept in the electronic format. The contents are appropriate for the young and older children to watch.
3) The captions are from the original books, which may help building vocabularies along the course.
4) The music and songs are engaging. As a child may have been familiar with some of them, he or she can sing along with it.
5) The lovely voices elaborate the stories. As I have accents by myself, I trust my daughter would capture a better pronunciation by listening to them.
6) Would suggest using this set as a good guidance for a library borrowing list, if the parents want to discuss the stories with the children further.

We currently subscribe to some of these stories on UVerse and Weston Woods (who produces these) are great! We watch 2 stories before nap and before bedtime. Then we go and read two books. We often try to buy books that we watched the story for and now have several I never even knew about (danny the dinosaur for example) our kids love them and for 20 mins before bed two stories really help them wind down.

Dem Bones is a favorite, it helped us teach my two year old about his bones. He knew the entire song in no time! We saw costco is selling this box set and decided to cancel the uverse programming and buy this and the first collection! HIGHLY recommend it. (We have a 2 year old and an almost 4 year old)

I am a teacher in a Pre-K classroom and these stories are great to use on the Smartboard! They make great transitions, time-fillers, and a way to get the kids settled down for circle time. I have the original 100 stories as well, and bought this set because the first one was so popular with the kids. The kids quickly pick their favorite stories, and parents enjoy them as well because they relate them to the books that they read to their kids at home. This set of dvds has many more popular children's books than the first set as well as stories that you can sing along to. Overall, this is a great product and definitely worth the investment!

We have had the first Scholastic Treasury for several years, and I was delighted to see this one come along. Very few, if any, repeats. I also like that this collection uses fewer jewel cases and takes up less space. The adaptations are excellent as are the choices of stories...classics and some newer stories, too. Highly recommended.

We haven't been through the whole set; there's a lot of content here. However our son has been watching them one by one and thinks they're great. I much prefer to pay for discs like these than to allow our children to watch television. This way, I know precisely what they're watching and they don't get bombarded with advertisements and other undesirable nonsense.

I have been waiting SO long for this to be in stock somewhere and I finally was able to purchase it. I am thrilled! My kids love the first volume, and I wanted to have the whole collection. The stories are so cute, and I love that these collections expose my kids to good picture books, especially popular Caldecott medal winners. My 5 and 3 year old especially love the Teacher from the Black a Lagoon stories. This collection has 2 DVDs in each slim case, so the whole box itself takes up less room than the box for collection one. I wish they had more volumes!! When I was looking to buy this, I finally contacted scholastic and they said they aren't currently producing volume 2, that's why it's so hard to find. Hopefully they get back to making more!
