Why must children's videos scream at them? Hyperkinetic television conditions kids to expect fireworks from all of their entertainment, so that even the creators of the good stuff (Little Einsteins, Team Umi Zoomi and even the later versions of Dora the Explorer) believe everything must be BIGGER to compete. Scholastic classic stories provide a gentle, welcome respite from the usual kids' DVD. These are perfect for wind down time before naps or bedtime, or for in the car. The storylines are deceptively simple enough for preschoolers, but provide the substance and depth to condition children to appreciate literature over the flash and twaddle that constitutes junk food TV.

My four-year-old son just started reading, and when people ask me if I taught him, I say, "No! The Scholastic DVDs did!" (Much like the Leap Frog DVDs taught him his letters when he was 21 months old.) We went to the library and got the corresponding books with each DVD. He watches them over and over and OVER. He asks what words are, and then he learns them. And while most of these books he has memorized by now, he can read other books because of the skills he has learned. I would say age two is too young to be able to appreciate most of the stories. Put them away until age three or four and then try again.

These are such a great alternative to TV. Both my three and six year old enjoy them. They are books that they are both familiar with and they are read with a soft and gentle tone. The pace is slow and I think they are very calming unlike many other shows geared to kids which can get them overly excited. A few of them (like harold and the purple crayon) seem dated, but they kids don't seem to mind. I am very happy with this set and may even buy a few more.

I am a preschool teacher and love this DVD set! I first read the book to the children, then show them the DVD. This helps the children that need the visual reinforcement. They get so excited seeing the story that they are familiar with on the screen! 50 stories...most classics...great value.

This was a spur of the moment purchase because of the price. I didn't really know what it was that I was buying, I really thought they were actual books. But they are movies of books. And my kids love them. The voice on the movie is quite with soft music and lights. The kids really do watch it before bed and it helps calm them down. On busy nights when I don't have time to read a bedtime story I do think this is a good substitute. This keeps my 3 year old entertained and on up to my 10 year old. Would recommend!

My kids like some of these and not others, I think each child will be the same. These are not all great, some of them are even bad, but there are a lot and I promise that your kids 4 and under will like some of them. I will note that I paid 15 bucks for this set so it was way worth it. I would not pay over $30. So keep in mind the price.

My daughter received this for Christmas when she was 4. I now have two daughters; they're 6 and 3. They both love watching these videos. The set includes some classic stories and some we didn't know.

The videos aren't flashy Disney-worthy cartoons. They stay true to the look of the original book. I also love how the words of the story appear on screen.

We love these stories on DVD. My two yr old will watch as long as I will let her. A great alternative to cartoons, real stories being read to her like I would.
