My Thoughts:

Here is another Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVD, which would make for a great Valentine's Day gift for your children.  Geared towards children ages, 4-8, this DVD is packed with wonderful Valentine's Day themed short films that will not only entertain your little one, but also share morals and lessons.  I always like to talk about what positive messages these short films relay after viewing with my daughter.  Again, with the read-along feature, young beginner readers will love following along, as they read each word which is highlighted as it is spoken.  What a great teaching tool!  Scholastic has done it again with another great DVD.  We couldn't choose a favorite among the 5 holiday-themed short films in this collection.  This will definitely be added to our holiday movie collection and watched year after year, for years to come.
