I'm thrilled by how much Riley loves books, since it's always been one of my main goals to help her develop a lifelong love of reading. There are so many wonderful children's books out there, many of which I remember reading when I was little, that I would like to pass on to Riley.
Well, Scholastic has found a new, entertaining way to bring all of the great children's books and authors to life with their Storybook Treasures DVD Collections. I had the chance to review two of these collections with Riley. Keep reading to learn more!

Riley greatly enjoyed both of these DVD collections and so did I. It was wonderful to see the brilliant illustrations of these storybooks come to life all while narrated by some first-class readers. I also love how now I have a high-quality option for Riley's television viewing choices beyond what's offered on Nick Jr. and PBS.
I like Sesame Street and Caillou as much as the next person, but it's good to mix it up with less animated offerings from time to time as well. If you would like to inspire a child's love of books in a whole new way, then I highly recommend any of the DVD selections in the Scholastic Storybook Treasures collection.
Disclosure: I received The Night Before Christmas Special Edition DVD 2-Pack and Caldecott Favorites DVD 3-Pack from Scholastic Storybook Treasures in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.
I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
