Review - Stellaluna DVD from Scholastic ~ A Heartwarming Tale Adapted from the Children's Classic


ScholasticI'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 adapt the classic children's book, Stellaluna, for the big screen.  Keep reading to learn more!

I reviewed the Stellaluna DVD from Scholastic, which retails for $12.95, but is currently on sale for $9.99 with FREE SHIPPING.

Stellaluna DVD from ScholasticBased on the beloved, best-selling children's book by Janell Cannon, the fun-filled animated feature Stellaluna follows a spirited young fruit bat who finds friendship, love and acceptance in the most unexpected places!  When the adorable young fruit bat Stellaluna is separated from her mother, she's adopted by a family of birds.  Soon, however, she discovers finds that she just can't fit in.

Her playmates like to sleep at night; she wants to fly.  They whistle and sing; she doesn't even have a beak!  But just when it seems like Stellaluna will always be an outsider, she makes an amazing discovery that will help her to cherish the things that make her different.  And, she'll also discover that an open mind and an open heart can lead to the greatest gifts of all.

Brimming with music, laughter, warmth and excitement, Stellaluna - a story which wonderfully illustrates the very essence of friendship in humorous and touching ways - is sure to capture the hearts of families everywhere!

Bonus Features:

  • Stellaluna Activity Booklet
  • Innovative Read Along Function
  • Sing-Along Feature

Riley greatly enjoyed this DVD and so did I.  If you would like to inspire a child's love of books in a whole new way, then I highly recommend the Stellaluna DVD from Scholastic.

Product Review 4 Stars
Disclosure: I received the Stellaluna DVD from Scholastic 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!
