What we thought:  Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVDs bring some of the best books and characters to life.  The kids are really enjoying watching these movies!  I love how Scholastic groups the movies together by theme.  A has actually taken a few few to school to share with her class and her teacher said all the kids really loved watching them!  These DVD collections are fantastic and would make wonderful gifts this holiday season.  Since so many of these books are award winners, it is safe to say these collections can be considered quality children's entertainment:)  ABCD Diaries gives Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVD Collections an A+!
