Holiday Gift Guide | The Night Before Christmas & More Classic Holiday Tales 2-DVD Special Edition Set Review

This holiday themed Scholastic Storybook Treasures® 2-DVD special edition gift set is sure to be a hit with children (and adults) of all ages! It features 12 holiday stories including such classic favorites as The Night Before Christmas and Too Many Tamales. My children and I were thrilled to discover several stories that we were not yet familiar with included with this compilation such as Great Joy, The Clown of God, Seven Candles for Kwanzaa and In the Month of Kislev. My children’s favorites are Merry Christmas, Space Case and The Twelve Days of Christmas. There are also four bonus stories, The Little Drummer Boy, Max’s Christmas, Morris’s Disappearing Bag and Sam and the Lucky Money.

There is over 2 hours of charming holiday tales for children ages 3-8. We personally like to watch 1 story per day throughout the holiday season and it is always such a treat to watch our favorite story books brought “to life” on the screen. I am always impressed that the onscreen illustrations and text are faithful to the book. Not only are Scholastic Storybook Treasures® entertaining but educational too and I really like that it helps to promote pre-reading and early reading skills.

With a wonderful cast of celebrity narration for each of these 12 beloved stories, this special 2-DVD set would make an excellent gift idea or stocking stuffer for the family to enjoy on Christmas Day. It is available for purchase for only $19.99 (includes 2 DVDs) by visiting New Kideo.com.
