Mo Willems’ Pigeon and Pals Vol. 1 & 2 DVD Review

Title: Mo Willems’ Pigeon and Pals: Complete Cartoon Collection Volumes 1 & 2

My children and I are huge fans of both Scholastic Storybook Treasures® and the best-selling children’s author, Mo Willems. Therefore, we were very excited to have the opportunity to watch the latest DVD release, Mo Willems’ Pigeon and Pals Complete Cartoon Collection, Volumes 1 & 2.

Featuring six of our favorite children’s picture book stories the characters including Pigeon, Knuffle Bunny, Leonardo the Terrible Monster and Naked Mole Rat came to life on our television screen. These funny and heartwarming tales are sure to delight young children (and adults). We laughed out loud at the antics of Pigeon, Naked Mole Rat and Leonardo the Terrible Monster. Meanwhile I fell in love with the sweet Knuffle Bunny stuffed animal that is cherished by the book’s main character because it reminds me of my youngest son who has his own blankie that is his beloved “best friend”. There is almost two hours of high quality entertainment that is not only fun but educational too.

The Emmy-winning classic stories by Mo Willems included in this collection are:

  • Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! (smart and funny)
  • The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!
  • Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale (if you are like me then your heart will melt with these stories)
  • Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity
  • Leonardo the Terrible Monster (my children couldn’t stop laughing)
  • Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed (prepare to giggle)

I home school our children and frequently utilize Scholastic Storybook Treasures® DVD titles in our curriculum. This DVD series is an excellent resource which encourages pre-reading and early reading skills. For example, my seven year old son will read along with the stories to his younger siblings, my five year old daughter gets excited when she can identify sight words and my four year old son will try to anticipate the words that are coming next in each story.

You can purchase Scholastic Storybook Treasures® Mo Willems’ Pigeon and Pals Vol. 1 & 2 on DVD for only $19.95 at Amazon.com (hurry to check it out because when I wrote this review I found it on sale for a fantastic price!).
