Halloween is almost upon us and we’ve been having fun reading and watching all sorts of spooky tales with the kids and without! Since my daughter is still pretty young we are keeping the really creepy and frightening stuff at bay until she is old enough not to become afraid of it. And with that being said we’ve been enjoying and would like to recommend the Scholastic Storybook Treasure DVD collections of Halloween stories!
What’s been in our DVD player for the past week has been Teeny Tiny and the Witch Woman…and more spooky Halloween stories! These stories are quite kid-friendly and teach children important character skills such as stories about self esteem and creativity. Not to forget to also mention how all the Scholastic Storybook Treasure DVDs help improve reading skills with the read along feature.
Stories in this collection…
