I’d like to thank Janet from Loving Heart Designs for guest reviewing this DVD set on my blog.
Her are her thoughts…
My family and I have always been fans of Scholastic. We have been homeschooling ever since 1989 and we have included many products from Scholastic in our curriculum and homeschool library. Now, we can enjoy the read-along series by Scholatic Storybook Treasures.
My four-year-old enjoys watching and listening to "The Wheels on the Bus" DVD's and CD. Included in this kit is a 34 page activity book with mazes, matching, dot-to-dots and more. This is a wonderful product to include over the summer vacation. Travel can be boring for the little ones and the Sing-Along Travel Kit will make long or short trips more fun. The whole family can get in on the fun with the fun songs like "The Wheels on the Bus", "Dem Bones", "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" and many other fantastic songs.
This past month we went to the mountains and rented a home on the lake. I would have loved to have the travel kit for the more quieter moments on our vacation, especially when it rained.
