What a great new collection offered from The Scholastic Storybook Treasures ! I believe it’s best suited for children ages 4-8 who have a love for or are eager to learn more about music and musicians through educationally fun stories!
This collection is ideal for classroom or home use! It offers 3 DVDs with 15 stories all together totaling 2 hours and 47 minutes of running time. All the stories have the read along features and on the Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin dvd there’s a interview with the art author/illustrator Patrick McDonnell. I always love getting to know more about the person behind the story and it would be great if you were having your child, children, or classroom write a report on the story featured and author.
If you are interested in teaching your child other languages it would please you to know that there are several stories in this collection also translated in Spanish. Scholastic Storybook Treasures fromYoung Artist Collection featuring Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin collection supports and teaches children the importance of creativity, self confidence, art, and appreciation!
I highly recommend this DVD set and it would be perfect to get now to start incorporating into the 2011 school year!
