I can hardly believe that in one more week, we’ll be saying good bye to winter and hello to Spring. I don’t know about you but me and the kids are certainly excited to see some sunshine again and feel some warmer temperatures! And not but shortly after Easter will be here. My kids are already super excited about egg hunts , gardening, and much more!
Speaking of the Spring time and Easter, I’m pleased to share that Scholastic Storybook Treasures – The Springtime Collection Featuring Max’s Chocolate Chicken is going to be released on March 26th! This is only a few days after the start of Spring and couple of days before Easter. This collection in my opinion would be a great Easter basket addition or a general suprise DVD gift for the kids in honor of Spring!
On this collection, there are 13 Award-Winning Stories on 3 DVDs. Which include my children’s favorite Max’s Chocolate Chicken! In this story Max and Ruby are on an exciting Easter egg hunt to gather the most in hopes to receive a prized chocolate chicken! Other well loved stories included Chicken Little and The Red Hen!
