My kids are quite the fans of best selling author Mo Willems. There’s just something about his stories that grasp not only my children’s attention but my own as well. So we were excited when we learned that Scholastic’s recently released Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late and more stories by Mo Willems into their SCHOLASTIC STORYBOOK TREASURES™ DVD line!

On the DVD collection Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late and more stories by Mo Willems, there are three fun filled tales based off Mo’s books! It’s always so much to see classic books loved by young and old brought to like on the screen! These were done so well, in my opinion. Children will not only have so much fun watching the stories on screen but they’ll be learning the importance of respect, growing up, and problem solving. Both my children ages 5 & 2 have enjoyed this collection immensely and currently have not tired of watching or asking for it again and again.

The Stories

DON’T LET THE PIGEON STAY UP LATE! (Featuring the voices of Mo Willems and John Scieszka) It’s getting dark out, but one stubborn Pigeon is NOT going to bed! Will you let him stay up late?

KNUFFLE BUNNY FREE: AN UNEXPECTED DIVERSION (Featuring the voices of Trixie, Cher and Mo Willems) Trixie and her family set off on a fantastic trip to visit her grandparents – in Holland! But it seems Knuffle Bunny has different plans.

EDWINA, THE DINOSAUR WHO DIDN’T KNOW SHE WAS EXTINCT (Featuring the voices of Cher and Mo Willems) Everyone loves Edwina, except the class know-it-all, who tries to convince everyone that dinosaurs are extinct.

Narrators for these stories include Cher Willems, John Scieszka and Mo Willems himself. Bonuses on the DVD include an Interview with Mo Willems; Recipe for Edwina’s Chocolate Chip Cookies; Read-Along Function. Approximate run time is 31 minutes + extras.

Overall, we loved this DVD collection! It’s fun, my children have told me the Pigeon is quite fun to watch and that they certainly enjoyed the story of the Knuffle Bunny quite a bit. It’s no suprise that Mo’s stories have won awards since in our house the stories are loved by kids and their parents! Highest of recommendations!
