With as much as we travel, we are always looking for great kids DVDs that my son can watch in the plane or on extended road trips. I’m not promoting letting your kids watch TV on the way to the grocery store- not in any way- but if you and the kids are going to be spending hours in the car, or plane, or airport- have at it!
Entertain Kids While Traveling
Classic kids stories are told on these DVDs, giving you peace of mind and your little one great entertainment- value for everyone. If you are like me and are always off and about, pack these for your next trip. Alternately, they are great for sick days when the little one is all day on the couch and you need a pick me up for them, or as a special treat to watch.
This latest installment in the nationally acclaimed, multi-award-winning Mo Willems DVD line from SCHOLASTIC STORYBOOK TREASURES features three animated adaptations of stories by the New York Times best-selling author: Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late; Knuffle Bunny Free: An Unexpected Diversion; and Edwina, the Dinosaur Who Didn’t Know She Was Extinct. Narrators for these stories include Cher Willems, John Scieszka and Mo Willems himself.
In the title story, it’s getting dark outside, but one stubborn Pigeon is NOT going to bed! Scholastic has named the original story as one of the best books for kindergartners and first graders, and this animated version stays true to the original, best-selling book. As The New York Times says, “Pigeon can stand toe- to-ideographic-toe with Mickey Mouse and Charlie Brown,” and this story is no exception.”

Peter Brown’s beloved children’s book arrives on the small screen as the featured story on the brand-new Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVD, CHILDREN MAKE TERRIBLE PETS…AND MORE STORIES ABOUT FAMILY. In the animated tale, Lucy, a young bear, meets a charming young boy in the forest and brings him home. Her mother, however, has other ideas and cautions her that, “children make terrible pets.” Hilarity ensues as Lucy tries to prove her mother wrong in this modern classic.
Other stories on this comedy-filled compilation include All the World (By Liz Garton Scanlon, illustrated by Marla Frazee, narrated by Joanne Woodward), Crow Call (By Lois Lowry, illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline, narrated by Julia Fein), and Elizabeti’s Doll (By Stephanie Stuve-Bodeen, illustrated by Christy Hale, narrated by Lynn Whitfield).
The original stories have won many awards, including The New York Times Best Illustrated Book, the E.B. White Read-Aloud Picture Book Award and the Black Award for Excellence in Children’s Literature.
