I recently got to see this DVD along with my kids and I have to say that is good, fun family entertainment. With Scholastic’s Storybook Treasures version of this classic show you are guaranteed to love it. My kids liked it so much they watched it twice in one night. And this DVD has 7 stories on it, they include:

  • The Night Before Christmas – By Clement Clarke Moore, illustrated by Ruth Sanderson, narrated by Anthony Edwards. The stocking were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
  • In the Month of Kislev – By Nina Jaffe, illustrated by Louise August, narrated by Theodore Bikel. A wealthy, arrogant merchant learns the true meaning of Hanukkah when he takes the family of a poor peddler to court for savoring the smell of his family’s potato pancakes.
  • Seven Candles for Kwanzaa – By Andrea Davis Pinkney, illustrated by Brian Pinkney, narrated by Alfre Woodard. This unique holiday celebrates the strength of family, respect for ancestors, community, and gratitude for life’s bounties.
  • Too Many Tamales – By Gary Soto, illustrated by Ed Martinez, narrated by Blanca Camacho. Maria feels very grown-up helping make Christmas dinner, until she realizes that she may have lost her mother’s ring in one of the tamales!

With 3 bonus stories:

  • Max’s Christmas – Written and illustrated by Rosemary Wells, narrated by Jenny Agutter and Rex Robbins. Max is told that he can’t stay up to see Santa, but he sneaks down anyway. Will Santa still come if Max is awake?
  • Morris’s Disappearing Bag – Written and illustrated by Rosemary Wells. Morris thinks his brother and sisters have better Christmas presents. But inside the last box under the tree he finds a magical gift that makes all his troubles disappear.
  • The Little Drummer Boy – By Katherine Davis, Henry Oronati and Harry Simeone, illustrated by Ezra Jack Keats, narrated by John Jennings. Joyful drumming and glowing  illustrations combine to celebrate the nativity.

This DVD features all 7 stories on one DVD Plus: Spanish version of Too Many Tamales
Approx. 73 minutes including extras. For ages 3-9.
