Scholastic Storybook Treasures released this week another terrific box set of DVDs, this time soothing tales for bedtime: Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories. Wouldn’t this be a thoughtful gift for new parents? After all, anything to help little ones settle down at bedtime would be a welcome treat.

Every night you or your child could pick out one of the 28 classic sleepytime stories within this four-DVD box set. There are favorite stories held within this collection such as:

- Curious George Rides a Bike
- Corduroy
- I Love You Like Crazy Cakes
- Harold and the Purple Crayon
- The Napping House

All combined, the stories included within this set have won 10 awards, including the Caldecott Medal and the ALA Notable Video Award. With melodic words and soothing illustrations gently brought to live through animation, this set has so many wonderful winners that you can share together, cuddling together as the day winds down.

Tiny tots as well as older children will all find a story (or ten) that they grow to love and ask to watch again and again. This DVD set will embellish your already cherished nightly book reading routine….seeing as books are still read here word for word, jumping off the screen in spoken word by notable people such as Anthony Edwards, Mia Farrow, and the ever-popular James Earl Jones.

The Scholastic Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories retails for just $29.95. You can purchase it wherever your favorite DVDs are sold or directly from NewVideo’s online store. (AND! If you order it online, just enter the promotional code ” musereviews ” at checkout for 10% off your total order!)

Win it! Thanks to Scholastic/NewVideo, I can offer a Scholastic Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories to you, one of my readers! Just tell me, in a comment below, which of the stories included in this box set your children would enjoy the most. I’ll close the contest next Sunday, October 11th, 2009 at 11pm EST. Sorry; US entries only. Good luck!


Congratulations to the winner, #3, Katrina!
