Typing cows….and now ducks?

You’re probably familiar with the work of author Doreen Cronin if you’ve ever read Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type. Her humorous tales, paired with the giggle-worthy illustrations of Betsy Lewin, have attracted the attention of little ones for years (and have even entertained their parents)!

Tomorrow, Scholastic/NewVideo rolls out a brand new Storybook Treasures DVD with more from this best-loved author/illustrator pair. Giggle, Giggle, Quack…and More Stories by Doreen Cronin
brings alive in true Scholastic Storybook Treasure form three more tales in this same series, starring the same crafty (and maybe somewhat stubborn) ducks, chickens, and other farm animals.

Giggle, Giggle, Quack is accompanied by Dooby Dooby Moo and Duck for President. Bonus tales include two stories also by Cronin but illustrated by Harry Bliss: Diary of a Worm and Diary of a Fly. The narration lineup includes singer Randy Travis, actress Abigail Breslin, and actor Alexander Gould. You’ll love the warm yet funny tone brought by Randy Travis’ narration style. I can’t imagine these stories read any other way!

This DVD showcase Giggle, Giggle, Quack…and More Stories by Doreen Cronin includes 84 minutes of nonstop barnyard antics, certainly to “turn over your tickle box.” As an exclusive bonus, the DVD also includes an interview with illustrator Harry Bliss and Spanish versions of “Giggle, Giggle, Quack” and “Duck for President.”

You can buy it tomorrow wherever your favorite Scholastic videos are sold, or order it from Scholastic/NewVideo for $14.95. (Remember — save 10% at checkout if you enter musereviews before you complete your total purchase!)
