The Scholastic DVD series is almost always reliable for good, clean fun for kids ages 2-5 (or so). The DVDs are also perfect for stoking a healthy amount of nostalgia in moms and dads. Last week two new DVDs hit shelves in the form of the animal themed offerings Harry the Dirty Dog and Make Way for Ducklings. Sound good? Head over to Thingamababy for your chance to win Make Way for Ducklings.
While the Bear prefers the Harry the Dirty Dog collection both DVDs are wonderful to share with any animal loving baby. The Mouse perks up for Angus, the live action short film about a cute black dog, when he shows up on both videos. The bonus story "I Want A Dog" is one of the better segments on any of the Scholastic DVDs we've seen. The story may inspire a puppy-dream in your little one but the tale is very clever in showing the hard work involved with caring for a dog. Oh, and the song is terrific.
Make Way For Ducklings takes Robert McCloskey's original 1969 illustrations and story to introduce this classic to a new generation. Speaking of Make Way For Ducklings, check out this clever Luxurious Make Way For Ducklings New Baby Gift Basket!
Either of these Scholastic DVDs would make a cool stocking stuffer for a toddler or preschooler. Click the picture below to buy from Amazon.com
