Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVDs Review: My First Collection Vol. 2 Featuring Spoon

Scholastic just seems to know what kids like, and The My First Collection Vol. 2 Featuring Spoon is another hit.  This DVD set includes 3 discs featuring: Spoon, Dem Bones, and That New Animal.  There are 13 stories total with a run time of 127 minutes (plus extras).  It is recommended for ages 2-6; however, I think the Dem Bones songs are great for older kids as well.

Here is what you get with this set:

Disc #-Spoon: This disc is perfect for ages 2-4
  • -Spoon: The cute tale about learning to appreciate YOU (contains highlighted text feature)
  • -A Boy, A Dog and A Frog: Cute video (not cartoon) about a young boy and his dog trying to catch a frog. No words, just cute music.
  • -Otto Runs For President: Still storybook images shown with highlighted text feature
  • -Bugs! Bugs! Bugs!: Lots of color in this one. Still images and highlighted text.

Disc #2-Dem Bones: Amazing disc that is perfect for anatomy lessons (Dem Bones) and history lessons (Erie Canal, dinosaur bones). Good for ages 4 and up.
  • -Dem Bones: LOVE this one! Great song with highlighted words.  The parts of the body are colored red on the skeletons when the song talks about them.  We learned a lot of new facts about our bones!
  • -Hush Little Baby: Still photos from the original storybook with highlighted text as it is sung (twice).
  • -Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night: Still photos and highlighted text.  A little morbid considering the fox is going hunting...so just be aware.
  • -Dinosaur Bones: Great colorful images and highlighted text that will teach your little one all about dinosaur bones and paleontologists!
  • -The Erie Canal: This story starts out with a quick history lesson (and real life photos) of the creation of the Erie Canal.  Then, the story transitions into still images (cartoons) and a song about the Erie Canal that the kids really enjoyed!

Disc #3-That New Animal: Preschooler Oldies but Goodies
  • -That New Animal: Still pictures and highlighted text about a dog who is trying to figure out why this new animal is here (aka: the baby)!
  • -I Love You Like Crazy Cakes: Adorable old story with highlighted text.
  • -Smile For Auntie:  Very old images with highlighted text.  Not really a family favorite.
  • -Blueberries For Sal:  One of my favorite old stories complete with highlighted text.

Scholastic Storybook Treasures: My First Collection Vol. 2 featuring Spoon truly has some amazing stories and songs on it that are for any age! The publisher recommends these discs for ages 2-6; however, with the songs on the parts of the body, and the Erie Canal, this collection could be a teacher's dream!  I highly recommend this set, so buy yours today:
