 My Thoughts...

My family and I have purchased wonderful books from Scholastic for over a decade. We are a homeschool family and we often bought books to use in our homeschool library. My four year old daughter now gets to read all the books that we have collected since the early 1990's. lol 


We were so excited to be allowed to review these wonderful award-winning classic stories on DVD. As a family, we have all huddled together to watch them. We love it! I believe these DVD's would make a great gift for any family and for any occasion. 



The winner is ... pulled your number out of a hat:
