The Caldecott Medal was named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott, and it is awarded annually by the American Library Association, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children.  On November 22, Scholastic Storybook Treasures will pay homage to this prestigious award with CALDECOTT FAVORITES, a 3-disc set featuring timeless adaptations of some of the 20th Century’s best loved children’s literature.

My Thoughts

The Caldecott Favorites features over three hours on a 3-DVD Collection for you and your children. Why not, make family time enjoyable while watching classic favorites: The Ugly Duckling, The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge. Each story features the popular read-along option which can aid in teaching your child how to read. My daughter's reading skills have improved tremendously with the read-along feature.
