PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Families hungry for something to sink their teeth into will have their appetites sated when Scholastic Storybook Treasures™ releases an all new DVD featuring delectable tales about food with THE RED HEN…AND MORE COOKING STORIES!  Highlighted by the eye-popping take on the story of a red hen and her adventures in baking by the Caldecott Award winning father-daughter team of Ed Emberley and Rebecca Emberley, the brand new DVD also features other stories about cooking including “Bread Comes to Life”, a live action film narrated by Lily Tomlin, Jane Yolen’s modern day classic “How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food?” and the hilarious tale of pastry run amok in “Arnie the Doughnut”, narrated by Michael McKean.

In the Emberley’s sparkling version of a classic tale, Red Hen finds a recipe for a Simply Splendid Cake and asks her friends the cat, the rat, and the frog to help with the preparations. But it seems as though her friends want no part in the cake until it’s ready to eat. Will they decide to pitch in, or let Red Hen do all of the hard work?  Find out in this highly enjoyable adaptation, which is joined by three other classic tales, as well as a Read-Along function which highlights the words as they are spoken, allowing young viewers to follow along with the narrators, who include such celebs as Tomlin (“Desperate Housewives”, “The Magic School Bus”) and McKean (“Homeland”, Spinal Tap, “Laverne and Shirley”).

My Thoughts

Scholastics has put together a wonderful DVD  about cooking featuring The Red Hen. The Red Hen has always been one of my all-time favorite stories. Even so, my daughter's favorite is "Bread Comes to Life". She loves bread.. Who doesn't love bread? This live action film is fun to watch and teaches lots about the life cycle of bread. And for more comical stories check out the featured story "The Red Hen", "How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food? and Arnie the Doughnut

Grab your apron because The Red Hen has her own cooking show now. I am kidding but you can follow along with this easy recipe hosted by The Red Hen called Simply Splendid Cake. This is one recipe we will have to test out soon. Enjoy!
