Classics a family will enjoy

"What a great compilation! The books are terrific and to have them come to life on screen is magical for our children and us!"
Intelligent, old-fashioned storytelling for little kids

(4 out of 5 stars)

"As with many Scholastic Books video adaptations, this is a fairly solid offering -- intelligent, well-produced and suitable for smaller children.

This DVD collection gathers video versions of several of Robert McCloskey's classic children's tales, notably "Make Way For Ducklings" and "Blueberries For Sal," which were written in the 1940s and '50s, and adapted into short films in the late '60s. The format is simple, but effective. The films are not animated: the original text is read aloud (nicely, in resonant male voices) as a camera pans across the original artwork. Although the production values are simple, they are well suited to the stories, and the overall effect is rather quaint, but not so much that modern kids won't still get a lot out of them. Bonus material includes short adaptations of "Lentil" and "Burt Dow, Deep Water Man." Wish they'd had time to do "One Morning In Maine" as well."
