Movie Reviews

Fantastic adaptation of Strega Nona!
R. Knox | Allentown, PA | 09/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Because my son (who is actually only 15 months old, much younger than the age recommendation) loves the Scholastic Where the Wild Things Are DVD, we decided to try another Scholastic Video. We both couldn't be more pleased. The story is simply animated and is accompanied by charming music. The narrator's voice is perfect and the adaptation of the story very close to the original. Joseph Had a Little Overcoat is also well done, but Stone Soup, because of the sparse illustrations (just black line drawings with a little red) and lack of animation, is not quite as enjoyable. I look forward to more DVDs from this collection."
DVD misses the best part of the book

"I read the Stega Nona series to my 10 year old when he was little and relished sharing it again with my 3-year-old. The first book, Strega Nona, was the best of the series and when we saw this DVD adaptation, we were very excited to watch. However, the story misses singing or even reading the "pasta pot" song. This was the best part of our reading and my kids enjoyed singing it with me during story hour. The video brings to life a wonderful story, but misses our favorite part of the book. Great alternative to Dora, but will not replace story time."
Great DVD, higly recommend it!

"My 3.5-year-old daughter loves this DVD. It is well done and you really can't go wrong with such a great book to begin with."
