Movie Reviews

Great series
S. Kleinman-Dominguez | Fort Lauderdale, FL | 07/19/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Fun, engaging, & educational. I use this in my teaching. It's instructional value is a classic folktale with alternate cultural images. My students learn that folktales/fairytales are part if an oral tradtion and as such teach them about the culture in which the setting is based. This is why they are on the non-fiction or "informative" side of the media center. Really, go into any library you will not find these in the fiction section, they are in 398.2:)

The multimedia aspect helps English language learners, and Robin Hood is a woman in this version---Robinita Hood and her Merry Chicas:)"
Fairy Tales with a twist
Lynn B. Wrzosek | Pittsburgh, PA USA | 01/09/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have used this series several times for a storytime dealing with fairy tales with a twist. Each one I have shown has been excellent-upbeat, good use of star's voice talents and not too off-beat (the children can still tell what the orginal fairy tale is and how this differs from it). I would highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with fratured fairy tales."
