"I first saw this when I was in the first grade (about 15 years ago...) and it still sticks with me to this day. I loved the animation and narration and I've been searching (for what seems like forever) to find out who made it and if it's still available. Thanks, Amazon!"
Even mom loves this dvd....

"After reading these reviews I wanted to watch this and see if I liked it enough to add it to our Scholastic Video Collection. I got it on inter-library loan and I just love it. It's one of my favorite Scholastic Video Collection dvd's.

There are quite a lot of short stories on this one. Swimmy, Frederick, Fish is Fish, It's Mine! and Cornelius are all Leo Lionni stories. They all have similar artwork, which is very colorful and stunning. The animation is great. In Swimmy, some of the fish almost sparkle and are psychedelic-like. I hear lots of oohs and aahs. It's very nice to watch and my 4 year old enjoys the stories.

The bonus stories are Each Peach, Pear, Plum (which is kind of a look and find story with no animation. I'm not too crazy that there is a witch in the story), Hush Little Baby (no animation and it's not read but sung) and my daughter's absolute favorite, Let's Give Kitty a Bath. This one is live-action with no dialog. She could watch this Kitty story over and over and over (the other day she did). I admit, it is quite cute.

After watching this dvd just one time I ordered it on-line immediately. I know we'll enjoy having it as part of our Scholastic collection. A real winner!"

"As a former teacher, I am a HUGE Leo Lionni fan. His stories are all wonderful. We have other videos of this series too and following along with the book and video is fantastic! My 2 year old loves it, this isn't her favorite but I love it and she will continue to enjoy!"
Great Video

"My 2 year old son loves this DVD and decided to bring it to his friend's house. His friend is handicapped and she loves the DVD as well. It is calm and true to the stories and didn't over stimulate them. Both of them watched the DVD and enjoyed the stories and music. I am buying her one so she can have her own copy. GREAT DVD! Highly recommend!"
