Scholastic will release two new additions to its highly successful and family favorite Storybook Treasures collection this Summer.
Don’t Let The Pigeon Stay Up Late!…and more stories by Mo Willems will be released Tuesday, August 27th alongside Children Make Terrible Pets…and more stories about family. Both DVD sets will include the standard Read-a-long feature, allowing children to read the story while they listen to it at the same time. They will both also include author interviews. And as an added bonus Don’t Let The Pigeon Stay Up Late!…and more stories by Mo Willems will include a recipe for Edwina’s Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Edwina’s Chocolate Chip Cookies take center stage in the story of Edwina, The Dinosaur Who Didn’t Know She Was Extinct. It’s just one of the stories included in first collection of the pair. Parents, teachers, and kids will also get to enjoy in this collection, Knuffle Bunny Free: An Unexpected Diversion, and the collection’s lead story. Mo Willems and Cher Willems both serve as narrators for these stories along with John Sczieska.
Children Make Terrible Pets…and more stories about family is the second release in the pair from Scholastic, New Video and New Kideo. This compilation’s lead story is a funny but cautionary tale for little ones. It tells the story of a young female bear that brings home a little boy one day and wants to keep the boy as a pet. The little bear is warned by her mother that “children make terrible pets.” But the little bear, named Lucy, sets out to disprove her mother and show that she can be a good “pet” owner to the little boy. The result will have parents, teachers, and children laughing. This story is joined by the companion stories, All The World, Crow Call, and Elizabeth’s Doll. Authors Peter Brown, the man behind Children Make Terrible Pets and Lois Lowry, author of Crow Call, are interviewed in this set’s bonus features as is illustrator Marla Frazee. Frazee is the illustrator behind the book, All The World.
