5.0 out of 5 stars Scholastic knows something that I don't June 7 2006
By Adh - Published on Amazon.com
I was looking for a few sing-along DVDs for my 28 month old son and picked this one up along with a few others.

The first one I put in was a Sesame Street, Sing Yourself Silly. He screamed and threw a tantrum crying for his Math Circus DVD. Didnt go over so well. Glutten for punishment, I put this DVD in instead of his Math Circus.

When it came on, the introduction was cute, and I thought, this is kind of nice. Then the Wheels on the Bus came on. And the people and the drawings made it look like some sort of psychodelic vision. I thought it was creepy. Plus the song was kind of slow and I was disappointed becuase I thought it would be something he could sing along with and this was way more drawn out. Thinking this was a disaster I looked over at my son who, through tear stained eyes, said:


Um, he loved it. Creepy people and all. He gets all excited by various parts and wants to watch it over and over again. He is even singing along. Now, Im so used to it, I kind of dig the singing (which is more bluesy or something, not sing songy kiddish) and I like it too.

Having not learned my lesson, I was again shocked at the Dem Bones being all these dead skeletons that appeared to have been drawn by a (not particularly talented) five year old, but once again, he thought it was great (wasnt scared) and starting singing to that one too (and pointing out the various parts on him, which impressed me he could make the connection to the freaky skeletons and himself). He asks for this DVD all the time now.

So Scholastic obviously knows something I dont and based on my son's reaction, I have no choice but to give this five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only DVD you will ever need Jan. 25 2007
By Teresa Lambert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wow, what a surprise this DVD was. Not only did it start with my daughters favorite song and story " The Wheels on the bus" but the list went on and on. 'Dem Bones, Over in the Meadow, There was and Old Lady Who swallowed a fly. Then the stories..."I Want a Dog" is so cute. My daughter, 2 1/2 copies the whole DVD and gets better every day. And my son 6 loves the DVD just as much. They are not fighting over which DVD to choose and I finally have a break from Barney.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Nov. 17 2006
By Kari Rabie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was fearful when I purchased my first Scholastic Video that the interpretations would somehow sully the original books for my son, or alter their meaning. The animation, the songs, the voices are all consistent with the feelings of the original books. The books that are included in this collections are all books I would want in my son's library, and I have, in fact, purchased some of them after viewing the videos. Each dvd includes about 3 stories, and usually at least two 'extras'. I would recommend that anyone interested in this collection invest in the 27 DVD bundle. However, there are more DVD's to purchase.

The Wheels On The Bus is wonderful, so is Over in the Meadow, Dem Bones, and There was an Old Lady (come on, Burl Ives!) Not crazy about I Want A Dog. But wonderful music, and animation.

Received as a gift and currently looking for more titles in the scholastic collection. Dem Bones had my daughter dancing. Over in the meadow just made you feel good about the world. Highly recommend. All the stories/music were fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another favorite Scholastic DVD Jan. 15 2008
By Mom Of Many Munchkins - Published on Amazon.com
We own over 20 Scholastic Video dvd's and The Wheels on the Bus is one of our favorites. We first got it from the library and my daughter just loved it. She was so thrilled when I bought in on-line. This dvd has 6 stories. The main 4 stories are sung. The first extra story (I Want A Dog) is read, but it does have a song a couple of times in it. The last story is just read; no songs at all.

The Wheels on the Bus is based on the book by Paul Zelinsky. When my oldest daughter, now 15, was little we had this book. It's a really neat moving parts book. I am now looking for it for my 4 year old. The story on the dvd is animated and just like the pictures in the book.

Dem Bones is kind of educational; at the end a narrators voice talks about all the bones of the skeleton and then the song is sung again. This one is also animated.

Over in the Meadow is my favorite and it's so cute to hear my daughter try to sing along. I like the song/melody so much that I ordered the book by the same author and illustrator (we'll be able to sing it and see the pictures without always having to put the dvd in). This story, on the dvd, has very little animation; mostly just still shots of the pictures from the book.

I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly is an old one from 1964; before I was born. The animation is the old cartoonish style. This is sung by Burl Ives. It's not one of my favorites....but I've never been overly crazy about that story anyway.

I Want a Dog is another one of my favorites on this dvd. There is a song in the story and it's great. I find myself singing it throughout the day after we've watched it (boy, do I gotta get out, or what??). It is a very catchy song. This has cute animation and is very colorful. I think I'll have to try to find this book also to add to our collection.

The Chinese Violin is probably my least favorite on this dvd, only because I'm not crazy with the illustrations. This is animated also. The violin is totally different than the typical violin that you might think of, so that always sparks my child to tell me that it's not a real violin (to which, of course, I have to explain that it's just a different kind). The voice, I believe, is a child. He sounds like an Asian boy and I do like the voice of the narrator...it goes very well with the story. It is a bit long and my daughter often doesn't sit through it.

Overall, I think this dvd is a great one to add to your collection. I know it will be a favorite with us for a long time. You can also put the words on the screen so you can sing along, which is nice. Some of our other favorite Scholastic dvd's are Chrysanthemum, Swimmy, Harry the Dirty Dog, and Bark George.
