With the arrival of fall comes the anticipation of Halloween and this year Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertaiment and Scholastic Storybook Treasures have turned favorite familiar stories into DVDs that are perfect for toddler through elementary ages.
The Halloween Stories Collection ($24.95) from Scholastic Storybook Treasures includes Where the Wild Things Are, A Very Brave Witch, and The Teacher from the Black Lagoon. The story collection features 18 slightly scary stories perfect for this time of year such as By the Light of the Halloween Moon, A Dark, Dark, Tale, Georgie, The Witch in the Cherry Tree, and The Three-Legged Cat and is narrated by stars like Elle Fanning and Calista Flockhart. The collection’s total run time is 2 hours, 55 minutes and includes extras such as author interviews and French and Spanish versions of Where the Wild Things Are! This collection would have been a dream to show my former first grade class in the days leading up to Halloween! Perfect for toddlers, preschoolers, and early elementary ages. Out on DVD October 26.
Upper elementary ages who have enjoyed the Goosebumps series by R.L. Stine will love The Blob That Ate Everyone and Go Eat Worms by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Each of the DVDs feature 3 haunting Goosebumps adventures based on the best selling series.
- The Blob That Ate Everything ($14.98) also features My Hairiest Adventure where Larry Boyd experiences the growth of long thick hair all over his body and disappearing friends! The third story, Piano Lessons Can Be Murder, is about a strange piano teacher who is hired to teach Jerry to play the old piano he found in the basement.
- Go Eat Worms! ($14.98) also includes Bad Hare Day and Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes where two hideous lawn gnomes might be responsible for the eerie sounds coming from the garden late at night. This will make you rethink garden tchotkes! Best for upper elementary ages.
