Thank you Scholastic for sponsoring today’s post.
Just in time to get kids back-to-school and prepared for the classroom in the most enjoyable way come two new DVDs from the award-winning and family favorite Scholastic Storybook Treasures line.
About Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late
This latest installment in the nationally acclaimed, multi-award-winning Mo Willems DVD line from SCHOLASTIC STORYBOOK TREASURES™ features three animated adaptations of stories by the New York Times best-selling author: Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late; Knuffle Bunny Free: An Unexpected Diversion; and Edwina, the Dinosaur Who Didn’t Know She Was Extinct. Narrators for these stories include Cher Willems, John Scieszka and Mo Willems himself.
In the title story, it’s getting dark outside, but one stubborn Pigeon is NOT going to bed! Scholastic has named the original story as one of the best books for kindergartners and first graders, and this animated version stays true to the original, best-selling book. As The New York Times says, “Pigeon can stand toe- to-ideographic-toe with Mickey Mouse and Charlie Brown,” and this story is no exception.”

About Children Make Terrible Pets
Peter Brown’s beloved children’s book arrives on the small screen as the featured story on the brand-new Scholastic Storybook Treasures™ DVD, CHILDREN MAKE TERRIBLE PETS…AND MORE STORIES ABOUT FAMILY. In the animated tale, Lucy, a young bear, meets a charming young boy in the forest and brings him home. Her mother, however, has other ideas and cautions her that, “children make terrible pets.” Hilarity ensues as Lucy tries to prove her mother wrong in this modern classic.
Other stories on this comedy-filled compilation include All the World (By Liz Garton Scanlon, illustrated by Marla Frazee, narrated by Joanne Woodward), Crow Call (By Lois Lowry, illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline, narrated by Julia Fein), and Elizabeti’s Doll (By Stephanie Stuve-Bodeen, illustrated by Christy Hale, narrated by Lynn Whitfield).
The original stories have won many awards, including The New York Times Best Illustrated Book, the E.B. White Read-Aloud Picture Book Award and the Black Award for Excellence in Children’s Literature.
