I know I'm not a "deals" blog, and I don't plan on turning into one. (there are too many other good ones out there). However, when I was just doing some Christmas shopping on Amazon I came across this awesome deal on this Scholastic DVD Collection. I bought my kids an earlier version of this collection with many of the same stories a few years ago and they LOVED it. I liked that so many of our favorite books and authors were now in video form ~ we could read the actual stories and then when they wanted to watch a DVD, they could watch an animated version too. The "animation" varies from story to story ~ sometimes it was just panning across the printed page, sometimes the characters on the page moved a bit, sometimes it was fully animated ~ but they liked them all just the same. Oh, and many of the stories had a "read-along" option too where the text was displayed along with the narration (great practice for beginning readers!)
Anyway, Amazon now has it on sale for 66% off, making the whole collection just $33.99!! For 17 DVD's and 100 stories, that's a great bargain for your kids or classroom!! I know Amazon prices will fluctuate a bit, but hopefully it'll stay this price for a while so others can grab the deal.
Okay, enough of my bargain tips I'll be back later on today with a cute Christmas shirt my kids made last year.
