Cuddle up with your little ones for an evening of stories and classic holiday tales about Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa with The Night Before Christmas Special Edition Gift Set. This gift set is meant to be enjoyed through the season, with a mug of hot chocolate in hand! Featuring 12 tales on 2 DVD’s, you can read along with your children, or just enjoy the festive music and narration!
The title tale, based on Clement C. Moore’s timeless poem, has been adapted from Ruth Sanderson’s exquisitely illustrated book. Featuring narration by Anthony Edwards, this version is sure to warm the cockles of any grinch’s heart! Among the 11 additional colorfully animated stories found on this 2-DVD gift set—narrated by celebrities such as Jane Curtin and Christopher Lloyd — are: In the Month of Kislev (adapted from a story by Nina Jaffe and narrated by Theodore Bikel), Seven Candles for Kwanzaa, (adapted from a story by Andrea Davis Pinkney and Brian Pinkney, narrated by Alfre Woodard), Too Many Tamales (presented both in English and Spanish), and four bonus stories featuring Ezra Jack Keats’ The Little Drummer Boy, Sam and the Lucky Money, and two Rosemary Wells classics, Max’s Christmas and Morris’ Disappearing Bag.
What “Mom” loves about Scholastic Storybook Treasures is that your child’s books really come to life! If you have some of the books, it is great to turn the pages and read along with the narrator for your child’s enrichment.
The Night Before Christmas Special Edition Gift Set can be found at Amazon.com, just in time for December!
