Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVD Set
Stories About African American Heritage featuring MARCH ON!
Release date 1/15/13
February is set aside as a special month to celebrate African American History – not just a day, but a whole month! It’s important to understand where we have been and where we are heading. I’m always so inspired when I hear stories of the people who shaped our history – both the famous people and the ordinary citizens who made a difference.
This DVD box set includes 13 Read-Along stories on 3 themed DVDs. They are recommended for children ages 4-10 and will enhance the lessons your children are probably studying in school this month. If you homeschool, these will serve as a great addition to your curriculum as well.

Each story feels as if the book has been brought to life. You still get to see the words and original illustrations, but there is added sound and motion. They don’t just retell the stories – they present them in a way that enhances the reading experience. They are great for visual and auditory learners.
Scholastic has assembled a star-studded cast to read the books. You’ll recognize many of the voices – Samuel L. Jackson, James Earl Jones, Phylicia Rashad, Forest Whitaker and others.
