SCHOLASTIC STORYBOOK TREASURES™ PRESENTS A NEW DVD CELEBRATING ASIAN CULTURE
Get ready to learn about some of Asian culture’s best loved tales, Scholastic Storybook Treasures™ releases STONE SOUP…AND OTHER STORIES FROM THE ASIAN TRADITION. Highlighted by author/illustrator Jon J. Muth’s award-winning take on “Stone Soup”, the new DVD also features three other classic tales, as well as a Read-Along function which highlights the words as they are spoken, allowing young viewers to follow along with the narrators.
“Stone Soup” is a classic folktale about the strength people possess when they work together. The three other stories on the DVD include “The Five Chinese Brothers”, “Lon Po Po: A Red-Riding Hood Story from China”, and “Stonecutter”. These colorfully animated adaptations of classic stories feature celebrity narration by B.D. Wong (Law and Order: SVU).
The DVD also includes a behind-the-scenes interview with Jon J. Muth, the award-winning author/illustrator of “Stone Soup”, “The Three Questions” and other popular stories for kids. Muth also illustrated cards for Magic: The Gathering.
I love that one of my favorite childhood stories, The Five Chinese Brothers is included on this DVD to share with my little ones.
