When my son was very young, one of his favorite cartoons that I always just adored was Max and Ruby. I honestly had no idea at the time that this adorable show is actually based on some darn cute books by treasured author, Rosemary Wells.

In 1973, Rosemary Wells published "Noisy Nora", about a sweet mouse looking for attention in a big family. In her more than 40 year career, Wells has given children more than 120 books and filled their imaginations with characters like Nora, Max and Ruby. Scholastic Storybook Treasures has recently taken some of the beloved stories and transformed them as only Scholastic can.

On August 3rd, Scholastic introduced 2 new DVDs in their Storybook Treasures library with The Rosemary Wells Collection. Featuring 8 of Wells' best-loved stories, Scholastic's enhanced read-along and comprehension questions, these DVDs are a perfect addition to the Storybook Treasures already amazing list of DVDs. The DVDs also contain Spanish versions of Noisy Nora and Max's Christmas, as well as interviews with Rosemary Wells and a music video.

My kids absolutely love these new DVDs but, my daughter is slightly fanatical about them. Noisy Nora is usually her movie of choice for bedtime and it makes me happy that she's picking something so wholesome and gaining knowledge of reading and reading comprehension without even realizing she is being taught. She absolutely loves Emily's First 100 Days of School, a story on the Noisy Nora disc.

For me and my kids, it just doesn't get any better than what Scholastic Storybook Treasures can offer in terms of animate stories that they can both enjoy and cherish for years to come. These are stories that I read as a child and my children can experience in a whole new way. Every DVD in the Scholastic Storybook Treasures collection is brilliant and perfect for children of so many ages. With school starting all over the country, Scholastic DVDs make sense for all these kids getting excited about learning and reading.
