February 15th is Presiden'ts Day and Scholastic Storybook Treasures has released a new dvd for kids who want to learn about America's political life. The new Storybook DVD includes an all-new animated adaptation of Judith St. George's Caldecott Medal-winning book, So You Want to Be President?. This story, narrated by Stockard Channing, gives kids a fun look at anecdotes and trivia surrounding the US presidency. Kids will learn things like six of our former presidents were named James and eight former presidents were born in log-cabins.

Other stories on the DVD include a dog's view of Washington written by Senator Edward M. Kennedy, a book about a girl who dreams of being President, and the story of a girl who wins the vote for women in Wyoming Territory. All the stories included on this Scholastic DVD are both fun and inspiring for all kids.

My children are only 5 and 2. No real knowledge of politics or anything outside the politics of our little family. Still, they thoroughly enjoy this DVD and love to listen to the stories.

All the DVDs from Scholastic Storybook Treasures are absolute instant classics as soon as they are opened. Kids of so many age ranges can truly love and cherish the stories and find that when they are brought to life, it's like hearing it for the first time. My family has enjoyed every Scholastic DVD we've ever watched and this new DVD is no exception. I look forward to many years of enjoyable learning as my kids continue to watch So You Want to Be President? and all the other wonderful collections from Scholastic.
