My First Scholastic Storybook Treasures DVD Collection

I was that kid, the one who would disappear under the coffee table with a book for hours at a time, according to my mother.  Books were my passion, my refuge.  And I assumed that if I surrounded my own children with books from day one, if we read bedtime stories every night and made reading a priority, they would love books as much as I do.

Tangled will finally hit stores on March 29, but Disney sent us an advanced copy of the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack last week; it’sRead More ...
