I have been looking for a way to explain Thanksgiving to my children this year. While I love the cute stories about turkeys, I was hoping to provide my sons with a more meaningful and historical understanding of this American holiday.
The Scholastic Storybook Treasures Giving Thanks…And More Stories to Celebrate American Heritage is a great way to introduce American history to children. This DVD includes four stories “Lincoln & Douglass: An American Friendship” which is narrated by Danny Glover, “Giving Thanks” narrated by native American Mohawk leader Chief Jake Swamp, “Hiawatha” and “The Pilgrims of Plymouth.” The collection of stories provides an excellent overview of early America from a variety of cultural perspectives.
The DVD also has an innovative Read Along Function that encourages early literacy skills. These stories are interesting and educational, and help to provide a deeper understanding of America and its traditions.
This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the winner: Vanessa !
