Scholastic Introduces Two New Storybook Treasures

scholasticScholastic will release two new DVDs from the award-winning Scholastic Storybook Treasures line—Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late and Children Make Terrible Pets.

Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late features three animated adaptations of stories by author Mo Willems. Narrators for these stories include Cher Willems, John Scieszka, and Mo Willems himself. Features on the Don’t Let The Pigeon Stay Up Late DVD include a read-along function, an interview with Mo Willems, and the recipe for Edwina’s chocolate chip cookies .

Peter Brown’s beloved children’s book also arrives on the small screen as the featured story in Children Make Terrible Pets.

Lucy then sets out to prove her mother wrong.
