Scholastic Election DVD

Scholastic Election DVD
With the upcoming election, it's the perfect time to watch this Scholastic Storybook Treasures, "So You Want To Be President? ... and more stories to celebrate American history".   This DVD is great for children ages 5+. Let me give you information about this DVD and then you can enter to win a copy!


The following is from a press release:
  
"Mark Your Ballot! And Introduce Kids to the Electoral Process with Scholastic Storybook Treasures 

The award-winning SCHOLASTIC STORYBOOK TREASURES series (www.newkideo.com) offers videos that are perfect to entertain and inform future citizens. These two acclaimed DVDs teach kids about American history and the electoral process via great storytelling and lively narration and animation. 

So You Want To Be President? ... and More Stories To Celebrate American History

This DVD includes an animated adaptation of Judith St. George’s Caldecott Medal-winning book, narrated by Emmy® Award-winning actress Stockard Channing, and other stories about America’s vibrant political life (available now from various retailers, $14.95srp). This lighthearted roundup of anecdotes and trivia could be a guide for aspiring presidential candidates: for example, it might boost your odds of being elected if your name is James (the moniker of six former presidents) or if your place of birth was a humble dwelling (“You probably weren't born in a log cabin. That’s too bad. People are crazy about log-cabin Presidents. They elected eight”). 

Additional stories include the adaptation of My Senator and Me: A Dog’s Eye View of Washington D.C., a tail-waggingly funny story written by the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy; Madam President, based on the witty book about a girl who dreams of occupying the Oval Office, written and illustrated by Lane Smith; and I Could Do That! Esther Morris Gets Women the Vote, based on the book by Linda Arms White. The last story tells how one girl's gumption propels her through a life filled with challenges until, in 1869, she wins the vote for women in Wyoming Territory.
