VERY BRAVE WITCH, A cover image
I liked the pictures, especially in "A Very Brave Witch." They were actually talking instead of just slide pictures. Some of the stories were funny like how in the three legged cat story, he picked up the cat instead of his hat and how the cat thought the sea was pink and fuzzy. In one story the person went to sea and hid on the boat until the boat left the harbor, and they couldn't get him back then he came out of hiding. That wasn't safe. The stories weren't very scary.
Sometimes it's fun to get a little scared, and Scholastic does a fabulous job of keeping the scariness at an age-appropriate level in "A Very Brave Witch." In a series of fun and entertaining stories, discover a young witch who dares to face her own fears--by meeting a human; find out what to do when there's a frustrated witch in your yard who wants nothing more than to eat the cookies you are baking; and discover how a three-legged cat gets a chance to travel the world. Stories on this DVD such as "Three Robbers" and "Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain" offer great opportunities to discuss with children whether on not it's ever all right to do something you know is wrong even when it helps others. This DVD is a treat for the eyes as classic storybooks come to life, while keeping true to the illustrations from the original books. "A Very Brave Witch" demonstrates excellence in sound and visual quality.
One Halloween, a little witch decides she'd finally like to see what this special night is about. Once she makes a new friend, she discovers trick-or-treating with humans isn't that bad after all. Narrated by Elle Fanning with music by David Mansfield.
