    Amazing! Creative! Inspiring!

    What a wonderful idea this book/DVD kit is! My kids, ages 6 and 10 were drawn in and mesmerized with the DVD and book, too. The kids in the DVD are dressed in character to go along with their individual stories as they read their story to you on the DVD. This aspect just adds an extra element to reading a book for a child and definitely makes reading more desirable for a child. My kids love it and watch over and over which is inspiring them to be little writers. As a mom, this is just fantastic!! I highly recommend this to those who want to give budding writers inspiration, to those who hate to read and everyone in between. Definitely an excellent tool for tutors, schools and home. Give it as a gift!!!!
