13 award-winning stories are featured on three discs, headlined by Rosemary Wells’ delightful Easter-themed tale “Max’s Chocolate Chicken”.  Kids are sure to grin from ear to ear as the fun-loving bunnies Max and Ruby – who can currently be seen on Nick Jr. -- hunt for Easter eggs with hilarious results, or as a crazy-eyed chicken and all his panicked friends try to run away from a falling sky in Ed Emberley’s and Rebecca Emberley’s delightful “Chicken Little”.  
 Families can also learn a fun baking recipe for splendid cake with “The Red Hen”!   Featuring Scholastic’s innovative Read-Along captioning, celebrity narration including Lily Tomlin, Randy Travis, Michael McKean, and more, and an Easter basket-full of bonuses including interviews with Rosemary Wells and Ed Emberley and Rebecca Emberley, THE SPRINGTIME COLLECTION blossoms with fun!

 I love how my little ones can see books come to life on the screen! Rosemany Wells and her timeless Max stories! He and his trouble making skills:) Bless his heart!The Read along captioning can be off or on for your readers who want to try to join in, or without for the toddlers. Because of the length of this collection, you can easily put in one story in between doing other activities. There are clear breaks for watching. The bonus material is fun to see as well, the interviews and visits. Fun to see the face behind the characters. Geared for ages 2-7, this would be a fantastic collection for this spring!
