Friday Family Film Fest Merry Christmas Splat *Review & Giveaway

 We really love these Scholastic Treasures and were thrilled to see a Winter one available!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, SPLAT (Written and illustrated by Rob Scotton, narrated by John Keating) Splat is trying hard to be good before Santa’s arrival so he can get all the presents he’s dreamed of on Christmas day!

FLETCHER AND THE SNOWFLAKE CHRISTMAS (By Julia Rawlinson, illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke, narrated by Katherine Kellgren) It’s Christmas Eve and Fletcher wonders how Santa will find his burrow through all the snow.

SNOWFLAKE BENTLEY (By Jacqueline Briggs Martin, illustrated by Mary Azarian, narrated by Sean Astin) This is the story of Willie Bentley, who loved and learned all about snowflakes.
This is a Five in a Row book as well, which we have loved using over the years. We will be 'rowing' this book this winter and so excited that the kids will be able to rewatch this gorgeous 'book' on tv.

OWL MOON (Written and narrated by Jane Yolen, illustrated by John Schoenherr) A girl and her father search the moonlit woods for the Great Horned Owl.
This also is a Five in a Row story that we have used in our homeschool group. This book is outstanding for unit studies and I love how it comes to life on the screen!

 Two of the stories are specific to Christmas, and the other two are great for Winter stories. Not that my kids refuse to watch Christmas shows other than in December! They would watch them all winter I am pretty sure. Scat is a fun cat and we will be looking at our local library for other great stories with Scat in them!
