Just in time for the holiday season, Scholastic Storybook Treasures presents more than two magical holiday hours of story time fun with THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS: SPECIAL EDITION, a value-priced 2-disc set featuring a dozen favorite heartwarming holiday chestnuts! The 12 colorfully animated tales included celebrate the winter holiday season, with stories about Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and other family celebrations.

Moore's beloved poem; Santa's visit on a snowy Christmas Eve is beautifully brought to life with animated versions of Jan Brett's exquisite illustrations and festive music. Brett's original book sold more than one million copies. The DVD includes six more holiday stories, including In the Month of Kislev (adapted from a story by Nina Jaffe and narrated by Theodore Bikel), Seven Candles for Kwanzaa (adapted from a story by Andrea Davis Pinckney and Brian Pinckney, narrated by Alfre Woodard), Too Many Tamales (presented both in English and Spanish, and adapted from a story by Gary Soto), The Little Drummer Boy (with animated illustrations by Ezra Jack Keats) and two Rosemary Wells classics, Max's Christmas (narrated by Jenny Agutter and Rex Robbins) and Morris' Disappearing Bag
