This new DVD in the SCHOLASTIC STORYBOOK TREASURES™ collection is perfect for kids as they wind down the school year, get ready for camp and look forward to spending the summertime with friends. BINK & GOLLIE... AND MORE STORIES ABOUT FRIENDSHIP is an all-new compilation headlined by "Bink & Gollie", from Kate DiCamillo, the Newbery Medal-winning author of Because of Winn Dixie and The Tale of Despereaux and Alison McGhee. A story of two very different girls who are the best of friends, Bink and Gollie don't agree on anything, but they learn ways to keep their friendship going strong. The original story for early readers, illustrated by Tony Fucile, won the Theodore Geisel Award, and a new book in the series "Bink & Gollie: Best Friends Forever" is available from Candlewick Press this spring.
Three other stories about friendship are also included in this fun-packed video:
· "A Sick Day for Amos Mcgee" (by Philip C. Stead, illustrated by Erin E. Stead, narrated by David de Vries) - Amos receives unexpected guests from the zoo when he's home with the sniffles and sneezes.
· "The Other Side" (by Jacqueline Woodson, illustrated by E.B. Lewis, narrated by Toshi Widoff-Woodson) - A friendship develops between two kids from opposite sides of a segregated town.
· "Cat and Canary" (written and illustrated by Michael Foreman) - Cat's unlikely friend Canary shows him a great time when his master is away at work.
