Best DVD gifts of 2007

Gift ideas for the whole family:
For the preschooler-2nd grader
Scholastic’s Treasury of 100 Storybook Classics is my very favorite DVD series ever for 3-8 year olds, with the very best in children’s books. The visuals, narration, and musical accompaniment are perfectly matched with stories that are funny, wise, inspiring, spooky, and always, always, an invitation to reading. Every one in the series is outstanding family entertainment and for the first time they are available as a set as well.
The latest from Veggie Tales is The Wonderful Wizard of Ha’s, inspired by the story of the prodigal son. Like Dorothy, he learns that there’s no place like home.
Dora’s Christmas Everyone’s favorite explorer gives Santa a gift.
For the 3th-8th grader
The Naked Brothers Band and the companion television series with real-life brothers Nat and Alex Wolff playing superstar versions of themselves is hilarious and charming.
Like Disney superstar Hannah Montana, life is imitating art, with the real-life performers becoming very successful as performing artists. High School Musical 2 continues the phenomenon that was the surprise hit of 2006.

Great. I have a young niece and nephew and never thought about a DVD for them. I can’t make out the first collection posted here with my aging eyes however. Link?
Thanks, Big Dave! I’ve added the link to Treasury of 100 Storybook Classics above.
