Weston Woods Animated Picture Books

“It is our role at Weston Woods to create audiovisual adaptations that are faithful reflections of the books themselves. We will seek the best books from all over the world and adapt them in such a way as to preserve the integrity of the original. By doing so, we will help children discover the riches that are trapped between the covers of the books and motivate them to want to read for themselves. We believe that a child who wants to read will easily learn to read, and we believe that a child without reading problems will be a child without learning problems.”

  • Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (K-2) – In this lively alphabet rhyme, all the letters of the alphabet race each other up the coconut tree.
  • If You Made a Million by David M. Schwartz – covers coins, interest, checks, borrowing
  • Martin’s Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (K-2) – Based on the classic children’s book by Doreen Rappaport. Using quotes from some of his beloved speeches, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., comes to life in stunning collage art and vibrant watercolor paintings in this profound and important biography about beliefs and dreams and following one’s heart.
  • The Three Little Pigs (K-2) – The classic story, with a contemporary bend, of three little pigs threatened by a hungry wolf whose favorite food is pig.
  • Antarctic Antics (K-2, 3-5) – Imagine growing up in a colony of emperor penguins on the iciest continent on earth. Come visit Antarctica–but you’d better wear your park-tica to celebrate the slips and slides and swims and glides of these delightful creatures in poetry and song.
  • The Night Before Christmas (K-2) – The story of Santa’s visit on a snowy Christmas Eve is beautifully brought to life with exquisite illustrations and festive music
  • Johnny Appleseed (K-2) – A poem by Reeve Lindbergh, beautifully illustrated by Kathy Jakobsen, comes alive in this animated program narrated by Mary McDonnell. John Chapman was his real name, but almost everyone remembers him by his legendary name, Johnny Appleseed, the man who sprinkled apple seeds and planted trees all across the Midwest.
  • Chrysanthemum (K-2) – A little mouse thinks her name is absolutely perfect until she starts school and all the kids make fun of her–except for Mrs. Twinkle, the music teacher, who thinks Chrysanthemum’s name is absolutely perfect, too!
