“Treasure Island”

The boys have been into watching this old video of Treasure Island.  I know that reading them the story would be more academic, but they have retained much of the story by watching it.  I get a kick out of hearing them act out some of the scenes almost word for word.  I honestly don’t believe that they would be as into the story if it were not for the movie.

“Captain Billy Bones”


“Long John Silver”




  1. How cute! My boys seem to show more interest in stories if they watch them, too. They also seem to retain more information that way. Go figure! They do like to read, though.
