This video collection features animated adaptations of three Caldecott Award-winning children's stories that just beg for lively sing-alongs: Simms Taback's classic THERE WAS AN OLD LADY WHO SWALLOWED A FLY (narrated and sung by Cyndi Lauper), Judy Sierra's ANTARCTIC ANTICS, and Robert Kraus' MUSICAL MAX (narrated by Mary Beth Hurt). The DVD edition includes three bonus stories: KEEPING HOUSE, WAITING FOR WINGS, and a Spanish version of MUSICAL MAX.
