  • Following Isabella

    Set in Spain a sheep named Isabella learns what it takes to become a leader and not a follower.

    A herd of Spanish sheep is badly in need of guidance. Everyone knows that sheep are followers. They are perfectly content to trail along behind whomever happens to be a few steps ahead. This is exactly the case with a flock of sheep living outside a tiny village in the heart of Spain. One day Isabella begins to wonder if there isn't another way. "Must we always be wandering about willy-nilly, nobody knowing where we are going?" But recognizing the need for a leader and accepting the responsibility of being one are two different things. It will require a bolt of lightning — literally — to transform the reluctant Isabella into the leader she must be. From crumbling stone farm buildings and rugged grazing land to the pinnacled Alcazar, once home of Queen Isabella, this story captures the drama of the Spanish landscape, the perfect backdrop for the exciting events that lead to our Isabella's transformation. 

    Following Isabella will help you:

    • Consider leadership as a service to one's community
    • Investigate different kinds of leadership
    • Present information about sheep and sheep farming
    • Explore the geography and culture of Spain


    "A story about leadership, confidence, initiative and cooperation. Particularly useful for studies in social skills and character education. [Isabella] will be appreciated by general viewers as well." — School Library Journal

  • Beas Own Good

    Set in the beautiful Loire Valley of France, a honeybee named Beatrice learns that rules are made for her own good.

    Make a beeline for the French countryside to learn how boundaries benefit everyone.

    To keep the honeycomb strong, to make the very best honey, and to keep all the little honeybees safe and sound, bees must do things just so — according to honeybee rules.

    One early spring day, an inexperienced honeybee named Beatrice hears about the most beautiful garden in the world, and she decides to go on an expedition, even if it means breaking a rule or two. When a change in the weather turns her outing into a near-disaster, Bea realizes that rules are for her own good.

    Bea's story takes students to the Loire Valley of France where they will visit a beehive, a country market, and the famous Chateau of Villandry. Illustrator Andra Chase has created delicately beautiful scenes of Bea’s world inside and outside her hive. 

    This DVD is a word for word match of the storybook and will help you:

     Investigate the function of rules at home and at school
     Promote responsibility and self-control
     Explore the lives of bees and other insects
     Present information about the culture and geography of France

    [an] excellent, well-rounded production...”

  • AIDS Facts for Kids

    This compelling program gives kids the facts they need to make healthy choices. Grades 5-8

    Here is a straightforward message for your students: "Protecting yourself from HIV and AIDS is your own responsibility." AIDS: Facts for Kids puts to rest unnecessary fears about HIV infection, then focuses on the real dangers of uninformed or irresponsible behavior.

    Beginning with the basics, students learn about HIV and how it disables the immune system, leaving the infected person vulnerable to an array of diseases. Students learn that we don't catch HIV from a sneeze, a water fountain, a telephone, a swimming pool, or other casual contact with an HIV-infected person. HIV is transmitted in two ways: by having sex with an infected person or by allowing infected blood to get mixed with our own.

    This program offers straightforward advice to students:

    -Don't have sex

    - Don't use illegal drugs

    -Guard against any activity - like piercing a friend's ears - that might result in the mixing of blood
