  • Ingers Promise

    A reindeer in the Arctic Circle learns a lesson about being dependable and trustworthy

    Travel north to the Arctic Circle, where reliability can be a matter of survival. Inger may have the whitest fur and an impressive set of antlers, but his friends just can't depend on this young reindeer. First he disrupts a wedding. Next he forfeits the big sled race. Will Inger get another chance to prove he can be trusted? Inger's opportunity soon comes, against the backdrop of an unforgiving Arctic snowstorm, and at stake are the lives of three reindeer. Inger's story is set in Norway and features a fast-fading way of life among the Sami reindeer herders, who have lived in close interdependence with the reindeer for centuries. In glowing watercolors, illustrator Andra Chase depicts the rugged beauty of the Norwegian landscape and the richly colorful Sami people who live there.

    • Emphasize the value of being trustworthy
    • Investigate the lives of the Sami people
    • Introduce information about reindeer and other Arctic wildlife
    • Explore the geography and culture of Norway

  • Headlice: An Itchy Problem

    This video teaches students everyday precautions that they can take to keep from contracting head lice. Grades K-6

    Head Lice: An Itchy Problem teaches students everyday precautions that they can take to keep from contracting head lice. The program explains that anyone can get head lice, the symptoms of head lice, the treatment for head lice, the precautions that need to be taken to prevent re-infestation, but most importantly, it provides students with the information they need on how they can guard against contracting head lice in the first place! The program informs students that head lice can be spread by sharing a cap, head phones, bike helmets, a comb or brush, or at a sleepover. It explains the importance of telling someone if they suspect they have head lice, what to expect if lice or nits are discovered, and it provides reassurance that head lice is a problem with a solution.

  • Ludmilas Way

    A horse named Ludmila learns the value and benefits of sharing in a barn in Russia

    Discover the spirit of generosity in a timeless Russian village. When homeless dog Vladimir is rescued from the cold, he joins a growing community of animal characters who inhabit Ludmila's barn — Ludmila herself, of course, and the three hens, the two cows, the one contrary goose — and we mustn't forget the mylishe, tiny but hungry — and then the swallows! Ludmila knows the best way to maintain harmony in these tight quarters: share and share alike. The ancient town of Suzdal, with its onion shaped domes, belltowers, wooden windmills, and chalk-white monasteries, provides the backdrop for this simple story of generosity. A traditional Russian family, that cares for the animals and grows fruit and vegetables on the small plot of land, echoes — in human terms — the theme of sharing.

    Ludmila s Way will help you:

    • Promote the value and benefits of sharing
    • Demonstrate how one person can bring about group change
    • Introduce the geography and culture of Russia
