  • 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

  • Feathers at Las Flores

    A parrot learns valuable lessons about gossiping and repeating personal or unfounded information.

    Fly into Miami Beach and meet a parrot who talks too much. People never stop talking, do they? And from his perch at Las Flores café, Feathers hears every word — and repeats a good deal of what he hears. The problem is, the words sometimes get a little jumbled up, turned around, stretched out of shape. That's what happens when Julio finds a ten dollar bill on the sidewalk. By the end of the day — and with the help of the talkative Feathers — Julio's bit of good luck has grown to immense proportions — at least in the minds of the regulars at Las Flores. Feathers' misadventures take place within sight of palm trees and blue ocean waters in Miami Beach, Florida. Andra Chase has depicted a kaleidoscope of local color and characters in her sunny watercolor illustrations.                         

     Feathers at Las Flores will help you:

    • Demonstrate the hazards of repeating personal, sensational, or unfounded information
    • Introduce facts about parrots and other tropical birds
    • Present information about the state of Florida

  • 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
