Summary
  • Thanksgiving Day: America celebrates: Learn many different ways that Americans celebrate this important day
  • Thanksgiving Day: right autumn colors provide a glorious backdrop for this brief history of one of the most celebrated of American holidays
  • Thank you, Sarah: We the people of the United States ... almost LOST Thanksgiving? Yes, that's right! Way back when "skirts were long and hats were tall" Americans were forgetting Thanksgiving, and nobody seemed to care! Thankfully, Sarah Hale appeared. More steadfast than Plymouth Rock, this lady editor knew the holiday needed saving. But, would her recipe for rescue ever convince Congress and the presidents?
  • Getting to know Abraham Lincoln: This video version of author/illustrator Mike Venezia's popular children's book outlines the life and contributions of arguably America's greatest president. Abraham Lincoln is a colossus of history: a complex, brilliant, and yet un-likely hero who led the United States through one of its darkest and most-divisive chapters. Period prints and photos provide an introduction to the Civil War while original animation add the action, humor, and personality that keep kids watching
  • Presidents' Day, Washington and Lincoln: With the help of a colonial Presidential crier children come to understand why we celebrate Presidents' Day and what makes it so special. They learn about George Washington and the important role he played in the formation of our country. Next, they learn about the life of Abraham Lincoln and his resolve to keep our country unified, making him one of our great civic leaders. Lastly, students are reminded to honor all of the presidents on this holiday
  • Abraham Lincoln comes home: When Abraham Lincoln was shot in Washington, D.C., in 1865, the country was swept by shock. Upon his death came a huge outpouring of grief and sympathy for the courageous president who had guided the nation through the civil war. Over the course of thirteen somber days, people paid homage as Lincoln's funeral train made its way from Washington, D.C., to Springfield, Illinois. This book captures the feelings and experiences of a young boy and his father as they make the journey to see Lincoln's funeral train. The beautiful and realistic paintings help capture this experience
  • Martin Luther King Jr. day: Two students from different ethnic backgrounds are brought together as they learn about the life of America's foremost civil rights leader. This program will grab your students' attention as they learn about Dr. King's contributions to the people of the United States and those living throughout the world. They will learn about King's childhood experiences with prejudice, his ability to speak in front of others, his commitment to nonviolence, and finally why it is so important to follow his message of hope and peace
  • A picture book of Martin Luther King, Jr.: This video production of the original book covers the main events and turning points of King's life and death. Both are dramatically portrayed through the vocal interpretation of the text, the illustrations and the various sound effects interjected during key scenes. The reason for the celebration of Martin Luther King Day is clearly and factually explained
