There is no question that children love to watch their favorite programs and cartoons on television. It also goes without saying these programs shown on networks such as Disney, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., etc. do a phenomenal job captivating the attention and imagination of our kids everyday.
While much of the children’s content shown on TV today can be educational, many programs do not usually go the extra mile to provide captioning or words to encourage the reading of the story they are watching. That’s when EZTales.com comes to the rescue!

Thanks to the knowledge gained through Black History Month, many people have learned about Crispus Attucks. He was one of the first people shot to death in the Boston Massacre. He was of African descent.
We also have learned about the Buffalo Soldiers, members of the U.S. 10th Cavalry who helped protect settlers in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona during the 1870s and 80s. They were all African-Americans. Their regiment also was part of the charge up San Juan Hill led by Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War.
And thanks to numerous books and movies, we now know about the famous Tuskegee Airmen. They were the first African-American military aviators who fought in World War II as part of the 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Bombardment Group.
But there are many other African-Americans who also have made tremendous contributions to science, the arts and American culture in general. And many of these are featured in the Black History book and lesson plans on EZ Tales.com. These valuable teaching resources are listed in the Seasonal Themes catalog on EZ Tales.com.
You may not know it, but there’s more to Groundhog Day than we’ve been told. At least, that’s how the story goes in Groundhog Day and Possum Nights, a modern-day fable on EZ Tales.com. When a possum shows up claiming to be a groundhog, the fun begins – and ends with a wonderful compromise and a lesson we all could learn from.
When my daughter said this, I knew just where to turn. Luckily, I had been browsing the “Seasonal Themes” catalog on EZ Tales.com a few days earlier, and I had noticed a book about Dr. King. The book is a concise biography of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and a brief overview of the national holiday that was established in 1983 to honor his life. There’s even a short game and quiz that accompanies the book. It’s perfect for an 8-year-old.

Note: I received this email from a subscriber recently, and thought it summed up this book nicely.
It’s amazing how many great books were rejected by mainstream publishers when they were first written. J.K. Rowling’s book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was rejected by 12 publishers before Rowling’s agent landed a publishing contract for the book. Beatrix Potter had a similar problem with her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Unable to find a publisher for the book, Ms. Potter self-published. She had 250 copies of the book printed, and soon sold out the entire edition, including one copy to Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes.
A copy of Peter Rabbit found its way to publishing company Frederick Warne & Co. Warne sent the book on to L. Leslie Brooke, one of the leading children’s book illustrators of the time. (You can see some of Brooke’s work on EZ Tales.com in the books, Johnny Crow’s Garden and Johnny Crow’s Party.) Brooke was so impressed with Ms. Potter’s work that he recommended its publication by Warne. And as they say, the rest is history. The Tale of Peter Rabbit was a roaring commercial success. And so was Beatrix Potter. She became one of the best-selling children’s book authors of all time.
Beatrix Potter would go on to write and illustrate 25 delightful books featuring the antics of her anthropomorphic animal characters. EZ Tales.com is proud to include more than half of her books in animated, read-aloud form. Beatrix Potter books on EZ Tales include:
