Animal Safari Series (36 Lessons)
Karla Majewski, wildlife instructor, is series host. She is described by the reviewer in School Library Journal as “enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and at ease with both children and animals.” The animals she introduces in the programs are inhabitants of her private zoo and have come to her because they were neglected or abused or could not survive in the wild. Through Karla they have happily become “creature teachers” in her wildlife programs. The review in Booklist praises Karla as a host who “easily answers questions and asks for feedback from her young audience.” This series was designed to acquaint young people with the characteristics, behaviors, and habitats of many diverse animals. In most of the programs, members of the audience are invited to touch, hold, and gently interact with the animals. Recommended by Booklist “for young animal enthusiasts and classroom audiences,” the series emphasizes respect for the animals and their habitats. Children interact with animals of all kinds from around the globe, while learning about each one. DVD and VHS formats available.

English grammar is a fearful subject to most students, young or old, who need to review the fundamentals of English; and it’s a subject often not in the least bit interesting to them. So…what better way to allay their apprehension and engage their attention than to tell stories that involve the study of grammar. DVD and VHS formats available.
