Coat of Many Colors - Based on the book by Dolly Parton

Winter is coming to Tennessee and there's no money to buy a new coat, so a little girl's mama sews one for her out of rags. The little girl wears it to school proudly, and when the other children laugh, she gives them a quick lesson about what it means to be rich.








Pretend - Based on the book by Jennifer Plecas

What could have been a quiet afternoon at home turns into an adventure for Jimmy and his dad. Their couch turns into a boat! The staircase becomes a mountain! And blankets become a cozy hut, just right to cuddle inside. The one thing they don't have to pretend is how much they love one another.







The Little Engine that Could - Based on the book by Watty Piper

The classic tale of the determined Little Engine that, despite her size, triumphantly pulls a train full of toys to the waiting children on the other side of a mountain.
