America's Special Days is a series designed to be used in lower elementary grades to support teachers in helping students understand and appreciate why we celebrate certain days commonly referred to as "holidays".

This popular series utilizes an interdisciplinary approach that combines language arts, science, math, and fine art topics into a social studies framework.

Vivid, exciting locations and warm scenes of family celebrations illustrate the colorful narrative. Each 15-minute program features one holiday, its history, its meaning, and how Americans celebrate it.

Episodes #1-10 are available in both English and Spanish. Both versions are included on the DVD at no additional charge.

Rights granted with purchase include: a) life of media audiovisual use, b) public performance, c) campus or building closed circuit and digital/video-on-demand transmission.
