Personally, I think they should make more Animated Hero Classics, like William Shakespeare, Isaac Newton, Thomas Jefferson, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Albert Einstein. There are many historical figures out there.

My parents bought these on VHS for us when I was little. We enjoyed watching them over and over again, and I have been searching for them on DVD. They're enjoyable and very educational. Definitely worth the money.

"I have purchased the Animated Hero Classics videos for five elementary schools that I have worked in. One of the best examples I can give you is using the Harriet Tubman video during Black History Month, which is February. Our students were glued to the video, which was used as a part of a celebration to honor Black Americans where we presented the school with a banner made of famous Black Americans. Before I purchased the Animated Hero Classics videos, I took several of them home to preview. My seventh, fifth, and third grade children watched several of the videos with me and helped me decide whether to purchase them. They liked them all and were truly engaged in the story of each famous American. I, as a teacher and parent especially, liked the documentary at the end showing a real life photo of the person and some additional factual information about the person's life. The information portrayed in the videos appears to be very accurate and presented in a way that keeps children interested. The activity books that accompany the videos are wonderful and have a variety of activities for teachers to use. I highly recommend these videos to educators and families." -Nancy Kiefer, Library Media Specialist, Edison and Richmond

I'm writing concerning the wonderful DVDs you sent for us to preview. At first we didn't think we'd be able to get them due to financial cutbacks but after the teachers saw them and viewed them they were so excited that we decided to find the money somewhere to get them! We already had a couple of them and they are my most popular ones during the holiday season. Our art teacher was overjoyed to see there were some DVDs of famous people in art and immediately took some to preview. Thank you for providing these DVDs for us and we are looking forward to the workbooks coming to go along with them!

The Animated Hero Classic Series "Every teacher at our school that has previewed your Animated Hero Classics Family Collection has raved about the product and requested that this collection of videos be included in next year's budget. Not only are these videos historically accurate, they are also of such quality that the students have requested to be allowed to see some of them repeatedly. That may not sound very impressive to you, but for inner-city kids (kindergarten to third grade) to get into history of any kind to that degree is indicative of an extremely successful product" - Mary Hacker, Librarian,Sugar Creek Elementary School, Kansas City Missouri School District
