Three Tales of Yore

Three of Aesop's fables re-told and re-arranged by Marlene Wurfel for kids: The Donkey in the Lion's Skin, The Crow and the Pitcher, and The Milkmaid and the Pail. Aesop was one of the sages of Ancient Greece, like Socrates. The stories ascribed to him are thousands of years old (all dating to at least 600 b.c.) and are called fables because they always include a moral lesson. Storytellers are always philosophers at heart, and so are kids.

The Girl Who Cried Pee

This must be the worst Tales From the Lilypad Episode yet. Or perhaps it's the best. Possibly it's just middling the pack. In any case: urine need of a warning: this episode use the word "pee" exactly 21 times and is mostly about pee. This modern remake of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" has nothing to do with wolves but lots to do with soggy diapers.
