There are two ways for you to view our DVDs before purchasing.

1)  Video Clips
We have substantial video clips for most (not all) of the videos on this website available for your viewing on the applicable product page. If the video you wish to view is part of a series, you will find it included within the video clip of the full series, rather than by itself. 

2)  Full Video Preview
If you represent an institution—a school, a library, a youth service agency, or another such organization—you may preview up to two videos for 14 days at no cost via online streaming (applies to most of our catalog, but not all).  Please contact us directly for more details.

We are always looking for more quality educational materials to add to our catalog. If you are a producer with a product you would like us to consider distributing, please contact us with information about your materials. We look forward to hearing from you!
