Found a cute little animated story in Mandarin at Chinese for kids called "Play Watermelon." It's a free online storybook about a cat named Huahua who plays with a watermelon. Perfect for beginning Chinese students.
There is a list of vocabulary words to learn, including xī guā (watermelon), pā (lie), zuò (sit), lì (stand), gǔn (roll), jǚ (lift), and shuāi (drop). The video comes with audio, as well as traditional & simplified Chinese characters and the English translation.
