>A good week for children's programming on pay cable begins Thursday (March 1, 6 A.M. and 7:30 P.M. ET) with Storybook Classics on Showtime. Danny Glover gives a spirited reading of "Brer Rabbit and the Wonderful Tar Baby," which features the fanciful illustrations of Henrik Drescher and music by Taj Mahal. The Disney Channel introduces Avonlea (Mondays, 9 P.M. ET), based on a sequel to L.M. Montgomery's juvenile classic Anne of Green Gables. The quaint 13-part series stars Sarah Polley as an independent girl sent to live with her country cousins in rural Canada.
