Legal Question in Technology Law in Massachusetts

Can I write a blog or ebook about activities to accompany movies/TV shows if I don't use any images from the movie or show?

I would like to start a blog, and possibly write an eBook, with educational and art activities to accompany various children's TV episodes or movies. I would list an episode and then give various activities a parent could do with their child following the theme of the episode. Can I legally do this? Would it be legal to include the shows name in the book title? What things legally do I need to consider? Thanks!
