CAFE LILY'S REVIEW:


Veggie Tales creator Phil Vischer is back with more “What’s In The Bible?” fun for kids and parents alike.   

The 3rd dvd in this series is just as fun and exciting as the first two.   Using vibrant images and colors, along with a wide variety of interesting characters, Phil Vischer has created a series that will hold a child’s interest while teaching important Bible truths.  What impresses me most about this new series is how “meaty” and in depth it is.  Most kids won’t even realize just how much they are learning.   

The concepts presented are at a much higher level than you normally see in a children’s Bible video.  As one example, in this particular title (Wanderin’ In The Desert) the children are taught that the world “holy” means “dedicated or set apart for God”.  After the initial teaching on that particular word, the concept is repeated over and over again using various methods which helps children grasp and retain the definition.

Personally, my favorite section of these dvds are the question and answer segments with kids of all ages.  Their responses and expressions are adorable!  As a home educator, I wish this series would have been available when my son was in elementary, because I definitely would have included the dvd’s as part of our Bible lessons each day.   This series seems to geared for children 10 and under, although older children and even adults will enjoy watching it.
