Review of "Read and Share DVD Bible Vol. #1

“Read and Share DVD Bible Vol. #1” is perfect for exposing young children to Bible stories. This volume includes stories about Adam and Eve, Noah, Jacob and Rebekah among others. Each story is about 3 minutes. Therefore, the stories are not really as detailed as they could be, but they are just right for the attention spans of young children. This would be a good conclusion to a Sunday School lesson or an addition to a lesson. The music and animation will engage children and yet provide wholesome lessons as well!

Review for "Skeeter and the Mystery of the Lost Mosquito Treasure" DVD

I received “Skeeter and the Mystery of the Lost Mosquito Treasure,” a Max Lucado’s Hermie and Friends DVD to review. This is the first DVD I have seen in this series. The animation is excellent and the time is just right to hold the attention of young children. Based upon the Bible passage Psalm 139:13-14 and using Skeeter, the main character with a crooked stinger and poor sense of direction, the message that everyone is created unique and has a purpose in life is shared. Skeeter has been jealous of his older brother and has grown up believing that his father preferred his brother. Working together on an adventure brings the two brothers together and they discover that they are both special.
