Another one for the kids

I got the chance to review another children's DVD. This time it was Volume 1 of The Read and Share DVD bible. What a great way to introduce little ones to the bible! The stories on this DVD are; The Beginning, Adam & Eve, The Flood, Abram, Isaac & Rebekah, Jacob & Esau, Rachel, Jacob & God, John the Baptist, Jesus is Born, Jesus is Tempted, Jesus Love Children, and One Lost Sheep.

My son is three years old, and is quite the sponge. I hear him repeating back everything he sees on television, which is why it's important that I make sure what he watches is appropriate. Since we don't have cable, it's a little easier to do. I was happy to add this to our growing collection of family movies.

I only have one disappointment in this movie. The stories are mostly narrated, and the characters hardly talk at all. While narration is important to keep the story going, I think kids relate better to characters when there is more dialogue.

With that said, I still think this is a great addition to anyone's collection. It's a great way to bring your favorite bible stories to life, and fun for kids and parents alike.

Thomas Nelson Publishers provided me with a free DVD to review. All opinions are solely mine and are not influenced in any way.
