What's in the Bible Review and Giveaway!


Our Homeschool Reviews has hit 100 followers, so to celebrate, I am excited to announce that I will be hosting my very first giveaway!!!  I hope you are as excited as I am!!   

What’s in the Bible? is a new DVD series from VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer designed to walk kids and families through the entire Bible. The 13 DVD-series released in March 1, 2010.

So far, only three DVDs are available to purchase:

DVD #1 - In the Beginning
DVD #2 - Let My People Go
DVD #3 - Wanderin' in the Desert

DVD #4, which takes you through the book of Ruth, should start showing up in stores around the beginning of October.  Phil is currently writing DVD #5, covering the lives of Samuel, Saul, David and Solomon, which will come out in the Spring of 2011.  In addition, they are also working on a What's in the Bible? curriculum, coming out in November. 

Tyndale House Publishers has been extremely generous in sending me a copy of the first three to review, AND one lucky reader will win a copy of DVD #1 - In the Beginning!! 

My Thoughts:  I came across this series a couple months ago and without even watching the videos, I was excited about it!  All you have to do is take a few minutes to browse around their website and you know what I am talking about!  We have watched the DVDs and they are hilariously funny AND educational!!  Each character has his or her own unique personality and they just leave you wanting to hear more (and some have left us laughing uncontrollably, with tears rolling down our cheeks)!  You can meet some of the characters and watch a few clips from the DVDs HERE.  The great thing is, that not only did our daughter learn some new things, my husband and I did too!  We definitely plan to purchase the rest of the series as they become available. 

Thoughts of a 7-Year Old:  It was pretty funny and the characters are puppets. Some of the puppets names are Chuckwagon, Sunday School Lady, Clive and Ian, Buck Denver, the pastor, and Michael (the boy in the car). Oh, and of course, Phil, who's not a puppet. It's about the Bible.


So, here's how to enter to win a copy of DVD #1 - In the Beginning!  For each comment, you will get one (1) entry.  Only the first comment is mandatory, all others will just increase your chance at winning.
