What's In The Bible Review and Giveaway

Our Homeschool Reviews is participating in the What's In The Bible?, Battle for the Promised Land Blog Tour!   This is very exciting for me, because back in September when I reached 100 followers, I hosted my first ever giveaway where one lucky reader won What's In The Bible?, In the Beginning, the first DVD in the series. 

Our family received, watched, and reviewed the first three DVDs and all three of us absolutely loved them!! 

In What's In The Bible?, Battle for the Promised Land, Buck Denver and friends continue their quest to learn about the Bible in number 4 of the 13 What’s in the Bible? DVDs. In Battle for the Promised Land, they visit the Old Testament books Joshua, Judges and Ruth.

So who is the genius behind this series?  In 1990, 24-year-old computer-animator Phil Vischer sat down to create a group of characters that could teach Christian values to kids in a delightfully different way.  A tomato named Bob and a cucumber named Larry were born.  VeggieTales would go on to revolutionize Christian film making, selling more than 50 million videos and placing Phil’s faith-filled stories in one in every three American households with young children.  

Phil continues to pursue innovative new ways to integrate faith and storytelling through his new company, Jellyfish Labs.  His projects include Jelly Telly, which provides faith-based daily programming via the Internet at JellyTelly.com.

My Thoughts:  I cannot say enough about this DVD series.  It just doesn't tell stories from the Bible, it connects the stories and events of the Bible together to help us understand His whole story.  Our family has enjoyed watching the first four DVDs together and I am glad we watched them that way!  There were many things that even my husband and I learned.  It was also nice to be able to answer any questions our daughter had during the movie.  

The characters are hilarious and each one has their own personality.  My favorite would have to be Buck Denver, but I also like to watch the Popsicle Stick Theater with Chester Widget.  Below you can see a clip of them both. 



Thoughts of a 7-Year Old:  I learned that the book of Judges is about different judges who gave peace to the Israelites. When each judge died, the Israelites started doing evil things. The book of Ruth is a simple book, only a few pages long. It is about how Ruth's husband dies and her mother-in-law wouldn't leave her, so they went to a grain field and then they lived there. Then a man named Boaz married her.  I like all of the characters and I would watch the rest of the series because I learned a lot and they are really exciting and funny.

What a great DVD!! I would love to win because I have a new baby in the house - a week old - and a 5 year old son who's feeling a little left out...would love to have something we could do together while still being in with the baby and discuss and make him feel special even with his new little sister!! My mom has been taking him to church while I keep the baby in for now, so this would definitely help us tie everything together when he gets home!
