Review- DVD Bible
The Read and Share DVD Bible from Thomas Nelson Publishing consists of thirteen bible stories from scripture. The stories come from the Read and Share Bible by Gwen Ellis. This DVD is ideal for toddlers and pre-schoolers. Each story is 3-minutes in length, which is ideal for the short attention spans of younger children.
My own children 10, 7, and 2 watched this video. My 10 year old watched the whole thing and declared them good to okay. My 7 year old said he liked them and my two year old lasted about 2 minutes. I wasn't suprised that she didn't last very long. She has never been a big fan of T.V.!
My opinion of this DVD is that it was okay. It isn't my favorite, nor is it the worst I have ever seen, just somewhere in the middle. Most of the DVD consist of narration with the cartoon figures acting out the narration. The animation is simple but colorful. What I did like about the DVD is that each story was simple and easy to understand, perfect for little minds. If you are looking for simplified Bible stories for your little one, then this might just work for you.
