Read & Share DVD Bible Review

Read & Share DVD Bible Vol. 1 was my latest item to review from Thomas Nelson publishing.  My son is a very visual learner so I thought this would help him comprehend some of the Bible stories a little better.  We sat down as a family to view it and I hoped we would be able to make it through one or two of the stories at a time.  

The first thing I noticed about the DVD is that the animation is very basic.  We get so used to Disney and Pixar that it is sometimes easy for us to forget that not all animation can be that kind of quality.  The kids didn't seem to mind one bit.  

Caleb made it through one story before it lost his attention.  I think he was expecting some music.  Eva, however, was totally enthralled.  She loved it and watched all 60 minutes at once.  She loved the stories of Jacob and Esau and the birth of Jesus especially.   There are 13 stories in all and they each last about 3 minutes.  They stick to the Bible and are very general in their terms so these stories appeal to a wide range of denominations.  

If you're looking for something for the kids to watch and be able to discuss for family night, this might be a good choice for you.  I can tell that it appeals more to the younger kids so if you've got some toddlers or preschoolers, they might enjoy it.  

I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
