We received the Read and Share DVD Bible from Thomas Nelson to review. (Order it from Amazon here.) It’s a 60 minute DVD broken down into 13 stories ranging from The Beginning, Adam and Eve to Jesus is Born and One Lost Sheep. Each story is 3 minutes long which really does help keep the attention of smaller children. My 6 and 4 yr old watched the whole DVD in one sitting and enjoyed it very much. It would be easy to show just a couple stories to smaller children because the DVD menu is set-up nicely and easy to navigate.
The stories themselves are bright, colorful and very cheerful. This really gets the children’s attention and keeps it. The stories are narrated by different voices that are warm and caring. The words being narrated are understandable enough even for toddler ages.
My daughter Abigael’s (age 6) opinion:
“It’s fun to watch and I liked learning about Jacob and Esau and Isaac and Rebekah. I like watching Bible Stories on DVD.”
