Join VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer and a boatload of new friends, Buck Denver, Sunday School Lady, Brother Louie and the crew, on a groundbreaking journey through the world's most amazing book! This series springs from Vischer's passion to reverse the trend of biblical illiteracy in the church and show elementary age children why God's Word in the Bible is the most reliable source to learn about God today and how it came to be preserved throughout history. Unlike previous efforts to retell Bible stories, it explains the Bible in a format that's humorous and entertaining for children and adults alike. Each DVD is filled with original music, animation, puppets, and creative writing that will teach kids about the origin, significance, and contents of the Bible from cover to cover, with a book-by-book analysis of events, timelines, and even genealogies. The lessons kids will learn are amazingly simple and unforgettable.

It is a bit unclear what the target audience might be here. The material and information presented in the manner in which it is presented seem to be contradictory. Part of it is a bore fest while part of it encourages juvenile disinterest and distraction through entertainment tactics that do not hit their mark in this household. I would not recommend this to anyone. If it is designed for young children, it is not a good fit. If it is designed for older children, it is insultingly too childish in format. While there would be an interesting fact here and there, it seemed that most of the film was devoted to the fine art of procrastination, which is not something I want to encourage in my children. There appeared to be little " meat and potatoes" in regard to actual information as most time was devoted to the awkwardly silly and simultaneously dull characters. Two out of three of my kids walked away from it prematurely, and, frankly, I felt sorry for having them watch it. To be fair, my six year old doesn't care for puppets, and I was assuming that the dvd would feature stories from Genesis and beyond, but by the end of the film, it seemed to have barely even scratched the surface of the basic story of Adam and Eve. We have viewed Veggie Tales films before, and though there is plenty of theatrical procrastination on the part of the characters there at times as well, this one tops the cake at it. For young tots, try a Hermie film by Max Lucado instead for simple lessons on sharing and kindness.
