The VeggieTales have been a part of our family for eight years. The theme song is a frequent pick for the last song before bedtime and remember… those vibrant vegetables even made our top ten favorite books list! So, when Phil Vischer created the What’s in the Bible series, we had to check it out. The children loved Volume 1 and seemed to develop this affection for “PONIES!!!!”
When I told the kiddos that we were blessed with the opportunity to review Volume 3 of the What’s in the Bible series, the chorus was loud and strong. “PONIES!” Every day that we checked the mail… “Are the PONIES here yet?” Finally, the DVD arrived and the children had the wrapper off before I could even find the camera.
Snuggled into their chairs, they chatted excitedly about whether or not the PONIES were going to be in this What’s in the Bible episode. I was so afraid they would be disappointed. I thought that if PONIES did not come up soon, they would lose interest.
I was wrong.
You see, it was not the PONIES that kept them glued to the television. Nope. They loved the music. The characters.
But, what were they learning?
Something amazing that I didn’t expect
One thing happened after watching Volume 3 of What’s in the Bible that completely caught me by surprise.
After watching the movie, my children wanted to find Bibles to look at, flip through, and sleep with. Picture books would not suffice. They wanted to look at my Bible. At Bill’s Bible.
The children wanted to see the books of Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
My children were learning to appreciate… learning to LOVE the Bible.
See it for yourself
If you think these movies are just for children, OH NO! Bill and I have laughed and learned right along with the children. For instance, have you ever wondered about all those rules in the Old Testament?
