My Thoughts

The Beginners Bible Series on DVD from Time Life and StarVista Entertainment presents wholesome entertainment for the whole family. Volume 4 share three stories: "The Story of Joseph & His Brothers", "The Story of Daniel & the Lion's Den", and "The Story of the Battle of Jericho". And, included is the bonus story of "The Story of Jonah & the Whale"!  The stories are presented in both English and Spanish with a run time of 120 minutes. What a great value! SRV $9.95

Which of the four stories is your favorite? Each of these stories teach important character lessons from the Holy Bible. It's one of the most perfect ways to engage younger children through colorful animation and music with songs sung by Kathie Lee Gifford.

Snuggling up with your child or grandchild and watching these stories is a blessing. It is a most rewarding feeling to have your youngster learn about God's Word and create special memories that can last a life time.

 I was blessed to receive a copy of The Beginners Bible, Volume 4 DVD for this review posting. And,  I look forwards to watching these with my own grandchildren one day.  What a fun idea for Children's Church or Sunday School! Consider adding these to your own church or home library for all to enjoy!


Thank you,
