My Review and Thoughts:
Our family has used The Big Story Book a few years ago when our Church promoted it and gave insight on how to incorparate it into our family Devotional time. I was quite excited to know that the DVD and Audio Book are now available. My boys are now older, but I am very lucky that they enjoy watching DVD's with me. My boys and I sat to watch the DVD and we enjoyed it very much. The animation really kept my boys enthralled and they quite interestingly the DVD gave them a different take on the Garden of Eden. The video would be especially great for little ones because each of the 10 chapters of the Bible are covered in 2-3 minutes on this Animated Film. The Audio CD is also a wonderful tool to use for family Devotional times. We also used it in the car for Car time chat and learning. My middle son was excited about the CD as he is loves Audio Books due to a Vision Issue! The Biggest Story on DVD and Audio CD get HIGH FIVES from our family!
