Annalyn has become obsessed with puppets. It started with a puppet show we saw on vacation. Then it really flared up when I brought home a What’s in the Bible DVD. And to top it all off, we saw the Muppet movie after Thanksgiving. (It was SO good!)
My girl LOVES puppets. Sock puppets. Finger puppets. TV puppets. In-real-life puppets. She loves them all! But what she asks to watch or listen to Every. Single. Day. is What’s in the Bible?
What’s in the Bible is made by the same guy who created Veggie Tales, and it features a crew of goofy puppets who explain the ins and outs of books of the Bible. So far, we’ve learned about Genesis and [not a book but obviously important] Christmas. I don’t know if it’s how the puppets present the information, the catchy songs or some other puppet magic, but Annalyn has learned a ton from the videos (and I’ve learned a lot of catchy songs that just won’t get out of my head!).
Tonight, I read her a holiday book that mentioned Hanukkah and she interrupted to say, “Hey! We know what that is! It’s in my puppet movie! Hanukkah is a really, really old holiday! The temple was cleaned for eight days!”
Huh. I guarantee I couldn’t have explained that to her without consulting Wikipedia. I didn’t even really have a response to that. Except to thank God (and my friend Amanda) for introducing us to What’s in the Bible!
I am not [just] telling you about this DVD series to sell you something. You can go directly to the What’s in the Bible website, Amazon or your local Christian bookstore to buy these videos to help teach your kiddos about the Bible (and get strangely catchy songs stuck in your head for days). Each DVD costs between $13 and $15.
But if you want six DVDs (volumes 1-5, plus “Why Do We Call it Christmas?”) for less than $50.00 (including shipping), here’s the place to go:
