Phil Vischer, the creator of Veggie Tales has come out with yet another awesome DVD as part of his great series "What's In the Bible?"! This series is a little bit different than the Veggie Tales series in that instead of animated anthropomorphic vegetables telling about the gospel we have Muppet like puppets and animated cartoons to illustrate and tell about the Bible. This series makes it fun and easy to learn facts about the Bible that we might have not already known. All of the What's In the Bible? episodes use humor, creative storytelling, and fun songs to create an entertaining and informative learning experience. These episodes would be a great homeschooling tool to use with Bible study. We love these and always learn something new from them.

Zari with the What's In The Bible Series: Why Do We Call It Christmas? DVD

We received a free copy of the DVD Buck Denver asks... Why Do We Call It Christmas to watch and review. This DVD answers some of the most perplexing Christmas questions: Why do we call it Christmas?, Why do we chop down trees and drag them into our homes on Christmas?, Why do we hang stockings?, Who is Santa Claus and why is this large jolly man celebrated during Christmas?, What is Hanukkah/Chanukah?, and What does Emmanuel mean and who is he?. It also answers the biggest question of all, What does all this have to do with Jesus' birthday?!

I thought the presentation was super cute in this DVD. Buck Denver, the intrepid newsman, starts out with asking some of these questions to two of his friends and then they tell him he needs to host a Christmas party so they can answer his questions. He sends off invitations and the educational adventure begins.

My children know the story of Jesus' birth very well. We love to read and act out the story in Luke 2 of his birth for Christmas. Before we watched this DVD my kids had no idea how any of the other Christmas traditions had to do with Christ's birth.

We enjoyed this DVD very much. It was very cute and very informative. We loved learning some of the history behind Christmas and why some of the holiday traditions are what the are today. We also loved learning how and why these traditions actually have a tremendous amount to do with Jesus' birth. My kids were somewhat surprised that what they thought were secular traditions actually had a lot of spiritual and religious basis. It is great to know that all these traditions point back to Christ somehow.

Besides the 60 minute main feature on the DVD there are bonuses to partake in as well. On the DVD it has funny outtakes, sing-a-longs, and a poem that Buck recites. Inside of the DVD it comes with a note from Phil, Focus on the Family "What did you learn?": parent to child question and answer sheet, & a coloring page. It also tells you where to go online to download more coloring pages and printables, get a free advent calendar in December, and subscribe to a free Christian magazine. Some of the fun printables and downloadables on the website go perfectly with what was covered on the DVD.
