The Biggest Story- DVD & CD Giveaway

  How exciting it is that they released a DVD and audio book version of the The Biggest Story! If you are not familiar with it, I reviewed it before and had a book giveaway too. You can read it HERE.
We all sat down to watch the short DVD and I was really curious as to how would it be presented in an animated film. I was already impressed with the colorful and unique illustrations with the book. Our  6 yr old definitely enjoyed the book version so I am sure that she will enjoy the short film. We were able to keep a 4 yr old's attention with the book so I am interested on how would this keep her attention.



  From start to finish, the animations kept them both entertained. The way it was narrated is not so formal. Which is totally positive because the approach was "kid friendly". There are no "big words" that kids would not be able to understand.  Sure enough, it did impress me and my husband. Illustration and animation wise , it is definitely a new and modern way to teach children about the biggest story of the Bible.


  After school, on their snack time ..I played the audio CD. I wanted to see if they will just talk to each other or will they listen to it. I was actually shocked that they were quiet and I must tell you that they are both not quiet when eating. NEVER QUIET! These young kids of ours talk about their day. Sometimes they argue and sometimes they talk about what games they will be playing after the snack. It was pleasurable! I would recommend this on long travel with kids!
