We recieved a copy of  DVD Read and Share: The Jesus Series, Life and Miracles to watch, courtesy of Book Sneeze.

It is an animation of the popular children’s Read and Share® Bible.  The Jesus Series introduces children to the life of Christ. It is a half-hour, four part presentation of Jesus’ ministry. Children will see Jesus call His disciples, feed 5,000 people, heal the sick, teach about God’s kingdom and introduce the Lord’s Supper.

I was really excited about getting this DVD in and watching it with Rory. I can say that the mellow music and vibrant colors were great, but it was very hard to keep our attention. I love the message, but it would have been nice if it weren’t so slow throughout. There were a lot of long pauses after each “character” spoke.

If you have a child over the age of three I think it’d be a better fit. Overall, simply because of the stories, I’d recommend this DVD. I think it’d be especially great for church programs for children. Just a warning, though, it may be hard to keep the younger kids’ attentions!
