The Show and Tell Bible DVDs are an illustrated reading of the Bible for children. The Books
of Moses, the first volume to be released, is 115 minutes long, and it sells for $17.99. The production company is hoping to release four more volumes covering the rest of the bible, but I was unable to find when these are scheduled to be released.
The first five books of the Bible are covered in this first volume. There is a picture every 7-10 seconds illustrating the narration. The illustrations range from cute cartoon pictures (some with simple animation) to real-life pictures and maps. The narrators alternate between stories, with 11 total narrators. I didn't think the narrations were of very high quality. They were simply someone reading from a script without much difference in tone of voice. My children didn't seem to mind, and they learned a lot from watching this DVD.
On the main menu you can choose from the five books: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. After you choose one, you are taken to a scene selection screen with pictures of the different passages available to watch.
There is an additional Activity book that you can purchase for $3.99. I received
this to review as well. It is a small book with 60 pages and an answer section
at the end. The activities include questions and answers, crossword puzzles,
mazes, and dot-to-dots. It was good to use for some follow-up after my children
watched the DVD.
This DVD is intended for ages seven through adult; however, my two-year-old enjoyed sitting down with my older children while they watched. The
Show and Tell Bible DVD has been a welcome addition to our home. My children have really grown in the knowledge of the Bible from watching the DVD.
