The Ten Commandments DVD Review by Mrs. Kimberley Wampler

Harrington Park, NJ 07640

The Ten Commandments is an animation cartoon of each one of the Ten Commandments. It is designed for children between the ages of 2 and 8. The focus of the cartoon is for children to understand the Ten Commandments in the world they live in.

Written for children to be able to understand at a young age, the cartoon also has good music that captures the attention of the children. The video does a good job of explaining the Commandments, but it may be too legalistic. I understand that it is teaching law, so it must be legal. The cartoon does state at the beginning of each chapter that the greatest commandment of them all is to "Love one another as I have loved you." So an attempt was made to keep it balanced. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give it a 2.5.
