Tomorrow's Hollow DVD Review by Christine Hindle

Casscom Media/Smile Isles
6000 Industrial Drive
Greenville, TX 75402

This DVD is interesting. It is described on the case as an "epic adventure." However, it is only about fifteen minutes long, which seemed like a bit of a letdown. It did not really hold the interest of either our preschooler or our middle schooler like I thought it would. They generally enjoy Christian animated stories and have a large library of them.

The graphics were fun, and the story was certainly one that needs to be told. It tells the story of two sheep on their journey to Tomorrow's Hollow (Heaven) and all the pitfalls and snares of the devil (in this case, a wolf) that they encounter along their way. This would make a good witnessing tool to use for a children's program. I'm not sure that it will be something to purchase for your home library, however, because I can't see it being played over and over like some of the DVDs our children enjoy.

The regular price on Casscom's website is $9.99. I think it would be a better value if they included something else on the DVD along with it, since it is such a short program.
