I was given the wonderful chance to review Adventures In BoogaBooga Land from booksneeze. It is a DVD about Squid Sushi losing his marble. It's a collection of 3 short bible stories. The stories are told through the 2 main characters, Gerard the giraffe and Marty the monkey. The 3 stories was The Lost Pearl, Wally the Waiter and The Wedding Banquet.
I was really excited when I got an email stating there was new children items!! I was also really excited to see this was the same person that publishes Gigi, my daughter has some of these books. Our devotionals are also from this publisher(Published by Thomas Nelson). However I was not impressed with the over all attitude of the DVD. The characters was great, colorful and interesting. BUT the message that I had hoped for wasn't there! I can understand this being a great starting piece to getting kids to understand how to act with people and loving God but there was some trouble even with the characters showing greed. I didn't think the story held a good line to the meaning of the Bible stories it was trying to show.
Overall I think there are better put together "bible stories", I am so sad to say that I only gave it a 3 on a 5 point scale.
I received a free copy of this DVD through Booksneeze.com and was not compensated in any other way.
Thanks for the review, I've never heard of this DVD. Sorry it didn't meet your expectations :(ReplyDelete
