DVD Review and Giveaway: Really Woolly Kids Trusting in the Shepherd
This is a new DVD by DaySpring. It features two stories about facing fear and learning to trust in Jesus, our Shepherd. The theme verse for both stories is Psalm 23:4 (NLT), "Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid for You are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me."
In the first story, "Gracie's Ewe Scout Campout," Gracie, the six year old lamb, is scared of the darkness at night during her Ewe Scout's campout. Her grandma teaches her and her friends about Psalm 23:4/the Shepherd's protection. Grandma Tabitha is a hip grandma with an iPhone and is not shy about dancing :). In the second story, "Jacob's New Friend," Jacob (Gracie's brother), the seven year old lamb, faces fear and anxiety because of a new huge kid in school whom he accidentally pounces on. His dad wisely advises him to look on the bright side and reminds him that he needs not to be afraid because our Shepherd is with us to guide and protect us.
My 9 year old boy and I watched the DVD together. Both of us enjoyed it. The theme song, "Fear Not" is catchy, but the intro sounds very similar to a song from Jonah (VeggieTales). The extra features include outtakes, deleted scene, trivia questions, sing-along song, and online Family Adventures info. This is a cute, fun DVD that helps children learn God's Word and apply it in their daily life. It's geared towards ages 6-12 but I think some younger kids would enjoy it, too.
