Tyndale Review: Paws and Tales-Being Kind & Sharing

When Paws and Tales became available to review, I put in my request for it and as you can see, Brent was happy that I did.
I had all my children watch this DVD, ages 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13. Guess what? They all enjoyed it. I don't think it's something my 13 year old would watch over and over and over again but I'm glad as the oldest he joined in.

The verses for kindness referred to are Mathew 18:21-22 and Mathew 6:14. This is the 8th DVD in the series and has two episodes. I like that each episode is about 20-30 minutes. I don't like my children watching hours of television, so when I buy cartoons for the children, I'm always looking for a series with short episodes.

While watching the video I would actually pause it from time to time, so I could talk to the children about the characters, what's going on, how is C.J. feeling in this scene, is God happy with this choice and so forth.

Also included is a Play Song section, this is where the children can 'sing along' with the characters.
You can print a pdf guide for parents or leaders. This includes:
*The Key Verse for the episode, you can have the child memorize it.
*Story Time~the pdf download has questions you can ask the children about the story.
*Bible Time~this gives you questions to discuss with the children, for instance, the conversation between C.J. and Staci was based on a question Peter, one of Jesus' followers, asked Jesus about forgiving others.
*Extra Time~there is two activity pages, one for each episode for your child to complete.

I found this a good spring-board to get my children thinking. Often times when playing with the neighbors the children will come to me and tell me how someone mistreated them, lied or didn't play the game right. Especially with my 7 year old, I can refer to some of the characters and of course point everything back to our Lord. But the characters gives him something to connect with by seeing how C.J. eventually forgave Hugh and how Staci, owned up to what she did (I don't want to give the ending away by telling what actually happened)

My sister MaryEllen, happened to review the same DVD. To read her review please click on her button.

  2. Awww, MaryEllen you're too kind. You should take it to church for the Sunday School children to watch, so you can take a picture of their excited faces and get their feedback.
