Read and Share: The Ultimate DVD Bible - Volume 2

Read and Share: The Ultimate DVD Bible - Volume 2
Full of bite-sized stories in both book and DVD. This volume contains more than 100 beloved Bible stories, including time-honored favorites like Joseph, Moses, Balaam, The Promised Land, Solomon, Elisha, Daniel, Jonah, The Boy Jesus, Miracles of Jesus, Jesus' Death and Resurrection, and many more.

What I thought...
This is kind of a 6 in one - half dozen the other review, because I have a 6 year old and 17 month old twins.

Bible Only:
First of all Read and Share: The Ultimate DVD Bible - Volume 2 is beautifully illistrated. It also does a great job of teaching each Bible story in a way that small children can grasp and easily understand. However, the age range for Read and Share is 4-8...I totally disagree with this age range. I have a 6 year old and almost 17 month old twin. While reading The Read and Share Bible, my oldest told me that "this is a perfect bible for the twins" He found it boring and toddler like. My twins on the other hand sat and listened, pointed to pictures, we talked about each story...they loved it, and have been bringing it to me to read! Another thing that I was very disappointed in was the lack of a prayer or bible verse at the end of each story. At the beginning of each story it tells where out of the bible it is taken from, but that's it. I felt it to be just a "story book" Rather than a "BIBLE" story book. To twart this, we say a prayer at the end of each and read more out of another bible to make it a little more, bible focused. With all this being said, I think The Read and Share: The Ultimate DVD Bible - Volume 2 would be good for ages 18 months - 3. If you have a older child I would recommend looking for something else.
Now, the DVD's on the other hand held my 6 year olds attention, and he loved them. He sat down and watch each from start to silence. I like being able to watch the stories. My twins like the dvd's as well, but they only watched a few before that went off to play.
I think that if you have children of different ages from 1-8 you would probably like this, but if not, I still maintain my suggestion of age 18 months - 3.
