If you’ve been wanting to find a fun, inventive, and exciting way to teach your children all about the Bible, you must check out the “Buck Denver asks…What’s in the Bible?” Dvds! Those familiar with Veggie Tales will be pleased to know that is collection was created by none other than Phil Vischer! After viewing these DVD’s personally, I’d say they are great for children of all ages and even for their parents. I’m not ashamed to admit that I even learned a thing or two!
In What’s in the Bible? Volume 1: In the Beginning, viewers will learn all about the book of Genesis! Viewers can expect puppets skits, questions and answers of all kinds, terms and concepts are explained, and the show never drags. It’s quick paced but enough to still learn and understand what’s going on.
Wondering the length of this feature? On this DVD you can expected two episodes that are 25 minutes long each. I like that this is split up as I can use one episode per unit study in educating my children. There are also some great bonus features that include a story about kindness in which my kids loved!
In the beginning of the DVD (part 1) it was explained how the Bible came to be! Where the Bible came from was a question my 4 1/2 year old daughter had recently and thanks to What’s in the Bible, she got all the information about the how’s and the whats! Like how the Bible is the most translated, influential, best selling book in the world!
There was section of real kids answering the question about what they thought the Bible is! I loved hearing their answers and so did my kids! They then looked about how the Bible can be explained scientifically. It was all really fascinating and done really well!
Part two of the DVD, viewers learn more about the Bible, like who wrote it, who translated it, and much more. We are then educated about the beginning of creation, the story of Adam & Eve, Noah and the Ark, and the Tower of Babel is covered in a way kids could understand with puppets, flash animations, and catchy songs.
Overall, my family loved What’s in the Bible Volume 1! We are excited to start collecting all the DVD’s and are looking forward to learning more about God and the Bible together

Reckless is the latest full-length record from Jeremy Camp, which was released on February 12, 2013. Reckless features the single and title track ‘Reckless,’ which is already making waves at radio. Jeremy Camp has been incredibly successful at retaining fans, and this release will be no different. New and old fans alike will find ‘Reckless’ to be as heart-felt and passionate as ever. Jeremy Camp has had a stellar 10-year career, earning accolades that most artists only dream of including 5 RIAA certified Gold-selling records, over 3.5 million records sold to date, a GRAMMY nomination for his 2010 album Speaking Louder Than Before, and a total of 32 No. 1 Radio hits across all formats (AC, CHR, Rock, & Inspo). In 2010 Jeremy Camp released We Cry Out: The Worship Project, which featured the still-charting single ‘Overcome.’ Jeremy then went on to release a greatest hits collection in 2012, I Still Believe: The Number Ones Collection, which featured 14 of Jeremy’s best tracks. He also released his first Christmas album, Christmas: God With Us in September 2012.
I have really been enjoy this album. First and foremost, know that Jeremy Camp is up there as one of my favorite Christian music artist. His sound is distinct and his lyrics rich. When listening you clearly can feel the words spoken from his own life which many of us can relate to in different ways. This album doesn’t disappoint in reflecting on and in God’s mercy, goodness, and love.
My favorite song on this album is “We Must Remember” about God’s forgiveness and about how He died for us and bore all our shame and pain. He sings of the victory, redemption, and saving Grace of our ever loving ever lasting Saviour. There are many other great songs on the album and I could sing praise about every single one.This album right now is one of my go to when I want to have some quite time with the Lord or when I feel the need to be surrounded by uplifting music that Praises my God! I highly recommend Jeremy’s latest album, I wasn’t disappointed in the least bit.
“I Still Believe” book:
As a family that loves to play games of all kinds, we are always on the look out for those with very big playability factors. And as a homeschooling Mom, any game I can use in the classroom to educate my two children is usually a winner! This year Learning Resources released the game Riddle Moo This! and gave us an opportunity to try it out and I couldn’t be happier with the result of that.
Riddle Moo This is a game recommend for children ages 5 and up that focuses improving and enhancing vocabulary as well as reasoning skills. The game itself is very appealing to my kids ages almost 5 and 2 years old. My kids are pretty keen on games and sometimes really surprise me with how much they already know (especially my two year old whiz of a son). They totally loved the farm animal theme and the quick pace of Riddle Me Moo and have asked to play it over and over again!
The contents of this game included four generously sized different colored buzzers that each make their own sound such as a dog, horse, cow, and a rooster. The sounds ensure when you play you’ll be able to recognize who buzzes in first with the correct answer! Do note that each buzzer takes 2 AAA batteries that are not included. Also these buzzers can be pretty loud if not placed directly on the table! My kids tended to love the buzzers a lot and were pretty excited about using them during game play and even when it was over!
There are 150 double-sided riddle cards featuring 300 word clues total. There are two different colors of cards, the blue for a harder level of play and the red for easier which features more age-appropriate common nouns . You can choose to just use one color set or you can mix them to make things more interesting. There’s also an advantage to any player that picks up a Barnteaser card which challenges a child even more by making up their own riddle by excluding one of the clues on that card! Goal is first person that correctly answers 10 riddles correctly wins but if you wanted too, you could mix things up to your liking.
This game is a total of four players and there will need to be reader of the cards which could be a parent, teacher, or another child. The kids could even take turns being the reader. Storing this game is a breeze. The box is very durable and the buzzers and game cards sit snugly inside without shifting around. Just be sure not to turn the box upside down or you might have a mess of cards when you take it out to play again.
Overall, we really enjoy the game and are looking forward to lots more use of it. Any brain boosting game that my kids can excited about and can be challenged by in improving their vocabulary and thinking skills is a total winner!
