The messages or underlying take home truth that the authors are trying to get across may be difficult for children?

I also let the movie keep running after the first time through and he did continue to watch it.

We currently own two of the Booga Booga DVDs, and though they are short, we liked them so much that I bought one for a friend's family. They tell the bible verse they are discussing before each episode. Also, they carry the plush animals at Lifeway if you want to make a great Christmas gift.

I was super excited when I opened my mailbox today to see the dvd I had requested to review had finally came.

Adventures In BoogaBooga Land: Squid Sushi Loses His Marbles, The Parable of The Lost Pearl and Other Stories by Richard Milner. Stories from the Parables of Jesus.

Description:

Based on the parables of Jesus, join Marty the monkey and Gerard the giraffe as they bungle their way through the paradise of Booga Booga Land inadvertently learning lessons that Jesus taught many years ago. Good Gimbo! Marty the monkey and Gerard the giraffe are back again with more exciting adventures, as they head out to recover treasure and save the day by catching the chocolate cake recipe thief. With another exciting episode, the parables of Jesus are presented in a clear, challenging, and engaging way that the whole family will enjoy. Follow Marty and Gerard as they become employees for 10,000 jobs.

Episodes include:

*Squid Sushi Loses His Marbles (The Valuable Pearl - Matt 13:45-46) *Wally the Waitor (The Weeds - Matt 13:24-30) *The Flaming Monkey (The Wedding Banquet - Matt 22:2-14)

Review:

My review was mostly based on my 4 year old daughter's reaction to the three short movies on the dvd. The first movie, Swuid Sushi Loses His Marbles, actually teaches our children that there are bigger things in life than items you may have at home, treasurers to one may not be that to others. The second show, Wally the Waiter is about someone being deceitful and the third, The Flaming Monkey is about people coming together. The movie is very short, though it kept my daughter entertaining and she actually wanted to watch it again, so for that, it was worth watching.

I give this movie a 7 out of 10.

Adventures In Booga Booga Land
Format- DVD- 45 Minutes running time
Cartoon-Ages 5-8( my opinion)
Tommy Nelson- a division of Thomas Nelson
Rated 3 Stars

When I seen this DVD to be reviewed I jumped at the chance. With working the Nursery and Toddlers at Church I felt this would be good for them as they love to watch the Veggie Tales. Based on the parables of Jesus, I was a little disappointed in this for a couple of reason.

There are three short movies on the DVD- "Squid Sushi Loses His Marbles" based on Matthew 13: 45-46 - The parable of the hidden treasure and the pearl. "Wally The Waiter " based on Matthew 13:24-30-The parable of the weeds and "The Flaming Monkey" based on Matthew 22:2-14- The parable of the wedding banquet

Before watching each episode I read the scriptures that pertained to the specific movie and I could understand where and how it related but I understand that these are made for children and I do not think that a younger child will get the meaning behind the cartoon. I feel that the younger children will enjoy them as each one is short so there attention can be held, but explaining the parable to them needs to be done in such a way they will understand the concept of what the cartoon was about. When a child is old enough to understand what the parables mean then I feel the cartoons may be a little childish for them.
I also did not hear anything mentioned about Jesus in any of the three episodes and I feel if they are doing a Christian DVD then they should at least mention Jesus and the scripture verses mentioned somewhere along the line. The idea is great, there just needs to be a little bit more Christian substance to them in my opinion.

I received this book free from the publisher through the Book Sneeze bloggers review program. A positive review was not required and the opinions expressed here are my own thoughts on the product.

The dvd entitled Adventures in BoogaBooga Land: Squid Sushi Loses His Marble is a children's dvd that teaches three parables. The dvd contains three episodes, one for each of the parables and each episode is about 15 minutes in length. The three parables that it portrays are: the lost pearl (Matthew 13:45-46), the soil and the seeds (Matthew 13:24-30), and the wedding banquet (Matthew 22:2-14). Although I was looking for a great new Christian dvd for my daughter this one was a bit of a disappointment to me. I was expecting to see a show that was different than most other cartoons because it was based on the Bible. The only way that I could tell that it was a Christian dvd was the fact that it told the Bible verse that the parable came from before each of the segments began.

The first parable portrayed on the dvd was the parable of the lost pearl. I did not feel that it had a very good story line and that it didn't relate anything to the kingdom of heaven or even hint at it. The second parable portrayed was the soil and the seed and had nothing to do with the parable at all. The third parable portrayed was the wedding banquet and by far, out of the three, this one made the most sense and had a good enough cartoon storyline to go along with it.

The characters of this series are just average but lack a bit of energy. The Christian values don't seem to be represented much in these movies because there are a lot of characters getting hurt (splatted, sling-shotted, catapulted, etc.) with no apologies or asking if they are alright. I wouldn't really recommend this dvd to anyone with the vision of helping their child learn about the Bible stories but if you would like just a typical cartoon then this dvd would be fine for that. I received a free copy of this book for an honest review through the publishers at BookSneeze.com.
