Volume 8: Words to Make Us Wise will take your family through the books of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon. You'll hear the story of Job and his faithfulness and learn all about the wisdom David and Solomon share in the Psalms and Proverbs. A quick trip through Ecclesiastes will teach you to trust God in the midst of everyday trials, and then Sunday School Lady will explain the "mushy" book - Song of Solomon - and how it demonstrates God's love for us. Memorable songs and great entertainment from VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer.

Now I've got to admit I wondered how these would be covered. These books would be hard to teach kids because there isn't much in the way of stories. But creator Phil Vischer (the man behind the original VeggieTales) proves that he can get the job done with another entertaining video.
As always, there are two half hour lessons on this DVD, and between the two of them, we cover 5 books of the Bible. First up, we learn about these poetry books and why it is important to know the difference between history and poetry. (After all, one of the books here compares God to a bird.)
Job is obviously the easiest book to cover since there is a story to it. I was a little unhappy with the discussion of parts of it (seems to not want to take the pose parts as metaphorical as well as the poetry parts), but the conclusion was certainly right on. Then we head to Psalms and learn about the praise God of Israel and how some of those Psalms are the basis of the hymns we use today.
The second episode takes us through the wisdom of Proverbs (and how that is different from smarts), Ecclesiastes and the meaning of life, and finally the love poem that is Song of Solomon.
I was most interested in how they would cover that last book. After all, it is a love poem and these videos are aimed at kids.Read more ›
Volume 8 deals with the books of poetry, called the Writings. It gives and overview of the books of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon.
Trusting God even when life is hard to understand happens in the book of Job. The Bible’s songbook, Psalms, and the different types of psalms are covered, both in the first episode. It's about 25 minutes in length.
Episode 2 introduces Proverbs, telling the difference these brief poetic sayings and promises. It also briefly covers Ecclesiastes, about what can seem to be the pointlessness of life, and the Song of Solomon (“mushy, mushy, mushy” sings the puppet Ian), about romantic love.
This volume also describes what the poetry in the Bible is like, and why knowing we are reading poetry helps out interpretations.
Each volume in this series has a flyer inside with a page of suggestions to help parents talk to their children. “What’s the difference between being smart and being wise” is one question to discuss for this volume. Each also has a sheet to color of the cover picture on the DVD. There is also a web site for finding more “What’s in the Bible?” activities.
This approximately 1-hour DVD does an excellent job of covering the Bible's five books written in poetry.
I am probually be like one of those College Kids that got VeggieTales moving but I will say this You will want to see the next one in the series if you start at the very beginning. My opps moment I started my husband in the middle he says meh to the series; but he is happy to sit with me and watch as I watch for uses and well as just plan fun. Again I use clips for starting up or explaintions to the Children at church. It grabs their attention and starts some discusstions even if it's on how Pizza isn't in the Bible I know they are paying attention.
