Review: 

 Somehow we missed this series! Miss Grace was VERY into checking out the video, as many of the questions, were ones she had proposed to me before! While I have always made things pretty simple for her in replying, this video gives more historical info, but in a funny way, that keeps kids attention! She couldn't wait to share her new wisdom with her classmates! I love videos that entertain while educating! And because this series comes from Phil, I don't have any worries about WHAT is being taught! But I really recommend watching it WITH your children, as part of a fun family night!

The video would be great for showing during Advent for a younger Sunday School class- you could take one question at a time, tie it into the days bible passages, and have a related craft! You could also do the same at home, for family devotion time! We highly recommend this DVD as a wonderful Advent holiday offering!

Here's a sample answer for Why we have Christmas trees:


You can get sample coloring pages from the video on the website as well. Just click Volume Christmas and hit enter, for 2 pages of coloring pages like these:
