Chuck Swindoll's Paws & Tales Biblical Wisdom for Kids: # 8 Being Kind and Caring, DVD
My children really enjoy watching these films. They want to watch them over and over again and with all the stuff on TV nowadays, ex. Halloween, its the perfect alternative.

Not my Favorite but the Kids Love It
Eighteen months ago, our family was introduced to the Paws and Tales video series by Chuck Swindol's Insight for Living ministry. I gave it a mixed review because while the stories contained solid theology, I was disappointed in the quality and some of the comments made by the characters.
I figured the video would be lost in the back of our entertainment center and not receive many requests. I was surprisingly wrong. The kids have asked to watch the video several times and laugh over and over at the funny antics of the characters.
Being Kind and Caring: Biblical Wisdom for Kids is the second in the Paws and Tales series.
This video contains two episodes: The Hullabaloo at Hunker Hill and The Great Go-Kart Race. Based on Matthew 18:21-22, Hullabaloo explains the importance of forgiveness and not wrongly accusing people. Again focusing on forgiveness and the verse Matthew 6:14, the Go-Kart Race teaches teamwork. Bonus features include: music videos, activity sheets, games, and teaching resources.
While our kiddos enjoy watching this video, it isn't my top pick. The quality is not to the level you would expect for 2012. But in reality, how can I complain? They are learning biblical, moral values and laughing along the way.
Overall, the video is okay. A little disappointing but the kids like it. I would like to see less snide, rude remarks from some of the characters but compared to normal TV this is tame and looks almost saintly! Definitely worth getting from the library or purchasing if you are looking for solid, Biblical children's videos.
Thank you to Tyndale for allowing our family to review this product.

Bible based kids DVD
The DVD has two 25 minute episodes that are opened by a short introduction by Chick Swindoll. This particular DVD is the 8th in a series. The main characters C.J. and Staci, best friends and school-aged bears who are learning what it means to live like a Christian. The first episode: The Hullabaloo at Hunker Hill was mostly about a bully named Hugh who gets blamed for a pretty serious accident involving Staci and a soapbox derby car. Ultimately, it is a story of forgiveness and is based on Matthew 18:21-22. The second episode: The Great Go-Kart Race was all about working together. C.J. has organized a club made up of his friends, but everyone has their own idea of how the club's go-cart should look. They end up splitting up and coming up with some pretty sorry racers that each have their issues. In the end, they decide that working together is the best way and is based on Matthew 6:14.
Our family is not familiar with this series, but it looked good. So, I watched this DVD with my three year old son. He really liked the colorful characters and I liked the message. I also like that they didn't show a "fight" scene between two of the kids. There is also an option to print some resources on the computer which I plan on checking out.
Overall, I give it 4 stars and may check out other titles in this series.
Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this DVD in return for this blog.
