A very good way to explain Christmas traditions to young children. The storyline was good and the puppets kept the attention of even the youngest children for the most part. It did run a little long. You may want to show it with and intermission. Overall it was very informative and a good teaching tool.
I ordered this hoping to use it for a special treat for our outreach program at church for K-5th kids. When I sat down to preview it, I couldn't even make it through. It just didn't hold my attention, and I know the kids would be maxed out after just a few minutes. There are parts that are funny or very clever and interesting. I wish they would have asked a question and had a single clip about it rather than long extraneous dialogue drawing together one large plot. If you loved Veggietales' Easter Carol and Christmas Star videos, then you'll probably like this. But if you thought those were painfully long, I'm afraid you'd think the same here.
