Iesodo and his friends live in the Holy Land, in a beautiful Cypress Tree on the shores of a vast Lake (or as we know it, the Sea of Galilee). These birds are an unlikely group of friends, and though they have their differences, they have one thing in common: since they met Iesodo, their lives have never been the same. Now they're out to spread his message of hope to the entire bird world!
- "The Gathering" - It's a beautiful day in the Holy Land and Iesodo is gathering all the birds to hear his message of hope. Rocky takes us back to the day the flock first believed in this amazing dove who would change their lives forever.
- "Believing is Seeing" - Luke, a blind finch with no gift of flight or sight, seeks help from Iesodo. The group is amazed when Iesodo not only helps him fly, but also helps him believe, so that he sees what's truly important.

A lot of artistic value but light on actual Biblical training. First off, it requires young minds to look beyond the surface story about birds and see that it is really teaching about Jesus. Older children may understand but younger children wont see that. Second, the teaching that is there is often watered down moral stories, maybe what you would call seeker friendly. Weve been a lot more pleased with Whats in the Bible with Buck Denver (have the whole series both kids like it and learn a lot) and Theo (just have one right now 5-year-old likes it, a bit slow for 3 year old).
Louis1 Stars Out Of 5GarbageNovember 20, 2014LouisQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1If you want something with colors and music to entertain your children without bad language then this Iesodo character will probably do just fine for you. If you're looking for something more biblically based that will encourage your child to desire a relationship with his or her creator and our savior JESUS CHRIST this surely is not it. To start with the main character and name sake of this series is Iesodo, which I'm wondering why it doesn't say Iesodo Christ because that is who this Iesodo bird is depicted as. I do have a problem with the main character of a kids series depicting our Lord and Savior as a bird, if they were going to depict him as a bird at least let him keep his name, there is only one name by which we are saved and it is surely not Iesodo.
In one episode there is a flock of birds, the elders (pharisees) and they are telling about how this bird abandoned her mate for another bird and must therefore be shunned and questioning Iesodo on what should be done, his answer was to this was essentially let him who has done no wrong cast judgement, the other birds fly away leaving Iesodo and the adulterous bird. Iesodo tells the bird "follow your heart and do good" .... It is written "the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked" . This whole message of "follow your heart" never came from Jesus, God the Father or anywhere else in the bible. The watering down of Christs message is a key factor in the destruction of TRUE Christianity in our culture. When we trade the two edged sword that is the word of God for a watered down lukewarm message and then pass that watered down message to our kids we shouldn't be surprised when they act and grow the same way as our secular counterparts.
Furthermore, not a mention of God the Father or Jesus Christ. That should be enough. I'll be demanding a full refund.
