The Biggest Story DVD and Audio Book-- by Kevin DeYoung

Once upon a time there lived a man and a woman. They were the happiest people on the planet.
True, they were the only people on the planet, but they were still terrifically happy.
Unfortunately, things didn’t stay happy and wonderful for long . . .
The Bible is full of exciting stories that fill children with awe and wonder. But kids need to know how all those classic stories connect to Scripture’s overarching message about God’s glorious plan to redeem his rebellious people.
In The Biggest Story, Kevin DeYoung—a best-selling author and father of six—leads kids and parents alike on an exciting journey through the Bible, connecting the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ's death on the cross to the new heaven and new earth.
With powerful illustrations by award-winning artist Don Clark, this imaginative retelling of the Bible’s core message—how the Snake Crusher brings us back to the garden—will draw children into the biblical story, teaching them that God's promises are even bigger and better than we think.

Here is what I thought......
 I wasn't sure exactly what I would think when I first received these in the mail. The covers for both the audio and DVD were both very colorful. The story was very interesting and told in a way I had never heard before. It was definitely a different take on the Bible. My kids seemed to like it ok. They are 9/10. The DVD was not our favorite. It's way to busy to be able to pay attention to the story. The colors and odd ways the characters are drawn take away from the story itself. The audio book is much more pleasant and I think, it would be the better value for your money. I enjoyed being able to review this and I think that it can definitely be used to help children become interested in learning more about Jesus.
I received the DVD and Audio book from FlyBy in exchange for my honest review. A positive review was not required.
