I recently was given the opportunity to review The Adventures of Boogabooa Land by Richard Milner.
The DVD contains 3~15 minute cartoons that are supposedly based on parables of the Bible.
I have to say that I wasn't terribly impressed. The animation wasn't terribly spectacular and the script was a tad on the cheesy side. But the biggest problem I had with this DVD was that the Biblical message wasn't really there.
My daughters, age two and ten, also watched the movie. (Several times. LOL) And afterward I asked my oldest about the movie. Specifically if it made her think about God or the Bible at all. Her answer was no. She was really surprised when I told her they were based on some parables from the Bible. And the Bible is something we study everyday for school.
So all-in-all, I'd say that dvd had some entertainment value for my oldest but it certainly didn't help establish any Biblical truths for them. Maybe some sort of wrap-up, similar to what Veggie Tales does, could help cement what the author was trying to get across?
I received a copy of this DVD from Thomas-Nelson Publishing for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own.
