A Bug Collection DVD Review
Hermie and Friends: A Bug Collection, by Max Lucado
including Milo the Mantis Who Wouldn't Pray, Buzby and the Grumble Bees, and Hailey & Bailey's Silly Fight. Stories about praying, behaving and getting along. All three stories have excellent sound effects, music and animation; the voice overs are funny and full of character.
My favorite story in the bunch was Milo and Mantis Who Wouldn't Pray...or should I say didn't know HOW to pray..Milo's snack shack is blown away in a wind storm, and Milo's friends suggest he talk to God about it. Milo thinking he is far too small and insignificant to be noticed by God...comes up with far fetched and quite amusing ideas to get God's attention. All the while, missing the "signs" God is sending him. Milo doesn't get what he wanted in the way he expected...but, received more than what he actually needed.
I think I got just as much out of these stories than the kids did. I would recommend for ages 2 and up. They are lots of fun, without being "preachy"
I received this set for free, in exchange for my honest review from BookSneeze.
