My Review

Remember me mentioning my dear neighbor children? One thing I see them enjoying is the rug their daddy drew into a neighborhood with roads and buildings to maneuver their cars and park them. I thoroughly enjoyed the up and down aisles chase in the building store and know it will be identified within child's play. Another thing that stood out to me was the bricks appearing to be solid and secure. Without a Firm Foundation, nothing put above it will stand ~ nothing haphazardly placed because of laziness or wanting to get it done quickly to go on to something else. Earthly materials not standing up under pressure.

The DVD starts out with write-in's from two viewers. One child wanted fairy tales/nursery rhymes and a parent wanting a clear visual story of a parable for children. I liked that in the DVD a character said he knew of a "pair of bulls" once.

In the second story, wait until you get to the end and find out what the "pour-age" does for Humpty! All of these Mother Goose ~ the goose that is somebody's mother ~ characters are coming for help from their town's mayor, who is overwhelmed with the need to see to his own. He turns a little hard-boiled until he gets up on the wall and see's what needs to be done to work together in a neighborhood. Then he is able to lead and delegate rather than trying to do it all on his own. There is a good example at the end of blame and taking responsibility for one's own actions that family's will be able to discuss together. Good conversation opener on seeing needs, helping each other, and doing what we are able to do.
