Review: Adventures in Booga Booga Land Vol 1 DVD by Richard Milner

I received the DVD,  Adventures in BoogaBoogaLand  by Richard Milner to review through BookSneeze It's an animated video from Tommy Nelson, featuring a monkey and a giraffe. The 3 short stories on this video use these characters to teach lessons loosely based on 3 parables of Jesus.  This DVD is geared for children ages 4-10.

I watched this DVD with my 7 yr old twins. They thought it was funny and asked if there were more videos in the series , so I guess that's a thumbs up from them. I don't think they learned the "lesson" of the various parables from this video though. I thought there should be more of a "conclusion" to each story.  The stories also utilize the classic cartoon "humor" of rocks falling on the monkey & squishing him, but he bounces right back, and things like that. My children thought it was funny, but a younger child might be disturbed by this, and some parents might object to it.

We will watch this video again, if I found a good enough bargain, I would purchase additional titles in this series. However, this is far from the "best" of the Christian children's videos I've seen from Tommy Nelson, and wouldn't be at the top of my list to recommend to others.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this DVD free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
