Christian Shows For Kids
This is Larry the Cucumber
If you are a Christian parent maybe you are having the same problem that I had when my children starting watching television. I could not find shows for my children to watch that actually taught them about the Bible and our Lord. I was fine with them watching to normal shows and realized early on how much they could learn from that hour or two of television a day. So I started the search for show that would teach my children in a fun way about our Heavenly Father in a way they could easily understand. I searched the Internet and found a few that I would like to share with you.
Probably the most popular children’s show that you can find for your child is Veggie Tales. Veggie Tales features different cartoon character vegetables that are funny and entertaining to watch, in all honesty TV time in our house is when I clean my house usually, but Veggie Tales is so funny. Each of the shows presents a story from the Bible with a twist making it modern and kid friendly. I have had my children act out the shows after watching them and this sparks discussion about the story and with that discussion about God and how much He loves us all. Veggie Tales also sell products like other kids shows, this may not be important for some, but my children love their favorite characters so it is important for us for them to be able to play with the characters. The show is popular and you can watch shorter shows on Netflix as well as longer movies. You may also order DVDs from Amazon.com and other sites. The show brings family together when watching it and is very enjoyable.
BOZ is a large fun cartoon bear. He plays with his neighbor children while they learn lessons about God. They also learn about shapes, color, numbers and manners depending on the DVD that you are watching. The show features sing –a- long type songs that are very catchy for children. My children are captivated by the bright colors and fun attitude that goes along with BOZ. The way the show keeps a light attitude and makes sure that children understand that the Lord loves them and cares for them is what really makes this show worth a look for parents. Again Amazon.com is a great place to purchase DVDs and sing-a-long CDs featuring BOZ the bear.
God Rocks is a show that features people talking about the Lord as well as a cartoon story that explains a Bible story, much in the way Veggie Tales does. The show keeps the children’s attention with a bit of a rock and roll attitude. The modern feel behind the show keeps it fun and lively. The stories that the show presents are important for children to learn and are the more popular Bible stories. The stories are given a modern twist to make it more understandable for young children and to actually make the stories pop off the screen in a fun way for the kids. I found my first DVD for this show on Christianbooks.com, but have found more on Amazon.com as well.
