Adventures in Booga Booga Land - Volume 1 - DVD

Join Marty the Monkey and Gerard the Giraffe, two zany best friends, as they embark on three adventures. Each episode is 15 minutes long and presents one the parables of Jesus.

Episode 1. So this is Booga -Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard
Episode 2 : Marty's Sandcastle - Parable of the Wise and Foolish Builders
Episode 3: No Light in the Lighthouse - Parable of the Lamp under the Bowl

This video lacks any real substance and Jesus is not mentioned other than on the cover claiming that the stories are from the Parables of Jesus. I watched this video with my 5 year old daughter and she thought it was okay, but admitted it's not her favorite. I was not impressed with this video. I don't think it stressed the lesson of the parables and it is a loose interpretation of each story. It is good for entertainment, but not for teaching the Bible. I would suggest for ages 5-8.
