GOD’S KIDS WORSHIP MODERN CD 3-PACK (A Dad in the Middle Review)

3ModernCDBundleI was recently given the opportunity to review some modern worship CDs put out by God’s Kids Worship®.

God’s Kids Worship® was created by Bob Singleton, a musical award-winning Christian dad as well as Grammy® nominated, and 4 time Dove nominated producer of music for kids. He wanted to make it easy for kids to worship God, and for grown-ups to lead them.

God’s Kids Worship® songs are produced for kids to enjoy singing, and adults to enjoy leading. The songs are sung by kids for kids, match the attention spans of kids, don’t have long introductions or guitar solos, and contain only the best, most singable parts of songs.

Review of “What’s In the Bible”

Background

I trust that many of you know who Phil Vischer is.  He founded Veggietales in 1990 and built the company into a wildly successful venture.  Phil left the company in 2003 (though he continues to voice characters in the movies).  Phil wrote about the whole adventure in a series called What Happened to Big Idea? After a couple of other ventures, Phil started Jelly Fish labs and Jellytelly in 2008 as a revolutionary way to reach children with the gospel of Christ.

The Jellytelly website started as a subscription site, then went to a free format (which is when I found them) and now appears to be subscription based again with some free content.  With puppet based characters like Buck Denver, Sunday School Lady, and many more combined with interviews with kids and The Fabulous Bentley Brothers (check out Old Testament…New Ideas (Jelly Telly’s Books of the Bible Series)), Jelly Telly offers internet based programming to teach kids about Christianity.

In 2009, Phil Vischer and Jelly Telly announced that they were joining forces with Focus on the Family and Tyndale House Publishing to produce a new 13 part series for kids called “What’s in the Bible” to walk kids through the Bible.  An ambitious project to walk kids through the entire Bible, I was excited to get my hands on it when it was first announced.  I was lucky enough to receive a preview copy of the first episodes – “In the Beginning” to review on this site.
