Really Woolly Kids Trusting in the Shepherd Review & Giveaway

Somehow I've never heard of the Really Woolly Kids series by Dayspring until now. Apparently they've been around a while, and a quick browse at the Dayspring website shows dozens of toys, movies, and other related merchandise.

I was sent a review copy of Trusting in the Shepherd, Songs and Stories about Psalm 23:4. I turned it on to watch with the kids, and I kid you not, 5 year old L asked to watch it 3 times in a row. I thought it was really sweet. The songs were upbeat and fun, as evidenced by my 2 year old's dancing. The story line was cute and age appropriate. In the first (of two) stories, the little girl lamb, Gracie is afraid, and comes to understand that the Shepherd is watching over her.
I had to explain to my son what a shepherd was, and what they did. I then tried help him understand how the bible says God takes care of us, like a shepherd takes care of his sheep. I'm not sure this connection would be immediately evident to other young city kids, like mine, who have no knowledge of sheep. Nonetheless, I was happy to have the opportunity to explain it.
My son talked referred back to the movie several times after watching it. Apparently it made an impact on him.

I was given the opportunity to give one copy of the Trusting in the Shepherd DVD away to a Cheerios Underfoot reader.
