Elem. Bible Study Foundation
Every story from the Bible that Superbook tells, has a lesson to be learned and the lesson is applied to real life situations. Superbook keeps all of the kids in my Bible study classes entertained and wanting more. I uses this for kids TK-8th grade.
The start of most Superbook episodes is with Chris, Joy and Gizmo (the robot) and either Chris or Joy has a situation to deal with (making the right choice, helping someone, forgiving someone, etc.). Then Superbook takes them back in time to a part of the Bible that will help them with their situation back home. The kids and Gizmo interact with the people from the Bible and learn so much! The fact that Superbook can cram so much information in such a short time frame is beyond me. During the kids adventure in time, they ask questions and a lot of times Gizmo uses his inner computer to answer the question OR someone from the Bible answers it. After the kids have learned their lesson, Superbook takes them back home at the same time they left and the kids can now make a good decision and take action; for example, sharing their pizza with the less fortunate.
If you buy these DVDs, which I high recommend you do, they each come with a family discussion guide filled with questions, where in the Bible to find the answer, and prayers. I use the discussion guide to help me come up with questions for my middle school aged classes, really get them to think about how what happened in Superbook relates to life.
Overall this is an amazing series and I always look forward to what story they will release next!
