Entertainment: +3
Acceptability: +4

FILM SYNOPSIS: This DVD animated comic adventure for wee ones concerns a family of bugs about to enjoy a vacation in Florida when a hurricane nearly blows them away. Although they are unable to enjoy other activities until the storm passes, Grandpa Lou and Nana use the time to tell their grandson Squiggz the fitting story of Noahs Ark.

PREVIEW REVIEW: With a sound biblical message, this song-filled cartoon manages to captivate its intended audience. My nephews Austin (7) and David (5) each gave it, you should excuse the expression, a Thumbs Up.

Also available from the same creator, Bruce Barry: The Roach Approach: The Mane Event!. This adventure is based on the story of Daniel In the Lions Den. In this animated adventure, Grandpa Lou takes the roach kids on a camping trip. As they travel through a drain pipe, Grandpa Lou tells the kids the biblical story. Along the way, they learn valuable lessons about faith, friendship and standing up for their beliefs. Both DVDs are available at Christian bookstores.

I found nothing objectionable; the filmmakers are considerate of childrens sensibilities. I suggest parents view these productions with their little ones in order to answer questions and to see if they understood the parables.
