Love FREE stuff? Me too. So. . . I got this DVD cuz there is sooooo much on it. Then I downloaded the 4 FREE lessons - wow! Do NOT miss out. They even include the entire script. Kids and/or adults can make a play out of the story. Way to go - watch the story, then read the story. Great for family, for church!
Christmas is coming!

Review by try2borganized (Posted on 8/6/12)

I know that Christmas comes every year, and every year I want something that is uniquely different and special for my children as well as our extended family. This is IT! The story is beautifully illustrated in both sight and sound. The captivating storyteller's voice tells the story while the artistic talents of Gloria Kohlmann reveals the story with her intricate chalk drawings. When sight and sound were combined, the story was brought to life before our very eyes.
great addition to Christmas Unit Study

Review by mama rhody (Posted on 12/19/11)

I am NOT artsy. At. All. Which is why I LOVE See The Light anyway. Having a master artist doing the teaching is great for the kids...and mommy! And I loved using The Gift of Love as we've been talking about Christmas. My kids were very into the black light projects too. We used the creative lettering techniques Heidi Shorts taught to work on a black light Names of Jesus project with our Sunday School class!

Music to nurse by(if you can believe)

Review by new mom of twins (Posted on 11/6/11)

I'm a new mom of twins. A friend gave me this DVD as a present. I thought it was a bit premature, but she told me I might enjoy watching the bonus feature of watching Gloria draw to music while I'm nursing the twins.
And - I do.
In the middle of the night I find it soothing and relaxing.
Loved the music and art commentary

Review by artrus (Posted on 11/5/11)

We're a musical family. We sing and play together at home, church, senior centers, etc.
So we were most interested in the music. Breathing Room's music is beautiful. We love the arrangements, and think the theme song is excellent.
One of our favorite parts was in the bonus section where Gloria draws the nativity scene in chalk art while the music is being playing and sung - a special worship time!
Creative Lettering

Review by notxmas (Posted on 11/5/11)

My 2 kids - ages 7 and 10 liked the story a lotand wanted to do the drawing. We did 'Rejoice' with Heidi Shorts. We didn't have those special pencils, so we used regular colored pencils.It worked. It's a great lesson.
Now the kids want the special pencils and the black light. That will be a Christmas surprise.
Not just another Christmas story

Review by itsmelord (Posted on 11/5/11)

Every year I try to find something different to use at Christmas to drive the meaning home. Some stuff is too secular. Other stuff is boring.
The story is told with beautiful chalk art. But then, the black light manger and angel sky at the end is gorgeous. My kids thought it was a WOW, so I tried it with our homeschool coop - same thing.
They all wanted to 'do' the black light art lessons. It worked.
A very special way to celebrate Christmas.
