Ask my kids what their favorite vegetable is and they will tell you “Bob and Larry.”
We’ve grown up on watching Veggie Tales, and although they learn stories from the bible, they don’t really understand what the bible is or what it’s for. And I didn’t know where to start explaining.
Well, now with the help of Phil Vischer, (father of Bob and Larry,) this is a conversation I can open up with my kids.“What’s in the Bible” is a new DVD series that focuses on, you guessed it, teaching kids about the bible.
Thanks to Tyndale my family and I were able to check out the first 2 episodes of “What’s in the Bible.”
Being so used to Veggie Tales I will admit that I was a little disappointed when the show started and I saw that the characters were puppets and not similar to the animated characters my kids and I have grown to love. But as I got further into the show I didn’t notice it anymore. My mind was focused on the great information that they were giving.
The first episode explains in great depth what the bible is. How the bible is a book made up of many books. 🙂 We also get to meet the wonderful cast of characters, and characters is the right word! In addition to Phil Vischer himself, our guide is Man of News Buck Denver. With the help of brothers Clive and Ian (who has a love for ponies,) Sunday School Lady, Chuckwagon and more, Buck answers many questions that even myself as an adult have.
After that, most episodes explain a book of the bible.
In true Phil Vischer fashion, “What’s in the Bible” features toe tapping and clever tunes that will have your kids bobbing their heads and singing along.

So, what was the final verdict in our house? My kids loved it!
My son loved the character Ian, and cracked up laughing a countless number of times. My daughter adored all the music and would try to sing along with it, even the songs she hadn’t heard yet.
If you are looking for something to help you explain the bible to you kids than I highly encourage you to check out this series. It’s available in Christian book stores this month or you can order it from the “What’s in the Bible” website.
And one of you lucky readers will win a certificate entitling you to receive both the 1st and 2nd episode of the show!
