Just a hunch, but I started thinking it when she grabbed me by the hand and said, “Walk! C’mon! Walk!” She’s impatient and bossy.
I have seen lots of good television programs dealing with patience, but I’m a real stickler about the programs I’ll allow Grace to watch. First, I don’t allow anything with commercials. I don’t want Grace making the buying decisions in my house; her father and I are capable. Second, Grace doesn’t watch anything with bad language or bad behavior.
There are three groups of programs that I absolutely trust for Grace to watch: Sesame Street, Barney, and Veggie Tales.
Abe & the Amazing Promise is actually two stories in one. The first story is the tale of Abraham and Sarah from the Bible. The second is a musical cartoon called Blunders in Boo-Boo-Ville. I like the story, and I think Grace will enjoy it for many years to come.
When we watched, Grace wasn’t really interested in the Abraham story. It moves too slowly for a toddler, but I bet that older kids would love it. Blunders in Boo-Boo-Ville is quick and loud and full of songs that kept Grace’s attention for longer periods of time.
You can preview Abe and the Amazing Promise. I think you’ll like it. It’s a good show. It’s not an annoying kids’ show. By the end of the DVD, I even found myself singing along with the songs.
