My Thoughts:

I love stumbling across wonderful faith-based videos that I can share with my girls.  And, recently my search led me to the Auto-B-Good animated, which has won 5 Emmy Awards.  Within days of reaching out to the folks at Rising Star Studios, I received Auto-B-Good: Fruitful Pursuits on DVD review.  This is just one DVD in the 9-DVD collection.

Just by seeing the cover art of this DVD online, I knew my girls would enjoy watching it, as they are into cars and trucks, thanks in part to the recent and oh so popular animated movies starring talking vehicles.  And, I was right.  As soon as I started playing this DVD, the girls couldn't turn away.  It also helped in that each of the episodes that make up the 4-episode DVD are short in length, around 8-10 minutes.  

While the episodes are short in length, that doesn't mean that the stories are not filled with positive messages and wholesome values, including the importance of forgiveness, putting others first and not being selfish and not judging others and treating people the way you would want to be treated.  All of these values are shared in a fun way, and will have young viewers learning while being entertained.

We have only had this DVD for a short time, but it has become a favorite of my girls, and one they ask to watch time and again.  And, I can't say "No," as I find myself enjoying this animated series about talking cars, and the wholesome messages each episode shares with young children.  I will definitely be checking out the other DVDs in this Emmy award-winning series, and sharing with my girls.  

If you like sharing wonderful faith-based series with your children, that not entertain and teach valuable life lessons, but also open the doors to talking further with your child about what they saw and learned, then you will want to check out this and other titles in the Auto-B-Good series.
