I'm heading out early today for a niece's birthday part FAR away, so I thought I'd post this review for some of you moms.
I just received Max Lucado's Hermie and Friends DVD in the mail. Whenever Lucado switched from books to movies is beyond me, but he's done well. Skeeter and the Mystery of the Lost Mosquito Treasure kept my kids on the couch.
The movie is all about this little mosquito who has always felt like less because his stinger is crooked. When his "perfect" brother comes home, everybody fawns over him. His stinger is long and straight, plus he's a famous explorer. When the brothers discover a treasure map from their father, they decide to work together to find the treasure. In the process, they discover that they're each special and are formed the way they are for a special purpose.
It's a cute little movie set in a garden. Like I said, both the 4 year old and the 2 1/2 year old sat down and watched it. I liked letting them because there's the spiritual element to the movie which I usually only see in Veggie Tales (yes, I know there are more out there but I don't have them). The story is fun to watch but it also left the kids with the moral that God made us all unique and being different is good.
I like that. :-)
Do any of you have these Hermie movies? Did you even know Max Lucado was making cartoons now? Any other good movie suggestions for me?
