A word about reviews and blogging:
Companies regularly contact me to write reviews and give away their products. I, in turn, regularly turn down anything I don't feel will benefit our homeschool. It's that simple. I will never review or give away anything we have not used and enjoyed in our home.
I am so proud to be a Tommy Nelson Mommy! The products I receive from Tommy Nelson are always of the highest quality and I recommend them without reservation to you. It's a huge world of resources for children out there, and I hope to provide you with reviews of some of the best!
Over the past several years my children have always enjoyed the "Hermie" movies and books by Max Lucado. Our church had quite a generous stash of them in the library, which I think my children had checked out most of the time!
The latest Hermie DVD, "BEEhaving is B-E-S-T" : Behaving Pleases God! is a new favorite in our home. It consists of two episodes: Buzby the Misbehaving Bee and Buzby and the Grumblebees.
If you're look for QUALITY character education material for your young children (target age is 4-7), our family highly recommends this DVD. When ours arrived in the mail, GMan immediately snagged it and layed on the sofa -- watching and giggling for the next hour.
From the publisher, Tommy Nelson:
In Buzby, the Misbehaving Bee, the garden is all abuzz thanks to its newest resident: Buzby, the self-proclaimed “king of bees,” who refuses to follow any of the Garden Golden Rules. Soon Buzby has managed to bug every citizen of the garden—and Hermie and his pals don’t know what to do. But through an unexpected act of kindness (not to mention some intervention from the real King of the garden), Buzby finally learns that nobody is too cool for the rules—and that rules are actually pretty helpful!In Buzby and the Grumblebees, newly reformed rule-follower Buzby receives a visit from his niece Beebee and his nephew Buddy. But the two little bees are full of bad behavior, and Buzby enlists the help of Hermie and his friends to show the kids all kinds of bugs behaving badly. And the two quickly see how uncomfortable things become for everyone when bugs don’t get enough sleep or clean up after themselves. Soon Beebee and Buddy decide that behaving in the hive is the only way to fly!
Tommy Nelson is giving away one copy of BEEhaving is B-E-S-T to a reader of Homegrown Learners. To enter, simply leave me a comment answering this question:
