*We were given Owlegories Vol. 6 to help us facilitate our review. All thoughts and opinions are honest and our own based on our experience.
Timmy sitting on my lap looked at me and said with confidence, “Ohhhwleges”. Not understanding him immediately I said, tell me again. He repeated it except this time he said, hoo, hoo, hoo. The lightbulb clicked on, and I said, oh, you want to watch Owlegories. His eyes brightened and ran to pick up the newest vol. 6, The Wind, The Moon and The Rainbow off of our movie shelf.
Titus turned on the tv, then opened the DVD case, switched the tv to movie watching mode and pushed the play button. Cuddled with both boys in my lap we settled into an impromptu family movie morning. The joys of homeschooling are occasionally easing into the day after a rough night.
Our favorite owlettes Joey, Nora, Violet, Gus, and Twitch took us on more adventures to find God’s truth for our lives. In the first episode ‘The Wind’ the young adventurers must be courageous to discover how God is like the wind. Devlin and Fink continue to thwart the young adventurer’s mission.
Songs, poems and stories that have nothing to do with the moon puzzle Nora in In ‘The Moon’. The owlettes classroom takes on a strange transformation as they must figure out three ways God is like the moon and report back to the wise ole’ professor. It is a musical episode guaranteed to get your toes tapping and your heart singing. Why is Nora puzzled, why is the classroom going crazy and what does the moon have to do with God? These questions are all answered in this episode.
Super owlettes to the rescue in the third and final episode of Owlegories vol. 6 – ‘The Rainbow.’ Before beginning their mission, the Professor leads them in their pledge “We love to learn about creation, it helps us to become wise. God’s nature is all around us if we look through heavens eyes”. Sinking boats, Devlin and Fink attempt to prevent the young owls from completing their mission to discover how God is like a rainbow.
Every single episode of Owlegories has been kid tested and parent approved in our house. Mark and I find ourselves laughing right along with our kids. When our kids ask us if they can watch it, I do not see myself wincing or looking for something else to do while they are watching it. It is indeed a family favorite in our house.
