I absolutely loved the beauty of this story- not just the illustrations which were a piece of art all on their own, but with the beautiful words too. Needless to say, when I heard they were coming out with a DVD and CD to go along with the book, I was thrilled! Take a look:
The Animated Short Film: Featuring beautifully animated illustrations adapted from the book, The Biggest Story: The Animated Short Film will captivate children and parents alike as they see how all the classic stories in the Bible connect to Scripture’s overarching message about God’s glorious plan to redeem his rebellious people.
The Audio Book: This audio book of The Biggest Story—written and narrated also by the best-selling author Kevin DeYoung—leads kids and parents alike on an exciting journey through the Bible, connecting the dots from the garden of Eden to Christ's death on the cross to the new heaven and new earth.
Kevin DeYoung is senior pastor of University Reformed Church in East Lansing, MI, husband to Trisha, and father to seven children.
If you loved the beauty of the book, you most certainly will love the animated short film too! One of the problems for my son with the book itself was that it is definitely longer than your average picture book. Not a huge deal for most, it was a book that can be read and enjoyed over several days. My son however has quite the short attention span for most things, so while he enjoyed the book, it was hard to keep him focused on it. The short film allowed him to take it all in at once! Again, we see that same beauty that we fell in love with in the book, but in film! Though this may have been made for children, I personally loved it as well. These are not your typical cutesy illustrations, but stunning works of art! This short film is a welcome addition to the book, but also stands alone as well.
As an added bonus, both also include a gorgeous double sided poster with artwork adapted from the book!
If you love The Biggest Story already, these are going to take your experience to the next level. If you have not yet experienced it, these will introduce you to a story of beauty like you've never seen before. The Biggest Story Animated Short Film and Audio Book are available to purchase now.
