From creator of Veggie Tales® Phil Vischer, these fun and easy-to-read picture books based on the popular video series Buck Denver Asks… What’s in the Bible? teach children about character and virtue through beloved Bible stories.

Buck Denver’s Giant Robot Suit: A Lesson in Friendship

What does it mean to be a good friend?

Buck Denver wants to be friends with God, so he makes a giant robot suit to be closer to Him. To help Buck understand the true meaning of friendship, his friends share their favorite Bible stories. First, Sunday School Lady tells him all about David and Jonathan and their loyalty to one another in tough times. Then Pastor Paul talks about how Jesus offers friendship to each of us. In the end, Buck learns that God uses friends to help us grow stronger and our friendship with Jesus helps us grow closer to God!

 

Buck Denver’s Bad, Bad Day: A Lesson in Thankfulness

What does it mean to be thankful?

Buck Denver has had a bad, bad day, so his friends take him on a quest to learn about thankfulness. Soon, he’s on a ride with Sunday School Lady, Marcy, and Brother Louie to learn about Jehoshaphat and Lazarus. In the end, Buck learns that on good days AND bad days, God is good and worthy of our thanks-every day, no matter what!

 

My Impressions:

I really liked these two books. They were full of energy — from the prose to the illustrations — and are perfect for kids ages 4-8. I think boys, especially, will enjoy these stories featuring Buck Denver, his friend Marcy, and Sunday School Lady. In each book Buck Denver is searching for something to make his life more complete. In the Giant Robot Suit he wants strength and to get closer to God. In Bad, Bad Day he is looking for something to make him happy. In each instance, Sunday School Lady has a remedy. The examples she gives aren’t mere stories, but up close and personal encounters with Bible characters and Jesus Himself. The answer to Buck’s dilemma is always rooted in relationships with others and God. But the end of the story is only the beginning for you and your child. There are questions pointing back to the story and to situations in real life, scripture recommendations to go further in study, and a verse to memorize to reinforce the message of the book. I think these books will become favorites in your house.

Recommended.

Audience: kids ages 4-8 and their parents.
