JellyTelly - Christian Online TV series for kids

A couple weeks ago, while reading a post on the wonderful Bookie Woogie blog, I learned about JellyTelly. JellyTelly is an online Christian TV series by VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer. Kids learn about the Bible by watching the free daily shows. The short segments feature cartoons, puppets and real-life characters. Focus on the Family partners with Vischer on the show. While the daily shows are free for all to watch, subscribers can access all the content on the site. Here's a clip from the show.

There's a verse of the week, episodes like the one above where kids can learn about books of the Bible, JellyTelly jokes and a silly Sunday School lady. My daughter likes to watch the show, and I highly recommend it as a useful and entertaining resource for Christian families.

This month Tyndale House Publishers released a DVD video series called What's In The Bible? Many of the JellyTelly characters appear in the DVDs. We haven't had a chance to watch them yet, but I think that they sound like a wonderful way to learn about the Bible at home.

Have you watched JellyTelly or the new DVD series? What did you think?
