"We bought this dvd for viewing on a road trip but it has become a staple in our 2 year old's life. Not all of the songs have actual motions but there are children laughing and singing and moving around and she is enthralled. She sings along with the show but also sings them on her own throughout the day. We have more of the Cedarmont videos and I love the fact that they do not repeat songs on different videos."
Our kids love it -- but where are the "actions"?

"Our 20-month-old and 4.5-year-old love this video that contains many of the favorite Bible songs I remember from my childhood. The music and singing is good quality, and the scenes behind the music are interesting -- children playing, acting out some of the words, like rock climbing during "Climb up Sunshine Mountain" -- even a farm full of animals during the Noah song.
Unfortunately, only a few of the songs feature all of the actions (hand motions and body movement) that make these songs favorites for children. It's such a shame, because the primary reason I bought this DVD was to encourage full-body participation and movement instead of passive viewing.
Still, the production is good-quality (not overproduced and grating like the DVD of the same name by Golden Books). When our kids leave it on and walk away, it actually makes decent background music, as children's music goes.
To be sure, this is the best children's music DVD we own (yes, even more popular with our kids than the Wiggles) -- that is, until we find a DVD of action Bible songs that actually features the actions."
Captiviating and gets her moving

"My 18 month old loves this video. She dances, marches, and "sings" along. She wants to watch it every day, and I don't even mind because the songs are catchy, classic and its fun to see her having fun. She'll literally turn the TV off during Barney, Wiggles and other music videos for kids...she doesn't really care for TV at all but the "Cedarmont Kids" is the one thing she will watch! (We like "Toddler Tunes" and "Silly Songs" though, by the same singing, dancing kids just a tad better but I had to buy this for some variety on the tube!)"
