The Legend of the Candy Cane

We watched The Legend of the Candy Cane (I got my copy from Koorong) DVD today before bedtime. I was really looking forward to it because I was unable to get the book locally this year. However, I have to be honest and say I was a bit disappointed by the movie. The sound quality wasn't that great, the pictures were nothing like the images on the cover, and there was LOTS of singing. Which would include a goat, a dog, an owl, and some really annoying chickens. No joke. The kids enjoyed the movie, and were excited to see a variety of Bible story pictures, and even more excited that they knew who those Biblical characters were. The story line wasn't bad, all though I did expect it to be a bit different. The kids walked away impressed that a candy can could mean so many things, but even more impressed that someone would give a whole candy store away. I think they were just dreaming of someone giving it all to them so they could chomp away and then bounce off walls to be honest! Anyway, maybe we'll go for the book, they now have them in stock and I can have one shipped to me from the mainland.
