Meet Iesodo, (YAY-sa-doe) a highly acclaimed Telly and Accolade Award winning series featuring a cast of animated birds who live in a Cypress Tree on the shores of Galilee.
As soon as I saw the cover of the DVD for this series, I immediately thought of Rio! My kids loved that movie so I knew they would be interested in Iesodo. The movie has cutting edge imagery that is somewhat unexpected for a Christian DVD series. (If you’ve seen/heard of Gaither’s Pond, you’ll know what I mean…).
Iesodo, means “The way of Jesus”, and the name of cute white dove that is the star of the show. He is a wise and gentle bird that reminds me of a kind, old grandfather. What I like best about the series is the solid biblical teaching, which is what kids need more of these days!
With each and every story in the series, Iesodo and his cute feathered friends “present the essence of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a winsome, compelling way” through music and adventure (MovieGuide.org).
Meet Iesodo (pronounced Yay-Sa-Doe), a wise dove whose name means “The Way of Jesus”! He and his lovable feathered friends live in the Holy Land in a beautiful Cypress Tree on the shores of a vast Lake (or as we know it, the Sea of Galilee). The birds are an unlikely group of friends, and though they have their differences, they have one thing in common: since they met Iesodo, their lives have never been the same!
I was definitely interested in this series after reading The Examiner’s Review of Iesodo. Definitely take a moment to read it if you haven’t seen it yet!
You can find more information about the series and the characters on their website www.iesodo.com. You’ll also find fun stuff for the kids like printable bird masks, coloring pages and more in their Fun & Games section on the website.
I highly recommend these DVDs to any family, but especially those that find Christian values and morals to be important. You won’t have to “pre-screen” these!
