Owlegories Vol.3

Owlegories Vol.3
The Fire : The Duck : The Seasons

Olwegories vol 3For their third volume, the Owlegories creators keep it fresh with three new thrilling adventures.

Starting with “The Fire,” where the pupils learn about pure gold and the references in the Bible about how God refines us like pure gold. The primary verse linked to this episode is Hebrews 12:28-29. It’s very cool how they blend the technical/scientific aspects of refinement and the biblical parallels.

The second tale, “The Duck,” features Silas Robertson (aka Uncle Si. The scenery is quite fitting, as the owls find themselves deep in the swamps where they learn about working together and how God has enabled us to do so with the gifts of life, salvation through Jesus, and a third “gift” to be revealed at just the right time (no spoilers here). The key verse in this episode is 1 Peter 4:10. The presence of Uncle Si adds to the entertainment with a grandpa like figure that many are familiar with (along with the iconic green cup).

The third episode, “The Seasons,” have your young-lings exploring the seasons through a “souped-up” simulator. The “S6” is a high-tech simulator that assists the young owls understand three lessons God teaches us through the seasons. This episode really enforces the main point of the series overall and that is seeing God in creation. The lessons take the biblical text and relate it to something that they can tangibly experience.

The “Recap” at the end of every episodes helps you unpack the meaning behind each episode. It is a great resource for parents and/or Sunday school teachers. However, it is not as interesting for a toddler to listen to another adult on the screen so it may take a bit of interaction in person to keep them engaged. One way to engage them, might be to count the number of “okay’s” that Uncle Si uses in his recap.

Eph 2:8 – For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God (NKJV).
