Do you know Hermie? I first knew him last March, when the “I Am Special Because…” episode was played before my daughter’s graduation program had started. This to entertain the early birds while waiting for the others to arrive. I met him again when my daughter borrowed Hermie & Friends VCDs from her teacher earlier this school year. I noticed my daughter enjoyed watching it.
If you don’t know Hermie yet, he is a caterpillar cartoon character created by Max Lucado. He is the main character in the Hermie & Friends series. To give you an idea of his looks, I grabbed his photo from tommynelson.com.
Isn’t he’s cute? This is probably the reason why daughter enjoys watching his videos.
In our recent visit to Philippine Christian Book Store I bought my daughter her first copy of Hermie’s video as a reward for her BIG stars in school. The episode is entitled “Hermie and the High Sea.” I checked YouTube if a trailer of the episode is available and luckily there is. So I’m sharing it here.
I recommend this movie for parents who have kids who enjoy watching cartoons. Hermie and The High Sea is about having faith in God. At first I thought the movie is based on Noah’s ark in which Noah was asked by God to build an ark. But the lesson of the movie is based on Jesus’ words from the mountain-side in Matthew 6 which is about relying on God to care for our every need, a lesson which every child should learn.
The DVD copy which cost Php 250 at PCBS contains bonus materials such as coloring pages, trivia game/quiz, read-along: “You Can Pray”, sing-along: Keeping the Faith and more.
