Disclosure: I received a copy of Iesodo Joy free for an honest review which I’ve given. My opinions may differ from yours.
Iesodo (Yay-Sa-Doe) is a wise white dove whose name means “The Way of Jesus.” He and his feathered friends bring your favorite New Testament stories to life in a whole new way including this special re-imagining of the Nativity story. Let your heart take flight and tweet along to holiday carols and all-new songs!
Festivities are in full swing as the flock prepares to celebrate Iesodo’s birthday! The Cypress Tree is decked out with holly berries and excitement is in the air. Everyone gathers as Rocky shares the incredible story of Iesodo’s birth.
Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love making the house cheery with all of my Christmas decorations. I love filling the house with Christmas music. I get out all of my Christmas books and movies. We’ve all got our favorite traditions during the Christmas season. Joy, the latest episode in the Iesodo DVD series releases October 21, 2014 and is a great new DVD to add to your Christmas celebrations.
With all of the commercialization of Christmas, it is easy for kids to get caught up in their lists to Santa and “wants.” Help them remember the true meaning of Christmas with Joy.
Iesodo’s friends are preparing to celebrate his birthday. And as they are decorating, Rocky shares the story of Iesodo’s birth. This is a retelling of the Christmas story using birds as the characters. It includes lots of beautiful music as well as a wonderfully animated story your children are sure to love.
Joe and Molly are expecting a baby and must return to the nest where Joe was born. Their flight is long and hard and when the finally arrive, there is no room for them in the tree. This is reminiscent of Joseph and Mary traveling far and finding no room at the inn. The shepherds, King Herod and the wise men all make appearances in this story as well. All in all, it is a sweet retelling of the Christmas story that your little ones will love.

I think one of the best things about the Iesodo series is the fact that their website has so much to offer. Children can meet the characters, find fun activities to do, watch videos and more. Each DVD also comes with a discussion guide available as a PDF file. The Joy guide includes questions to answer about the story as well as ways to dig deeper into the Bible with your kids. It also gives you ideas for fun activities to do with your children during the Christmas season. I definitely recommend adding Joy to your family’s Christmas DVD viewing.
