Win a Free Copy of “The Solomon Bunch” DVD!

posted by Nell Minow

The Solomon Bunch is a sweet, gently funny story of a group of children who ponder the meaning of Proverbs 18:13 “He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him,” but don’t fully understand it until they discover their own mistake in judging what they thought was criminal plot.  Its kids-view story-telling makes it family-friendly and its low-key lessons will provide a good opening for discussion of the difference between being smart and being wise and the importance of questioning your assumptions.  It is especially suitable for church groups and Sunday schools.

I have five copies to give away!  Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Solomon” in the subject line and tell me about talent show you attended or participated in.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only).  I will pick five winners at random on February 9.  Good luck!

Pride
The ingredients for this film were so irresistible that it is a unexpected bonus to find that it is so much better than it needed to be. It's based on a true story of extraordinary kindness, generosity, and friendship and it stars a bunch of adorable English actors (Imelda Staunton, Bill Nighy) w
