About the Movie
(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 you 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.
This is the fourth in a series of DVD’s: Believe, Love & Faith. These 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. Now they’re out to spread his message of hope to the entire bird world!
Look for these new titles in 2015: Kindness, Forgiveness & Hope.
Another beautifully created video for children. Which is is why Iesodo has made the top 10 kid’s DVD release list. I think people are looking for something good in this world. As it gets harder and harder to find decent family television we are blessed to have companies like Zaya Toonz, llc. creating wonderful video’s like these. We don’t even subscribe to cable or satellite television anymore because I don’t want to pay for garbage I don’t want my family watching any how. Why are all the good family shows getting cancelled. I miss Highway to Heaven, 7th Heaven, Little House on the Prairie and shows of that caliber. Instead we have reality TV, Two & a Half Men, Two Broke Girls, The Big Bang Theory and stuff like that…heck even the commercials are inappropriate a good part of the day. Sorry back to the movie.
Zaya Toonz assembled directors from shows like “Muppet Babies,” “My Little Pony Tales,” “Ed, Ed, and Eddy,” and “Toy Story,” “Toy Story 2” and “A Bug’s Life”. You know with these creative minds working together that this will be a great series and it is! My children love our church and love learning more about Jesus and when I can allow them to watch television on occasion and learn about our Savior at the same time I consider that a win-win situation.
These are not just video’s either they come with awesome discussion guides too. They help you feed your children even more by helping you talk with them about Jesus. Things like telling them that we hang lights on the Christmas tree because Jesus was born to be the Light of the world. In the section called Explore the meaning, we are given things to research together, like:
#1. In a popular Old Testament Story, Noah uses a specific kind of bird to bring him a
message about the flood. What kind of bird was this? (Genesis 8:8-12)
-This bird symbolized to Noah that God keeps His promises. What else does a dove with an olive
Read Luke 2:13-14. Why is peace something God wants to give us? What is the greatest gift
God has given us that also brings us peace?
There is also a section called Connect to the story with a list of activities to do together as a family. as well as the Reflect the Message section with activities the family can do together to reflect the story of Jesus. You can see the entire discussion guide for this video HERE.
There are also coloring pages, cards, crafts and more on their website.
