Curriculum Review - Large Group/Small Group - Lil' K & Johnny Rogers from KidMo!

Lil' K and Johnny Rogers are another DVD based curriculum with high energy and a great deal of creativity from KidMo!  They say these curriculum are, "interactive media-based resources" and they do seem to be exactly that. Allow me to share with you some information about Lil' K and Johnny Rogers!
    <!--d-->Bible Superheroes

  • Price - $149 for one DVD of Lil' K and $149 for one DVD of Johnny Rogers - each with five complete lessons
  • Scope - Topical
  • Available for 3's -5's for Lil' K and Grades 1-6 for Johnny Rogers
Strengths -

  • Strong emphasis on kids living what they learn
  • Strong focus on mentoring and developing relationships among kids and with their Small Group Leaders
  • DVD curriculum with the option for you to involve the kids in the telling of the Bible lesson - the one lesson I saw had very creative ideas for this!
  • Parent materials are included so they are able to continue the learning at home throughout the week
  • Colorful graphics
  • You are able to preview each series to determine which ones are the best "fit" for your ministry.
  • Quality DVDs with high energy
  • Additional options to extend the teaching time and to involve the children in a more intentional and engaging way.
  • Preschool focuses on building foundations of faith and elementary focuses on transformation based on a Biblical worldview.
Would like to see - 
  • More affordable pricing - while I appreciate the quality of the dvds, $149 for five lessons for each age level seems a bit high.
  • Quarterly service projects to "Put Feet to Their Faith"
  • Teacher devotions
KidMo's Lil' K and Johnny Rogers are written with the goal of intentionally engaging children so they are able to remember, understand and live God's Word for genuinely changed lives. If you are looking for a video/dvd based curriculum, this curriculum is well worth taking a look at to see if it may be a good "fit" for your ministry! Kidmo says they are committed to developing resources which, "initiate personal, social and cultural transformation by connecting kids with a Biblical worldview. We believe kids are world-changers and their spiritual foundation is set before the age of 12. By fostering a Biblical worldview within them, we are initiating global transformation for years to come."
