"...even my 'older' two kids (ages 15 and 13) enjoyed watching the DVD with my 7-year-old although they might not want to admit it! They thought it was really neat how the stories that the children told were actually the true stories of what actually happened in history and the Bible while the characters in the DVD and their adventures are fictional. I personally liked it because that made it easier for my 7-year-old to understand which parts actually happened and which parts were made up." WH, Homeschool Parent
"The art and animation in this series is exceptional and the story is captivating. Both my 12 year old and 5 year old granddaughters loved it. They are already asking for more. My girls were thrilled with having the opportunity to use this curriculum and are eager for more. I enjoyed the clear instructions given in the Teacher's Guide and appreciated the amount of thought and study that went into preparing this resource. There is much to enjoy here."

"I love the way the curriculum integrates a variety of subjects in a seamless manner. My children love the DVD episodes and are really drawn into learning." LS, Homeschool Parent
"Professionally crafted by award winning artisans, Friends and Heroes combines the best in video entertainment with godly values, and a wholesome standard that can only be gleaned from the pages of Scripture. Certainly, without exaggeration, no homeschool video library would be complete without Friends and Heroes." Paul A. Suarez, Publisher, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
