MY REVIEW
The Crossmaker is one of the most beautiful Easter DVDs for children I have seen. The first 16 minutes is a fantastic story of a boy and how he came to be at the crucifixion. The pictures are chalk art and I must say it is so very moving and touching. The Crossmaker really holds the interest of anyone who watches, but gives the full Easter story and is very powerful. If this DVD didn’t have anything else, but this story I would highly recommend it, but there is so much more to watch and enjoy.
Next on the DVD are three art lessons and they are fantastic! The first one is Creative Lettering which is 28 minutes, by Heidi Shorts, and then the next is from the Art Teacher Pat Knepley. She shows a step-by-step lesson using chalk pastels, which is 32 minutes. The last art lesson is by Jim Pence. He does water colors and that lesson is 25 minutes. All of these lessons have a Bible theme with a short talk about Jesus and doing the right things.
The bonus features have lots of super things in it also. You will hear the artists Jan Roper and Kevin Dukes singing and performing songs to go along with the extras. The chalk artist Gloria Kohlmann draws a beautiful picture of the Easter story. It’s just amazing and you will be drawn into the music, picture and story.
Another part I really like is called Watch and Hear; it is a simple plan of salvation for children. It is so easy to understand and very creative.
The Easter Story-The Crossmaker can be enjoyed by anyone three and older and the art lessons will be enjoyed by anyone six and older.
I highly recommend this wonderful DVD for an Easter gift to be loved and enjoyed by you and your children/grandchildren for years to come.

I love Easter DVD's especially for children. In today's modern church too many are striving for "relavance", trying to draw in the seeker with hype. Unfortunately the simple message of Jesus and His Gospel is getting watered down & muddled as a result. Children are like sponges. They will soak up this beautiful story just as it is. I'm so glad a movie like this is available.
