Comment: “Our extended family got together and the kids made their Operation Christmas Child boxes which are filled with items kids need and are sent worldwide! But first they watched Unwrap the Gift, a DVD featuring Mary Rice Hopkins who teaches the kids, through music and puppets, about loving and giving to others. Thank you, Mary, for the amazing video!” (L. Bowman - 11/15)

Previously had seen this on TV. The DVD is so much clearer and enjoyable. The bonus features are great extras. Would recommend this DVD to people with young children.

I gave this to my Kindergarten teacher friend, Mary Shrock, for Christmas, knowing she would love to use it with her charges!
When I taught Kindergarten @ St. Michael's Academy,and her oldest was in my class, Mary came in one day to visit about reading skills. Out of my mouth poured prophetic words--you will be teaching kindergarten here one day. It was some 4-5 years later after she went back to school in early childhood education, that she was asked to teach Kindergarten there.

This DVD is a "must-have" for every church and church! The clip which partners with Operation Christmas Child can be used to introduce the shoe box ministry at church. Kids LOVE the refreshingly new Christmas songs on the DVD. My personal favorite is "Candy Cane" which has a message that will last a lifetime in the hearts of kids.
