Professor Wizzy Gizmo invented a machine called the Gizmovision. The Gizmovision machine brings books to life, telling the readers and listeners the “who, what, why, and how” of the story. Though the characters are fictional, they are relatable for kids, and explore true life events with real questions that kids (and adults) want answered.
Wizzy Gizmo Book One: Who Created Everything? is a fun fictional story that looks at true events in the bible. It explores biblical history during the first six days of creation. Wizzy Gizmo places the bible on his machine and he and the kids head off on a fun exploration into learning about Creation in Genesis chapter one. The story is continued in Wizzy Gizmo Book Two: In His Image.
For the purpose of this review, I had my oldest son read the book aloud to the younger children. They were all fascinated with the bible adventure. On of my sons is an audio-visual learner and he drew out parts of the story as he listened too.
There are bright colorful illustrations in the book and dialog between the characters. The kids really enjoyed the pictures and it helped the kids imagination to follow along and keep their interest. I appreciated the book contained a lot of scriptures from the bible and then explained them to the kids. The kids really felt like they were part of the story.
The book contains study questions and also a huge list of vocabulary words. I really liked the vocabulary words for furthering their understanding, spelling, and questions. This was a handy resource. This book would go along great with a unit study of creation where you ad in science, history, math, literature, art, field trips (Creation Museum, farms, zoos, science lab, planetarium, machine shop, etc.), and hands on application of the learning. Perhaps let the kids build their own Gizmovision machine to travel back in time to learn about biblical history.
We enjoyed book one, and I would love to have the additional resources and keep going with the learning. Book two is available and new books are being developed. There is also currently an audio drama of book one with more on the way. The flashcards New Testiment Series look amazing! The cards are BIG and have tons of bible study and historical helps on them. All of this curriculum would make a great program for a homeschool, a Sunday school class, or bible club too. I think kids of all ages would really enjoy them.
