Welcome to Color Me a RainbowThis fun-loving series was created to help children know who Jesus is and how very much He loves them and wants to be their best friend. Child-led crafts, original music videos, Bible memory rhythms, and interviews with children are woven together in each video to communicate the theme. The hosts of the series are Jana Wacker and puppets Froggie, Crow, and Turtle. Through their interaction and modeling, they teach good manners, polite communication, Christian morals, character qualities, Biblical truths, responsibility, respect, and obedience. The puppets do learn from the consequences of their bad choices. Each program includes interviews with international children. Their spontaneous answers are a delight to adults and children alike. These videos are great to use for family devotions. The Bible Memory Rhythms were created by Susie Newcomer. This 13-week series first aired in 1987 on the American Christian Television System (ACTS). Linda King (Shepherd & Associates) was the writer/producer/puppeteer.
