Skeeter and the Mystery of the Lost Mosquito Treasure would be a wonderful addition to a children's church library. It's part of a series of dvds by Max Lucado, that help teach about morals to young children. I think I would enjoy seeing some of the other dvds also.
My son who is 19 months seemed to think it was cute. My older son, who is almost 12, thought it was kind of boring, though. I think it would be better suited for kids under 10.
It is the story of brothers and how different they are and how special each of them are. One of the brothers, who are mosquitoes, seems to be perfect and everyone loves him. However, the other brother has a very crooked stinger. He feels unloved and he can't even fly straight. The perfect brother is in search of a treasure, but needs help from someone. The only person who ends up being able to help him is his brother with the crooked stinger.
The story is based a couple verses from Psalms about being unique. It is a great story to watch with young kids. The dvd opens up time for discussion with kids about values and how everyone is special in their own way. I would recommend this to anyone with small children. It would especially be a great dvd for a church.
You can buy or read more about this dvd at Amazon.
