Max Lucado’s Hermie & Friends series is a fun, upbeat, wholesome, and creative show for kids to watch. The kids and I enjoy the bright characters who entertain and teach Biblical truth in an easy-to-understand way. The catchy tunes stick with the kids and I often hear my kids whistling or humming them around the house. The characters stretch kids imagination (talking bugs!) while pushing them to think through their little lives and how they can love, obey, be kind, etc… In this episode, the theme of forgiveness and apologizing is well portrayed. And just for silly fun, don’t forget to watch the cartoon short “Little Red Hermie in the Hood”! Adults will enjoy these family friendly DVDs just as much as the kids!
When Flo gets her own TV talk show, she is positively thrilled! She has to think about what to say, what to wear, and who to invite as guests. What she isn't thinking about are other people's feelings. After insulting every guest on her show, she finally realizes that she needs to apologize for the means things she said. Flo learns that words are very powerful. In fact, the words "I'm sorry" can make all the difference. Children will learn that by saying you're sorry, you are asking foregiveness and fixing your friends with another person.
