This week we’re featuring Paws & Tales on Minno!

About Paws & Tales

Paws & Tales follows a group of friendly forest animals – CJ, Staci, Ned, Gooz and Marsha – as they go on adventures in their hometown of Wildwood and learn how core lessons from the Bible apply to their everyday lives.

What Parents Should Know

Paws & Tales was originally a book before it was adapted into a radio drama and then eventually into a television series! The original book, Paw Paw Chuck’s Big Ideas in the Bible, was written by Chuck Swindoll and Ross Vera. The animated series, available on Minno, was produced by Cliff McDowell – who also made Adventures in Booga Booga Land!

Paws & Tales is fun, engaging, and applicable for the whole family. Kids will relate to CJ, Staci, Ned, Gooz, and Marsha – who may not always make the right choices, but learn core lessons from their actions. This series is a great way to foster conversation around what it means to apply the Bible to your everyday life – whether you’re a kid or an adult!
