My Young David Christian Review:

As a mom, I am always on the lookout for great movies, shows, and shorts that my kids and grandkids can watch without me worrying about the content. This first short fills the bill for great content, beautiful animation, and godly entertainment.

Finally, as a mom to an autistic son enamored with Disney, it has been hard to find suitable offerings that capture his interest. I am pleased to tell you that he loved the Young David Warrior short!
