What is “Ranger Mike”? The Ranger Mike DVDs are video adventures for kids in the 6-12 years old range. Our friend, Mike Snavely, produced them in response to parents who asked if there was anything available anywhere that would counter TV programs with subtle and not-so-subtle ideas that run counter to the Bible’s teachings. Christian parents wanted Bible-based programs their kids would love, like those with animals and things related to the outdoors.
Mike Snavely not only grew up in South Africa and had many experiences with nature, but he also worked for the South African National Parks Service in Kruger National Park. This earned him the nickname, “Ranger Mike”.
These video episodes are each designed to be:
Here’s a strange turn of events! Ranger Mike is speaking to a group of kids about spiders. But someone in the audience doesn’t like this at all!
Soon, things are getting out of hand! The giant spiders get loose! Kids panic and start screaming, trying to get out of the building. Emergency vehicles – phone calls – helicopters – the hospital! What’s going on?! Word of the catastrophe spreads quickly.
Splat takes charge. Wait, WHAT! Splat takes charge?! Oh, no! This is going to be a real mess!
A mess? Or maybe there’s some “monkey business” afoot! Join Ranger Mike as he unravels and corrects the twisted tale. Discover the secret in the old chest up in the creepy attic! Learn the truth, not only about what really happened, but also about spiders – and monkeys and apes, too!
Watch out, though! There is a very serious side to monkey business — a very flawed story about apes and people!
