VeggieTales Review & Give-a-way


"If you like to talk to tomatoes. If a squash can make you smile.....Broccoli, celery.....VeggieTales, VeggieTales.......There's never-ever-ever-ever-ever been a show like VeggieTales!"
Our family has been singing silly songs with Bob and Larry for well over 15 years now.  (Yikes, did that REALLY just make me feel old!).  We've been faithful watchers of the VeggieTales series since nearly the beginning.  We are now even thrilled to know that our granddaughters also spend time watching.  (Again, I just felt a wee bit old!). 
I was thrilled to have the opportunity to sit down and watch another BRAND NEW episode in the series this last week.  I knew I wouldn't be disappointed!
I absolutely LOVED this one!  Granted, VeggieTales is for the preschool crowd!  However, this Momma actually enjoys watching them.  Hopefully that means I'm young-at-heart (or maybe a tad bit of sanity has been lost through years of parenting!). 
This new one:  About the Little House that Stood ranks way up high as one of my favorites.  It retells one of my favorite Bible stories (obviously in TYPICAL VeggieTales style!)  It immediately took me back to my own childhood years and the moments of teaching each of my own children the precious children's song "The Wise Man Built His House Upon the Rock".  After all, isn't this what biblical motherhood is about.  Giving our children a firm foundation to stand on.  Teaching them by example the importance of following God's footprints! 
I absolutely adored the way that this particular video included so many childhood nursery rhyme characters into the story, teaching each of them the importance of being neighborly and working together. 
I'm not going to lie.....I *ahem* was probably the most enthusiastic viewer of this particular movie!  :)  From the youngest in the house (1 year olds) to the oldest, we all laughed, smiles, and sang-along, all the while being immersed in wholesome values and Biblical truths. 
The great thing about VeggieTales is that it grasps the attention of the youngest viewers and provides a springboard for teaching wholesome values as they get older.  Plus, the characters are just completely adorable. 
Can you tell we are a Veggietales family?  :)
I'm excited to be able to offer a copy to one of you!

About The Little House That Stood
When the Three Little Pigs roll into Cabbageville looking to build some new houses, they meet one builder with a plan and two without a clue! Larry builds with hay, Mr. Lunt with bricks, but only Bob builds his houses on a firm foundation - following the wise plans from the Master Builder's Handbook! Will the Little Piggies make the right choices when it comes to building their houses - and their lives - on solid ground? Find out in this parable that shows kids when they follow God's blueprints, then can stand strong when the storms come!
