Veggie Tales

The Little House that Stood

Join Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, and some new piggy friends in a parable of ‘The Wise and Foolish Builders’ from Matthew 7 in the new Veggie Tales, The Little House That Stood.

My daughter enjoyed this one, and when I asked her what she learned, she immediately replied that she learned “to follow God’s Word and build on a firm foundation.” So I guess she got the point of the story!

I managed to sit through it as well {grin}. It was cute. I am always watching with a critical eye, I admit. I liked two of the pigs and was annoyed by one. It is always good when the stories actually teach your children decent values. Overall, I liked the plot and basic theme of making good choices, by following the “Master Builder’s Handbook.”

The second video seemed to be placed because of Easter, with a Humpty Dumpty story. I didn’t enjoy that one as much as the first, mainly because I agreed the mayor needed a break!  Yet, it also kept my daughter’s attention and she seemed pleased by the happy ending.

Take a look at their website. They have tons of resources for parents, a discussion guide, coloring pages, and more.

You can also watch for fun stuff for your kids at Veggie Tales on facebook, or follow them on twitter.

AND, I get to give one The Little House That Stood DVD away!

Just leave me a comment telling me who you want to win the DVD for ~ OR who your favorite Veggie Tales character is! I will choose a winner on March 15, 2013.
