Veggie Tales The Little House That Stood Review and GIIVE AWAY!

We love Veggie Tales in our house.  We really, really love them. We have watched them since our first born was little and even watched them in our adult Sunday School classes!

So when I got the opportunity to review the newest Veggie Tales video I almost jumped through my computer to make sure I was picked.  I just had to review this video. 

Thankfully, I didn't have to actually jump into the computer!  I did, however, send an enthusiastic response and jumped for joy when the video arrived. 

The Little House That Stood is the newest installment in the fabulous Veggie Tales video series.  Here is a bit about it:

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!

This time Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, and friends come together to share the parable of 'The Wise and Foolish Builders' from Matthew 7 in their version, The Little House That Stood!
This DVD teaches a lesson in making good choices and also features a Veggie retelling of the classic Humpty Dumpty story "The Good Egg of Gooseville."

Sound great?  It is.  The songs are catchy, as always, the stories are memorable, and the characters are adorable.  The story of Humpty Dumpty gets new life as it is told in a new way with a bit of a twist to it.  No, I'm not giving away any more than'll just have to watch it for yourself!

I will say that Silly Songs with Larry continues to be one of our all-time favorite things.  This song does not disappoint and had me laughing out loud the entire way through.   We actually watched it twice through before watching the entire video again!  It's that cute.

I really can't say enough about the influence Veggie Tales has had in our home.  We sing songs from the videos on a sometimes daily basis and talk about the stories often.  Even my 15yo loves them still.  They are a great way to impart the wisdom of the Bible to young children that will stick with them all the days of their lives. 

Plus, the songs are so catchy you can sing them when you are out grocery shopping to make the trip seem less daunting!

***I do have one to give away to a lucky reader.  All you have to do is tell me your favorite Silly Songs with Larry Song to be entered.  I will draw the winner on March 8th.
