My Impressions:

Packed with all the fun and silliness you have come to love about Veggie Tales, Very Veggie 5-Minute Stories will become a new favorite when you have just a short time to share a story. Action-packed, bold illustrations accompany fast-paced stories with all your veggie favorites. Kids will love the adventures that the characters encounter. There are plenty of laughs (or parental snickers) along with a message highlighting God’s truth. For instance, The Good, The Bad, And The Silly teaches about good choices as the veggie cowpokes take on a cattle drive. And The Halfhearted Viking shows the virtue of doing your best as the Vikings vacation at a resort where things are only half done.

Fun for the whole family, Very Veggie 5-Minute Stories will become a new favorite for quick story time. But don’t be surprised when you hear just one more!

Colorful illustrations will get your child interested, but the easy, rhyming conversations with God will help foster a love for prayer. All the VeggieTale characters are involved in the day to day prayers that help in all situations.

Children’s Corner — The Best Christmas Gift Ever!

30 Nov

6144nu7pchl-_sx460_bo1204203200_A new VeggieTales board book about the true meaning of Christmas.

In this festive VeggieTales book, the Veggies are celebrating Christmas — decorating the tree, singing carols, and exchanging gifts. But even though it’s so much fun to give and receive presents, the Veggies all know that the greatest gift of all was God’s gift of Jesus, his Son. Children will love the colorful art featuring their favorite Veggie friends. Parents can use this book to introduce little ones to the reason we rejoice at Christmastime — Jesus’ birth.

 

 

My Impressions:

Kids just love VeggieTales! There is just something about those green, red, and yellow characters that kids connect with. So it is great that there is a new book for the smaller set that tells the true meaning of the Christmas season. With catchy rhyme and colorful illustrations, The Best Christmas Gift Ever! captures all the excitement of the holidays — singing, presents and fun, fun, fun! But children will learn that without Jesus, there really wouldn’t be a reason for the season. I loved the last stanza — So at Christmas we sing, we give gifts and have fun, but the reason we’re glad is the gift of God’s Son — an important concept for parents to reinforce in a time when the real meaning of Christmas often gets lost. So if you are looking for a book for your preschooler that will keep the focus on Jesus, then check out The Best Christmas Gift Ever!

Recommended.

Audience: children ages 2-5.
