We are a VeggieTales loving family.
All three of my boys have watched since they were tinies. I love how each story has a message and each one has prompted many a conversation in our home. So when I was asked to review the newest VeggieTales, I jumped at the chance. I sat down to watch it with my two youngest after school one day.
The Little House That Stood is a wonderful retelling of The Three Little Pigs. In Cabbageville, three builders compete to win the Builder of the Year Award. One builds a house out of straw, another out of sticks, and another out of brick. Sound familiar? Bob the Tomato remembers a conversation with his mentor Old Man Zucchini who tells him that building a house on a strong foundation is like building our lives on God's Word. That it will stand strong when troubles come.
"Strong on the ground, you stick around."
I loved this story and the message shared.
There are also Silly Songs with Larry (which we love to sing along with) and a retelling of the story of Humpty Dumpty with a wonderful message of the importance of helping others. Loved that all the nursery rhyme characters like Goldilocks, Jack & Jill, and many more were part of this story.
My Zachary wanted you all to know that He loved the Humpty Dumpty story because it was all about helping others and "that's really important for every one to learn."
We also love to visit the VeggieTales website as there are all kinds of fun activities there. There are games, videos, coloring pages, and so much more. There is even an area for parents which has family discussion guides and activities.

About the Movie
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!
