Giveaway: Veggie Tales' The Little House That Stood DVD

My family have been fans of the Veggie Tales movies ever since my oldest daughter was a preschooler.  We enjoy the fun twist they take on Bible stories and other stories, to teach Christian values to children.  The humor always captures the interest of our children, as well as tickling the adults' funny bones with a few little gems (like references to other movies and books) that the children may not catch.  Best of all, they are completely safe and family friendly.  As my 2 year old says, "I dub Veg Tades!"  (translation: "I love Veggie Tales!")


The latest movie, The Little House That Stood, did not disappoint us at all.  It held up to all our expectations of a Veggie Tales movie.  Releasing TODAY, it uses two different fairy tales to teach two different lessons.  The first story uses the Story of the Three Little Pigs to help illustrate Jesus' parable of the wise and foolish builders from Matthew 7.  This town has three builders, who each build a house for one of the three little pigs.  However, only one builder is building on a firm foundation.  This story is very cute and illustrates the importance of making wise choices and building our life on the foundation of God's Truth.

The second story on this DVD uses the familiar nursery rhyme of Humpty Dumpty to show the importance of helping our neighbors.  Humpty Dumpty is the mayor of Gooseville, but he'd rather take care of himself than help the citizens of his town.  When he runs away to a self-serve resort, things quickly fall apart in Gooseville. Everyone, including Humpty Dumpty, soon learns that life is better when we set aside selfishness and take time to help our neighbors.

We've had this movie for less than a week, and it's been watched every single day since we got it.  My 2 year old, 4 year old and 6 year old like it the most, but everyone has watched it at least once.  We'll enjoy watching it many more times, as well.  You can read a synopsis of the movie and view more video samples at the Veggie Tales website. There are also coloring pages and a discussion guide available to print.
