The latest installment in the VeggieTales series includes two fun stories The Little House that Stood and The Good Egg of Gooseville, separated by a new Silly Song: Happy Tooth Day. The program is about 45 minutes long and is ideal for young children and older VeggieTales fans.
The first story is about three little pigs that stroll into town looking for building contractors. One contractor has a plan and the other two are clueless. Similar to the Three Little Pigs nursery rhyme, there are three different houses built. Larry builds with hay, Mr. Lunt with bricks, and Bob follows plans from the Master Builder’s Handbook.
The story explores biblical references to building a house on the rock instead of sand. Bob starts building his house with a firm foundation according the Master Builder’s Handbook. The other two just throw their buildings together in a very precarious manner. While adults will know the outcome several minutes in advance, the humorous gags and animation will keep younger kids engaged.
The DVD has chapter stops so the two programs can be viewed one at a time, or the viewer can jump back to the Silly Song as often as they would like. There is also a free study guide available for small groups or families to share with their children. It is simple to use and includes several Bible verses for review and discussion. Coloring sheets are also available for free downloading.
Over all, the entertainment value is high and the Biblical principles ideal for families. In addition, the creative approach and artistic style makes the programs enjoyable for all ages. The DVD releases Tuesday, March 5, 2013 to numerous outlets with bargain prices at WalMart and Christianbook.com.
