Sweet Pea Beauty – Veggie Tales

sweet-pea-veggie-talesVeggie Tales does it again in this delightful collection of well-known fairy tales with a Veggie twist. Appealing mostly to girls (although young boys will secretly enjoy them, too), the stories of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty take on a new dimension when enacted by the Veggie Tale gang. Parents sometimes complain that the focus on love and perfect princes isn’t appropriate for young children. The Veggie Tales rendition of these beloved stories puts this worry to rest. Instead of romantic love, the focus is on friendship. The girls still get to dream about being princesses, but only if they remember that princesses are special-just as God made them. They are also reminded that princesses are only truly beautiful when they have inner beauty. Silly songs, appealing music, bright colors and interesting stories make this DVD a fabulous addition to a home or church collection. Child Juror Comments: This was a good movie because it taught a good lesson. It doesn’t matter what you wear. It’s what on the inside that counts. I’ve seen this lesson before, but not like this. I like how they took the story of “Sleeping Beauty” and gave it a lesson. They used something that people like to teach a lesson. I think my friends would like this because it was Veggie Tales, and it was a great movie. They would like how it shows that Jesus looks at who you are on the inside. They like lessons like that. I loved the silly songs where they were talking about a “new” invention called pants. It was really funny. Ages 5-12.
