VeggieTales - 'Twas the Night Before Easter - 2/2011

Twas the Night Before EasterVeggieTales 'Twas the Night Before Easter

  • Favorite Features -
  1. return of Veggie Friends including Larry, Bob, Petunia and Madame Blueberry along with a new friend, Cassie Cassava.
  2. strong message on the real meaning of Easter based on Mark 10:45 - Jesus came to serve us and give His life for us so we can serve and help others
  3. fun new Silly Song - "The Hopperena"
  4. additional bonus features
  5. teams up with World Vision encouraging families to sign up for child sponsorship

Once again Big Idea has produced a story the entire family will enjoy and learn from! It is so easy for us to get "caught up" in the "holiday" of Easter and forget what Resurrection Sunday is really all about . . . the empty tomb! This new Veggie story reminds us Jesus came to serve others and to give His life for us! There are strong messages about telling the truth, forgiving others, serving others by helping them and the most important message of Jesus' love!

"'Twas the Night Before Easter" brings back favorite Veggie friends - Larry, Bob, Petunia, Madame Blueberry and more as well as introduces a new Veggie - Cassie Cassava . . . voiced by Melinda Doolitte - and has humor throughout sure to get parents laughing! In addition, I appreciate how VeggieTales and World Vision have teamed up to provide an opportunity for families to reach out and help a needy child in the world with their child sponsorship program. As a grandma, I sincerely appreciate how Big Idea consistently provides excellent stories with strong messages for families to talk about, but when they go the extra mile and team up with ministries and provide us a way to live what we learned, this makes them truly stand out and shows why they are so much more than just a company making dvds for kids! Extremely well done, Big Idea!
