VeggieTales have always been a favorite in our home. My kids really love them. The lessons behind the movies are great and are something I do not mind my kids watching at all. They learn a lot of things and I love the background in the VeggieTale movies. The newest VeggieTale movie is called It’s a Meaningful Life. This DVD contains a lesson on being content. From the website here’s the DVD synopsis:
It was the biggest football game of his life and Stewart (Larry the Cucumber) had a chance to win it all. Injured in one bad play, his hopes of playing in the Salad Bowl—and living a life of fame and fortune—are dashed forever. Years later, silly-but-sweet Stewart loves his family, friends and job at the toy train factory, but still wonders “what if” things had been different. When he meets a mysterious train conductor who can turn back time, Stewart gets a chance to have the life he always wanted. Will he find all he’s been looking for? And what does this mean for those he loves most? Find out in this story of wonder and a lesson in being content.
We always have the best dinner table discussions about the VeggieTales. My daughter is 9 and still enjoys them, along with my 6 year old. I am glad because to me these are lessons that are never out dated and always can use a refresher. It’s especially hard when they are in school all the time and sometimes there aren’t always the best situations that arise from the socialization of other children. These DVD’s reinforce good behaviors in my children.
