Win a copy of the latest Veggie Tale, The Penniless Princess.

For our early years of marriage and parenting, we didn’t have a TV or VCR. It took the arrival of the second child to push us to the brink. My mother-in-law gave us a hand-me-down TV/VCR combo as well as a selection of videos for the kids. Our first home viewings were Veggie Tales.

Lyle the Kindly Viking holds a very special place in my heart.

Today, we’re avowed movie-watchers and love to view a flick or two each week. Veggie Tales have been a favorite for a long time. I absolutely love their spins on classic literature and cultural icons. Minnesota Cuke as the veggified version of Indiana Jones is too cute, as is Larry-Boy, the cucumber counterpart to Bat Man.

Recently, we received a review copy of the latest Veggie Tale, The Penniless Princess. The story of Sara Crewe, as told in A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is one of my favorite stories. This Veggie-spun classic film is a fun retelling of that tale.

Movie synopsis: Sweet Sarah Crew has everything a little girl could want – a loving family, lots of friends and a closet full of frilly dresses! But when life takes a turn and Sarah goes from riches to rags, will she realize that her true worth lies not in what she has, but what she has in her heart? Find out in this inspiring new story from VeggieTales that reminds kids who they are in God’s eyes.

You can watch the trailer here:

All the kids (shh, even the big ones) enjoyed the video. And it even prompted one of my middlers to hunt down the book as well as The Secret Garden, also by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

I love it when a film prompts a kid to hunt down the original stories!

  1. My oldest is 7 (almost 8, mom!) & has been on a Zach & Cody, Phineas & Ferb, and anything else that is all boy. But I came out to find him & his brother cuddling & watching Veggie Tales last week. He told me he wished he was younger so he could watch more of them.

    I love Veggie Tales!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
