You just might love the newest Veggie Tales video entitled The Little House That Stood: A Lesson in Making Good Choices. The Little House That Stood blends the three little pigs with the parable of the wise man who builds his house upon the rock. It's a great illustration of what can go wrong when you build on a less than firm foundation no matter how great the building materials are.
Here's how the back of the box describes it:
When the Three Little Pigs roll into Cabbageville looking to build some new houses, they meet one builder with a plan and two without a clue! Larry builds with hay, Mr. Lunt with bricks, but only Bob builds his house on a firm foundation--following the wise plans from the "Master Builder's Handbook!" Will the Little Piggies make the right choices when it comes to building their houses--and their lives--on solid ground? Find out in this parable that shows kids that when they follow God's blueprints, they can stand strong when the storms come!
The Little House That Stood DVD also features a retelling of the Humpty Dumpty story in "The Good Egg of Gooseville". Humpty Dumpty gets a little stressed out at trying to do it all himself, and ends up getting all cracked up. But he learns the lesson that a friend will "Lend a Little Hand", and though he can't undo the cracks, he can keep them from getting worse. There are also bonus features on the disk that Veggie Tales fans have come to love, like a new Silly Song called Happy Tooth Day.
My 8 year old daughter loved this video. Well, to be fair, all my kids did, but the older ones have a little more trouble "owning up" to it. They had no trouble sitting and watching the movie 4-5 times though. And they've been singing, "a friend will lend a little, a friend will lend a little, a friend will lend a little hand" over and over again. I think this is a great movie with a strong message presented in a fun and entertaining way, and I'm thrilled we had the chance to review it.
