The focus of this dvd is on sharing - all the Veggie friends learn to share their songs . . .  silly songs, songs with meaning, songs about food and songs from the 80's for a strong message about sharing which kids will understand. In addition, VeggieTales has teamed up with World Vision to encourage families to share what they have by sponsoring a child  . . . not only will children hear about sharing, but they and their families will have a real opportunity to share with others! This is a huge "plus" to dvds for kids . . . I love how VeggieTales not only encourages sharing with their strong message, but actually provides a real way for your grandchildren and children to have the opportunity to really live what they learn by sharing with a child in need!

I found the dvd to most definitely be silly - it didn't take long for me to be tired of Suzie, but my 2 year old grandson loved this dvd! He sang and danced with enthusiasm along with his Veggie friends! So, if grandmas can be patient through the over-the-top silliness of Suzie you will find yourself enjoying your grandchildren as they sing and dance along with their Veggie friends . . . and watching your grandchildren do this makes it all worth it!

I'm happy to say I'll be giving one VeggieTales Live! Sing Yourself Silly DVD away next Friday - May 27th!
