Second-Chance Give-Away - Veggies in Space!

Last month I reviewed the new VeggieTales DVD; Veggietales: Veggies in Space The Fennel Frontier and asked, "What do you get when you combine several space themes, talking veggies, humor and a solid message? The new VeggieTales story: Veggies in Space, and it does not disappoint!" I reviewed this new Veggie-story and had a drawing to give one DVD away; however; the winner did not get their information to me, so I'm having a second-chance give-away to draw the name of a new winner!

You'll find my full review at this link, but when my grandsons watched Veggietales: Veggies in Space and Josiah, (the five-year old) told me the "main theme" was sharing. He thought the message was very clearly presented! He liked the fighting giant robots in loincloths and Caleb, (the two-year old) liked the space ship rockets! Children will identify with,"under the galactic law of to the victor goes the me-want-ti-um" as well as "the law of finders keepers" and will see examples throughout the story of characters who are not sharing as Mr. Spork,"wonders if it is all about the stuff that we call mine, mine, mine.

I love Junior's message, "If you have enough to spare, you have enough to share!" When he sings, "One for me and one for you, to share is not that hard to do. When we can see beyond ourselves and give to others, too! A bite for you a bite for me, that's how God says it's supposed to be and if we have enough to spare, we also have enough to share!

I love how Bob sums it up at the end with the verse from Luke 3:11; "Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none; and whoever has food to do likewise." In the story, the engines on the Starship Applepies are called, T.U.N.I.C.S and Bob explains how tunics are shirts and the Bible tells us if we have something someone else needs, then we are to share! It would be very easy to work on a couple projects with your grandchildren/children to help them share what they have with others.

While my grandsons are too young to catch all the "nods" to Star WarsStar Trek and even Dr. Who, grandparents and parents will once again be able to watch Veggietales: Veggies in Space with their grandchildren/children and enjoy the show! Whether it is a old-time phone booth showing up with Dr. Who in it, a cell phone with Larry saying, "Can you hear me now?", the captain's log being an actual "log", the "bridge on the starship Applepies is an actual bridge, characters with names like, Mr. Spork, Captain Cuke, and Lt. Whoareyou, the bumper stickers on the "station wagon", the planet, Tootanny, desperate pleas for help in holographic messages - which they wait to send until it is their, "only hope", the logic of Mr. Spork and more will all add to the fun!

Veggietales: Veggies in Space
