Veggie Tales Super Comics – Keep Kids Reading!

Have you ever struggled with getting your child to buckle down and practice reading or get some good reading time in? One of the many delights of my career as a Preschool and Elementary Teacher was to help students learn to read or develop stronger reading habits. The desire to skip their reading assignment and go off to play or daydream seemed a constant battle with some students, where others adored getting their hands on anything they could read from magazines to comic books.


Today I want to suggest a great way to encourage your reluctant readers to have some fun with their summer reading and keep their skills up. Introducing the Veggie Tales Super Comics Vol. 1 & 2! These are two fantastic new comic books with many of your favorite characters and stories you’ve grown to love from the Veggie Tales brand and they’ve even inserted a few surprise new stories too – all in comic strip form! Each Volume contains three stories with vibrant, colorful illustrations and adorable characters from Veggie Tales.


Both my younger kids enjoyed reading these comic books – especially my youngest who is four years old and just developing his reading habits. He plopped right down on the floor for hours just scouring the pages one by one pointing out his favorite characters and telling me all about the stories in the book. It was just too cute!


I hope you will find offering your reluctant readers something fun like these unique Veggie Tales Super Comics (available at Family Christian Stores and online) to be a sure win/win for you and your budding reader.



VeggieTales SuperComics brings all the fun you’ve come to expect in a popular new format. Each SuperComic includes three VeggieTales stories, hundreds of full-color illustrations and fun bonus features. Stories included in this first volume are Dave and the Giant Pickle, Lyle the Kindly Viking and an all new Larry Boy and the Prideosaurus. Each story focuses on a specific lesson, with sharing, self-esteem, and humility being covered in this volume.

New Veggie Tales Noah’s Ark DVD Movie Review & $10 GC Giveaway!


It was a lot of fun watching this adorable film with my kiddos! Veggie Tales does a great job again bringing everyone some fun, family entertainment with a Biblical message in this new hit DVD called Veggie Tales: Noah’s Ark! It’s available now at Family Christian Stores everywhere.

While Noah and his family go through all sorts of trials – as can be expected for this particular story, Veggie Tales throw in lots of singing and comedy in this new style of animation for Veggie Tales characters. It is light-hearted and calm enough for anyone from toddlers to mid-elementary aged kids to enjoy.

Some cute and laughable items during the show my daughter and I would like to share so you can keep an eye out for them:

  • the ark is shaped and colored like a giant orange slice
  • hamster dance during the “No More Rain” celebration song
  • the lion gets his mane braided while they are on the ark
  • the hamster “flying” project
  • ark surfing the wave
  • what happens to the “hot air balloon”

They wrap up this Noah’s Ark DVD with a nice ending that kids will enjoy. This film has everything you would expect from a Veggie Tales DVD plus the charm of their new style of animation, some new characters and catchy tunes to appreciate.


Rebecca at Love2EncourageYou and daughter M of Kid’s Corner Reviews

Quick “Kid’s Corner” Review from my daughter (age 8):  M shares she really, really, really loves it. It’s hilarious! It’s all about fun, and it shares the Bible story of Noah’s ark. It talks about coming in twos onto the ark. The movie shares that everything is part of God’s plan – you just have to trust it. I recommend it to everyone with kids. They will love it!



Noah and his family together with a zoo full of animals take an adventure aboard an orange slice ark. After 40 days and nights of rain, everyone’s faith has been tested, and they’re ready to jump ship. Will they chart a new course, or will they remember to trust God’s promises?

Action Bible Guess-It Game, games, kids, action Bible

Here’s a fun family game to play! I actually recently won this from another Family Christian Stores blogger! I gave it to my son and husband as an early gift for the holidays during the Thanksgiving break. (The Action Bible Guess It Game is available for purchase from Family Christian by clicking on the image – affiliate link.) There are so many awesome games at Family Christian Stores that you can pretty much find something for all ages in your household to be entertained with.

VeggieTales Nativity Play Set

Another great gift idea is the Veggie Tales Nativity Play Set. We picked this up for our kids last Christmas season and they have continued to play with it throughout the year! I think developing an understanding and enjoyment of reliving the Christmas story about Jesus’ birth is an important thing to practice while they are little. My three year old is chattering away about the animals and the baby Jesus in the manger, and the wise men all the time. My daughter likes to add additional animals and scenery to it from her other toys in her collection. Just click on the image of the nativity to order this today for your little ones.

Don’t forget to use CODE: SNOWFLAKE  today to take 40% off any one regularly priced item! Hope you find something special you’ve been waiting to buy with a deal this awesome!

Veggie Tales New DVD: Beauty and the Beet #Review and #Giveaway


A big thank you to Flyby Promotions and Veggie Tales for providing a copy of the movie in exchange for an honest review.

A Lesson In Unconditional Love

Beauty and the Beet is the newest DVD available from the beloved children’s animated story creators – Veggie Tales! My two kids were SO EXCITED about this particular DVD coming out as we are big Disney fans, and love the Beauty and the Beast story. To no surprise, we were very pleased with the outcome of Veggie Tales version of the story called Beauty and the Beet! Veggie Tales always does a superb job of finding just the right amount of witty humor to entertain the adults watching with their kids as well as having funny, silly, crazy, laugh-out-loud moments to thrill and delight the kids. We love all the Veggie Tales shows and this one is going to be a new favorite.

Our desire to instill morals and values in our children’s hearts and minds comes with careful choosing in what we let them  read, listen to, and watch on TV. If you are as cautious as we are, you will be more than happy to know that we give the Veggie Tales Beauty and the Beet (and every Veggie Tales film for that matter) a huge thumbs up for family friendliness and helpful life lessons in the show. Probably our favorite parts of this film were the silly song with Larry (about Mac N Cheese!) and the adorable songs in this film. The songs “Show You Love” and “Deck the Halls” song are very contagious and my kids hit the replay button on the sing-a-long songs at the end over and over to sing and dance along with them. The cd to accompany this film will be releasing soon too and we will be sure to grab one for our listening (and sing-a-long) enjoyment.


 Beauty and the Beet Details:

(Sept. 11, 2014) – Take the timeless and enchanting story of “Beauty and the Beast,” toss with the unique flavors of VeggieTales and blend in the sweet voice of country music superstar Kellie Pickler – and the result is BEAUTY AND THE BEET, a brand-new VeggieTales musical that premieres Oct. 14 exclusively on DVD and digital download.Pickler (American Idol, Dancing With the Stars) brings her unmistakable voice to the role of Mirabelle, a sweet-potato singer whose family band is on the brink of superstardom. BEAUTY AND THE BEET blends the irresistible charm and appeal of VeggieTales with a heartfelt message about the importance of unconditional love.A BEAUTY AND THE BEET companion CD, featuring 10 brand-new songs – including an all-veggie rendition of the classic Christmas carol Deck the Halls – will also be available in stores and on iTunes to coincide with the release of the movie on Oct. 14.”All my nieces and nephews grew up with VeggieTales, and when they heard I was going to be in a VeggieTales movie, I immediately became the coolest aunt in the world!” said Pickler, who joins the VeggieTales cast on eight of the 10 songs on the BEAUTY AND THE BEET soundtrack. “Mirabelle may be a vegetable, but she’s beautiful through and through, especially her ability to show grace and compassion for everyone she meets. “Mirabelle’s kindness extends to Finnegan J. Beet, the bitter and lonely owner of a rundown mountaintop resort where Mirabelle’s family breaks down en route to their biggest concert ever. Matching the Beet’s heartless actions with her own genuinely sweet nature, Mirabelle proves that just as God loves us all whether we deserve it or not, unconditional love is its own reward.In addition to Mirabelle and Mr. Beet, the zesty supporting cast includes Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, Jimmy the Gourd, the French Peas and a host of other favorite veggies.

Both the DVD and the CD also include Mac and Cheese, a giddy new “Silly Songs With Larry” segment in which Larry the Cucumber reveals the surprising and heretofore untold history of his family’s unexpected contributions to Italian cuisine.

BEAUTY AND THE BEET is just the start ofVeggieTales In the House the fun in store this fall for VeggieTales fans, because Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber and their friends will also star in a brand-new Netflix original series, VeggieTales In the House, which premieres Thanksgiving weekend exclusively on the streaming platform.

Kellie Pickler appears on the BEAUTY AND THE BEET soundtrack album courtesy of Black River Entertainment. She grew up immersed in the country life of small town Albemarle, N.C. At age 19, she gained fame as a contestant on “American Idol,” followed by a move to Nashville where she has recorded four critically acclaimed albums (Small Town Girl, Kellie Pickler, 100 Proof, and her current album?The Woman I Am), performed for fans around the world, and made countless television appearances, including a 2013 win on Dancing with the Stars.

Additional Beauty and the Beet Resources?


We are sure you’re family will love this delightful new DVD from Veggie Tales! Beauty and the Beet shares such cute musical songs that sound 50’s era …it reminds me of the movie That Thing You Do. Just precious how they make it all so much fun for the kids to watch and sing-a-long to. My daughter has been singing the “Show You Love” song from Beauty and the Beet all day – practicing to sing it for her brother and father when they get home today! Too cute! Your kids should enjoy Beauty and the Beet too. You can purchase it today by clicking on the image below. (affiliate link)
