Sunday Salon: The Little House That Stood

Can you believe we have already arrived at the first Sunday Salon of March? With the way the weather has been lately, it’s hard to think it won’t be long until Spring.

Today as we relax and enjoy Sunday Salon, I have something a little different to share you with. Instead of telling you about an intriguing new book, I want to tell you about a charming DVD for youngsters that will be released this week. 

VeggieTales has a new title coming out, The Little House That Stood. Thanks to Hope and the great folks at Flyby Promotions/Propeller, I have a copy of this DVD to giveaway. Please see the end of the post for the guidelines. Now make sure your favorite beverage is handy, find a comfortable chair and relax.

This delightful DVD  teaches a lesson about making good choices coverthrough the parable of ’The Wise and Foolish Builders’ from Matthew 7 combined with fairy tales. It tells the story of three builders who used different supplies to build homes - hay, bricks and sticks - with only one building on a strong foundation. The story explains why a strong foundation is needed in daily living as well.

The classic tale of Humpty Dumpty is also retold in ‘The Good Egg of Gooseville.’ This story deals with neighbors helping neighbors and the fact that one person can’t solve everyone’s problems.

The DVD also features a silly new song, ‘Happy Tooth Day.’ It will have youngsters smiling and possibly even thinking about brushing more. It’s a catchy little tune that will remain with you long after the DVD ends. In addition, there are numerous other bonus features such as the history of Mother Goose, ‘Lend A Little Hand’ sing-along, a discussion guide, and much more.

VeggieTales: The Little House That Stood puts a new spin on some classic fairy tales and incorporates parables from the Bible. This 49-minute DVD will delight youngsters of all ages (including adults) as it brings vegetables to life, reinforces moral values, and provides countless moments of laughter.
