We were recently sent Sweetpea Beauty – A Girl After God’s Own Heart to add to our collection.
Once upon a time, there lived a royally sour blueberry, a fair rhubarb maiden and a dastardly deceptive mirror! Sweetpea Beauty knows that what’s on the inside is what matters most, but insecure Queen Blueberry can’t see past her own reflection! So, when a decree is handed down that only the most beautiful can rule the land, the Queen gets nervous and things turn ugly! Banished to the dark forest, Sweetpea’s fate seems bleak until a charming prince, a band of merry minstrels and seven snow peas come to the rescue! Will Sweetpea and her friends be able to warn the Queen in time to save her from the clutches of the tricky mirror – or will the crumbling kingdom and the Queen’s own heart be lost forever? Find out in this fairy "Veggie" tale about the real meaning of true beauty.
I was thrilled to learn that VeggieTales had created their first ever adventure for girls. Their dvds are always fantastic, but I'm a sucker for the fairy tales. This story takes a fun twist on Sleeping Beauty that the whole family is sure to enjoy.
The dvd was released July 31st and runs about 45 minutes. Evan has asked to watch it over and over again. I'm so happy that VeggieTales are some of his favorite DVDs. This one teaches about the importance of True Beauty and what really matters in life. Kids can be cruel and I think they all need the lessons that Sweetpea Beauty teaches.
Since Evan is 3, it is sometimes hard for me to explain important lessons or bible stories to him. VeggiTales breaks it down and teaches children in a way that they can completely understand-and really enjoy. I highly recommend this DVD to any family with young children.
