Veggie Tales: Abe and the Amazing Promise (Giveaway)

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winner is comment #39: Cindy B.

My kids have never really been exposed to Veggie Tales as much as they have to other kids shows. However, as a parent I can really appreciate the positive message that these characters instill. That’s why I was really happy to have the opportunity to share Veggie Tales: Abe and the Amazing Promise with my girls.


While on set filming, Bob the Tomato decides to respond to a fan’s letter about “waiting”, meanwhile everyone’s patience is tested by spitting camels, a confused nurse, an easily distracted film crew, and a host of other laughable filming disasters! Join the comical chaos and calamity in Abe and the Amazing Promise that reminds kids that God always keeps his promises . . . even if we have to wait a while!


Since I”m more familiar with Veggies Tales than my daughters, I had to spend some time explaining to them who everyone was. They thought it was hilarious that all the characters were vegetables and really took an interest in the stories being told. Girlie Girl especially liked the part with the nurse mixing up the word patience for patients. And I have to admit it was pretty funny.

What I really like about Veggie Tales is that it has a religious platform without sounding like they’re preaching to you. They talk about morals and basic common courtesy, something that all children should learn no matter what their family’s religious beliefs are. I think it’s a great way to get a positive message across and I love that I don’t have to worry about Veggie Tales using words that other kids cartoons seem to think is acceptable but really isn’t.

Veggie Tales: Abe and the Amazing Promise was a big hit with our family and it taught my girls a valuable lesson on patience. Something they definitely needed some help with. :-)
