My boys have grown up on VeggieTales. We own most of the movies, and always look forward to the newest release. Recently we had the chance to review The Little Drummer Boy, which is VeggieTales latest Christmas story. Here is the synopsis:
In this Veggie-version of a holiday classic, Junior Asparagus stars as The Little Drummer Boy, a lonely child who finds the true meaning of Christmas when he stumbles upon the birth of the baby Jesus. A story of hope, love and forgiveness, this timeless tale will warm the hearts of children everywhere!
Our thoughts: As Christmas approaches, often we get caught up with the materialism that surrounds this holiday. Even a lot of our Christmas classics that we have come to love, leave out the most important reason for celebrating Christmas-the birth of our Lord and Savior. So one of the things that I love about this movie is the fact that it reminds us that Jesus is our reason for celebration. The other theme of this movie is forgiving others and trusting in God even when life seems unfair. At times, it may not always be easy to forgive others or trust in God, but we are called to do this throughout our Christian life.
So did we enjoy this movie? Yes. This movie captured my boys interest and is a great addition to our VeggieTales collection.
