”If you like to talk to tomatoes, if a squash can make you smile, if you like to waltz with potatoes, up and down the produce aisle… then have we gotta show for you!”
Yep those veggies are at it again! This time it is a Lesson in Patience…NO! Not patients, but patience…you know waiting. ;0)
It’s the story of Abraham & Sarah waiting for a child that God has promised. Waiting so long they begin to wonder if it ever will really happen.
Good things come to those who wait! VeggieTales®: Abe and the Amazing Promise, the exciting new Bible-story-based adventure from Big Idea, Inc., an Entertainment Rights group company, releases on DVD February 7, 2009. The DVD launches amidst a comprehensive multi-product VeggieTales “Values To Grow By” marketing campaign.
Abe and the Amazing Promise is a Veggie-spun Bible classic that tells the story of Abraham and Sarah and their wait for a promised child. Featuring a lesson in patience, the DVD showcases nationally syndicated radio host “Delilah” as the voice of Sarah. Including a new Silly Song with Larry entitled “Sneeze If You Need To!,” the musical “misadventures” of Blunders in Boo-Boo-Ville and lots of family-friendly bonus features, this highly anticipated title is available for $14.99 SRP in Christian stores Saturday, February 7, 2009 and everywhere Tuesday February 10, 2009.
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!
This review opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time for me. Was it God’s intervention? I don’t know for sure, but it was certainly timely as we have been studying Abraham & Sarah in my Sunday School class. So after scrounging up a DVD player & TV my class got to watch it with us.
What I love so much about Veggie Tales is how even my 6th graders enjoyed the show. I think the folks at Big Idea do an awesome job of keeping everyone entertained by the story. Another good thing about this movie was while they didn’t cover how being impatient turned out wrong for Abraham & Sarah they added the Blunders in Boo-Boo-Ville which taught the kids that lesson very well. After we watched I asked the kids if they remembered how Sarah & Abraham were impatient and what happened to them for that.
Waiting is hard for everyone, but with a little patience good things (like cookies!) do come to us. You can pre-order VEGGIETALES®: ABE AND THE AMAZING PROMISE now or wait until Feb 10th for it to be available everywhere.
Thanks so much to Family Review Network & Veggies Tales for the chance to review another Big Idea!
