Veggietales Veggie Town Voyage 3 books in 1 Review


Beloved VeggieTales Characters Enrich Young Readers with Their Own Spin on Three Classics in a New Collection
Junior Asparagus, Laura Carrot, and many other VeggieTales characters return with three popular adventure-filled stories by Cindy Kenney packed into one colorful new book, VEGGIETOWN VOYAGE (Zonderkidz; $7.99; February 2013).

With an added emphasis on strong Christian values, the stories recall a classic television show (Lost in Space) and two iconic movies, (Cool Hand Luke and Ben-Hur), with each told in child-friendly text.

My Review:
I adore finding books that are filled with valuable lessons and Biblical teachings.  Veggietales does a great job of delivering that in their story books.  

These three stories include wonderful artwork and have a lot of humor for children and adults alike.  :) 

The first story teaches a lesson about never being lost because God is always with us!  What a great lesson for kids to learn and to help them in any situation to overcome fear and anxiety.  

The second story truly is inspiring!  The story takes you from watching Junior working because he wants to be rich to working to be a blessing.  AWESOME because we truly will have fortune in heaven by blessing other here on earth.  

The last story focuses on patience, something that is typically hard for most children, okay most people!  It may be hard to exercise patience but God truly will gift us patience when we need it!  

My five year old was able to understand these stories and enjoy them but they were a bit too long for my near 2 year old.  I suggest the appropriate age to be 4-10 year old's.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
