This is my 3rd VeggieTales DVD review after "God Loves You Very Much" and "If I Sang a Silly Song". We are a big fan of VeggieTales after the first 2 DVDs (and I also bought another DVD from our church bookstore as well, so yeah, we are a fan!) Anyway, here is my review:
"The Penniless Princess—God’s Little Girl is the heart-warming story based on the children’s book A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The story, featuring plenty of engaging and fun music fit for families, including the all-new Silly Song “Best Friends Forever” and the featured song “No Matter What,” helps to teach an important lesson about knowing your own true worth and trusting God, no matter what happens in life. Other bonus feature include a special tour of London with the popular French Peas characters, a hilarious look at the history of the Teddy Bear, a discussion guide for parents, and behind-the-scenes clips.
Sweet Sarah Crew has everything a little girl could want – a loving family, lots of friends and a closet full of frilly dresses! But when life takes a turn and Sarah goes from riches to rags, will she realize that her true worth lies not in what she has, but what she has in her heart? Find out in this inspiring new story from VeggieTales that reminds kids who they are in God’s eyes."

Firstly I must note down that it is a very clever idea to insert a penny on the PR letter that I got along with the DVD and the book! This is the first US penny I ever owned! *embarrassed and yet proud of it!*
Back to my review, I received a copy of the DVD and also the "365 Daystarter Devos for Girls" book which I am very delighted to get as I was only expecting the DVD. Heck, even getting that penny is surprising enough for me, so yes, again, I am thrilled to get the DVD and the book!
Ben scooted off the moment I browsed through the book, maybe it's all full of words which he doesn't seem to understand now. I hope it's not the pinkish color that makes him lose his interest. But rest assured, I am definitely keeping this book and will revisit it when my Alyson is old enough for this book! A quick note about the book: "Daystarter devos for girls help parents begin every morning with the wit of VeggieTales and wisdom from the Word of God! Includes 365 daily thoughts, a prayer, and a verse for kids to start their day out right!"
As for the DVD, I like the lesson to be learned, that it doesn't matter what you have, the most important is what's in your heart! I use the opportunities to teach my boy the importance of sharing, to be kind and helpful to others. The songs are catchy and cute as well and yes, we danced along to it too!
My 3 year old boy sat glued in front of my laptop throughout the whole DVD. Of course I was right next to him while he watched the DVD and I explained to him in simpler terms that he could understand the storyline of the DVD and what is happening.
There are some breathtaking scenes from the DVD! Love them!
A fun, entertaining and inspiring DVD that is a must to have!
