Sweet Sara Crewe 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 Sara goes from riches to rags, will she realize that her true worth lies not in what she has, but what’s in her heart?  Find out in this inspiring new story from VeggieTales, based on the beloved classic novel “A Little Princess,” that reminds kids who they are in God’s eyes.  
Lesson: Knowing Your True Worth
Verse:  Whatever is true, pure and lovely…practice these things.” – Phillippians 4:8

My Thoughts:

A fellow blogger introduced me to the popular Veggie Tales series a few years back, when I was looking for a wholesome family movie to watch when my nephew came to visit.  Because we didn't have children at that time, I was used to watching PG13 and R rated movies on movie night, without batting an eye.  But, when Ethan would come to visit, I always found myself running to the video store to rent a movie.

My friend gave me a handful of the Veggie Tales movies to let him choose from.  By the end of the weekend visit, we ended up watching each and every one. It was a joy to sit and watch this movies with him, as they were not only entertaining, but also shared important lessons.  Since this weekend Veggie Tales marathon, I have continued to pick up new releases in the series to have on hand for Ethan's visit, as well as now introducing them to my children. 

I can't tell you how excited I was to receive an advance screener copy of "The Penniless Princess" a couple of weeks ago.  After watching the movie trailer (see below), I knew that my daughter would enjoy this movie very much.  And, she did!  We all did!  Last Friday we had pizza/movie night, and snuggled up together on the couch to watch this movie.  Who can resist the loveable Veggie Tales characters?  Don't tell us to choose a favorite, because we can't.  :-)

Are you a fan of Veggies Tales?  If so, then you definitely need to pick up a copy of this movie when it releases on August 14 at major retailers.  Haven't heard off or seen a Veggie Tales movie, then this movie will make for a great introduction.  Either way, you and your family will enjoy quality family spent together watching this wholesome family film.
