This review is my honest opinion. As a VeggieTales Ambassador, I receive movie kits with the understanding that I will share them with our church community as well as letting others know about their movies. I was not compensated in any other way for this review. I will not review any products that won’t benefit myself or my family.
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 generosity, hope, and love, this timeless tale will warm the hearts of children everywhere!
I showed this movie to our Kindergarten – Second Grade kids at our After School JAMS program last week. As I talked about the movie, I was surprised how many kids hand NOT heard of the story of the Little Drummer Boy. Some of the kids did recognize The Little Drummer Boy song once they heard it in the movie.
VeggieTales and Big Idea have found the magic way of telling Bible stories with that unique way of entertaining the kids and the parents. They find a way to insert grown-up humor and tell the story with a modern twist to get the kids involved. When I asked the kids afterwards about the movie, they were right away able to identify lessons on forgiveness, anger, and being kind. As a parent, I appreciate the ability to tie in those lessons to real life.
If you are looking for a new Christmas story to enjoy this year, THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY is one to choose. This DVD is available for $8.99 HERE or at your local Christian or discount store. Prices are subject to change.
