Veggie Tales is such a cute show. My boys absolutely love the singing (and even my mom does too!!!)
I was sent Larry Learns To Listen, and Bob Lends A Helping Hand to review.
Larry Learns To Listen was their favorite. They liked the song "Listen" and I am really hoping they will take it to heart!!! lol
Each DVD came with two other episodes totaling more then 70 minutes on each.
These are really wholesome fun cartoons. It makes me soo happy that the boys love them!!
You can get many different episodes of Veggie Tales, by visiting their website. You can also play fun games and do great activities with the kids!!
