My Take on the DVD
My kids and really my whole family have been fans of the Veggietales gang for a long time. The messages that they share are timeless and really hit home many of the values that my wife and I want to share with our kids. Thus, over the years our Veggietales collection has really grown and our kids have seen all of the DVDs that have come on the market (at least all that I know of).

This new DVD compilation set is great as it brings together all of the Christmas related shows in one DVD set (instead of having five individual DVD's sitting around the house, now you only have two main DVD's). Whats better though is that you get the messages that are shared in all of these DVD's. Each offer a slightly different look at God's love for all of us as well as powerful messages about love, friendship, understanding and so much more.

On top of this you get all of the great toe-tapping songs that stick in your head that also come with any VeggieTales DVD.

This set will definitely become a new family tradition that can be continued not only at Christmas, but at anytime during the year!
