VeggieTales: Noah's Ark #Review And #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 3/15 #VeggieMoms #VeggieTales #VeggieFans #VTNoah

In Noah's Ark, Shem and Sadie (Jaci Velasquez) return home from their honeymoon to find that Noah (played by Pa Grape) has begun, at God's direction, to work on a massive ark, which his wife Naamah (played by Madame Blueberry) and sons Ham (Larry) and Japheth (Bob) are helping construct before the start of 40 days and 40 nights of rain.

But Shem doesn't understand Noah's unshakable faith in God, particularly when animals start arriving two-by-two - while the rain is nowhere to be seen. When the deluge does come, Shem begins to understand Noah's determination to preserve humanity's future... and the importance of trusting in God.

Noah's Ark also features a brand new "Silly Songs With Larry" segment, in which Larry dons a safari outfit as he goes on a quest for a gigantic, golden egg.

The Grammy nominated and multi-Emmy award-winning host of one of TV's most famous shows, Let's Make a Deal, and star of Whose Line Is It Anyway, Wayne Brady, brings to life Noah's son Shem, who first questions, then learns to embrace, his father's direction from God. Wayne Brady also performs seven original songs in Noah's Ark.

My Review:
This VeggieTales movie was more musical then the ones that I've seen in the past. It felt like everything that happened in the story was sung about. Little children will love it. My five and a half year old daughter asked if we could watch it again! Older children around six to seven may not be that into it. I love the story of Noah's Ark, and this one followed closely to the story in the bible, but with it's own Veggie twist of course. The animals are also super cute! Yes, the Ark looks like an orange slice!

I wasn't completely fond of one of the character's comment at the end of the movie that said that God told them to go forth and multiply. Then one of the characters asked what that meant. The other character then told him that she would explain it to him later. So it opened up the conversation about what that meant, because my five and a half year old daughter asked me about it. My seven and two and a half year old didn't even notice. I explained to her that it meant for them to have babies. She was fine with that explanation.

Everybody Loves Hazel - Children's Book Review!

Disclosure: I received a copy of Everybody Loves Hazel in exchange for my review post. No other compensation was exchanged or received.

Everybody Loves Hazel is a cute children's book about a pink chick name Hazel, written by Carla Komar. A native of Westfield, New Jersey, Carla Komar has a background in children's apparel and accessory design. She has incorporated her design talents by bringing Hazel's story to life through a fun and colorful collection of accessories that speak to Hazel's positive mantras. Hazel skips through life with so much love and happiness that everyone wants to follow her wherever she goes.

My Review:
Hazel is off to pick up her birthday cake, and along the way she stops to help out her friends and they all go with her to pick up her cake. Then her friends help her celebrate her birthday and share the cake too! This book is cute, I feel that it's more for little girls then for little boys. I feel that little girls around ages 2 to 5 will like this book.

This would be a great gift for a child's birthday, Easter or anytime! You can purchase "Everybody Loves Hazel on
