Little Drummer Boy

Posted on November 18, 2011 at 3:40 pm

The wonderful folks at Veggie Tales have a new DVD for the holidays, Little Drummer Boy, based on the classic Christmas carol.  In this version, Junior Asparagus hears the story of a little boy whose heart was filled with bitterness and anger when his home was destroyed until the birth of Jesus inspired him to find hope and forgiveness.  They have their own Veggie twist on the story with some gentle silly humor, of course, plus Bebe and Cece Winans on the soundtrack.

I have a copy to give away PLUS a special drummer boy surprise.  Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Drummer” in the subject line and don’t forget your address!  I will pick a winner on November 26.  Good luck!

The Night Before Christmas…and More Classic Holiday Tales

Posted on December 13, 2010 at 6:00 pm

My very favorite DVD series for families has a wonderful holiday treat: The Night Before Christmas…and More Classic Holiday Tales. Twelve beloved family classics come to life, including the Christmas stories “The Night Before Christmas,” “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” “The Clown of God,” and “Great Joy.” The collection also features the Hannukah story, “In the Month of Kislev,” and a saga of the African American holiday, “Seven Candles for Kwanzaa.” As always with Scholastic, every story is beautifully animated and narrated. This is a true treasure. And I have one to give away to the first person who emails me at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Scholastic” in the subject line and tell me your favorite holiday song. Don’t forget your address!
