A few months ago I introduced Jude to Veggie Tales with the release of Pistachio. At the beginning of the Pistachio DVD there is preview for Sweet Pea Beauty, which Jude found absolutely amazing. So when I was given the opportunity to review the newest release from Big Idea Pictures, VeggieTales: Sweet Pea Beauty – A Girl After God’s Own Heart, I knew Jude would just love it.
Despite what you may think Sweet Pea Beauty isn’t just a story for girls. I think boys and girls alike can benefit from the lessons and principals of being valuable in the eyes of God, and not finding your beauty or worth in physical appearance or materials. I also really like the Snoodlerella musical which also carries the same theme. Jude of course loves all the music and Silly Song. I also really like the Nicole Nordeman song, “Beautiful for Me” during the credits, I used to listen to Nicole Nordeman in college and she has a great voice and is a great song writer.
About Sweet Pea Beauty
Once upon a time, there lived a royally sour blueberry, a fair rhubarb maiden and a dastardly deceptive mirror! Sweetpea Beauty knows that what’s on the inside is what matters most, but insecure Queen Blueberry can’t see past her own reflection! So, when a decree is handed down that only the most beautiful can rule the land, the Queen gets nervous and things turn ugly! Banished to the dark forest, Sweetpea’s fate seems bleak until a charming prince, a band of merry minstrels and seven snow peas come to the rescue! Will Sweetpea and her friends be able to warn the Queen in time to save her from the clutches of the tricky mirror – or will the crumbling kingdom and the Queen’s own heart be lost forever? Find out in this fairy “Veggie” tale about the real meaning of true beauty.
