We recently got the opportunity to check out a new product from the VeggieTales company, Big Idea, through Family Christian. They have put your favorite characters and stories into comic books! Supercomics to be exact!!
Now I have never been a huge fan of comic books but my son is. He discovered graphic novels not too long ago and fell in love with them. As we have struggled with getting him to read in the past, any way I see him wanting to read, I take it. That's another reason I love these new products.
The Volume 1 comic book offers some of the original stories including Dave and the Giant Pickle, Lyle and the Kindly Viking and Larry-Boy and the Prideosaurus.
This particular book focuses on the lessons of self-esteem and sharing among others.
The Volume 2 Book covers three more stories. These include League of Incredible Vegetables ( one of our favorites), Larry Boy and the Reckless Ruckus and Josh and the Big Wall (another of our favorites).
The lessons in that book focus on items like fear, obedience and knowing how to say you're sorry. I can tell you from experience that the League of Incredible Vegetables came at a time when my son was dealing with extreme fear and sleeping problems. That was such a God send, literally, as it helped him , and me, to deal with those emotions.
These books are beautifully done with bright colors and they draw you in. These are familiar stories to any of you who have been with VeggieTales before but they are presented in a new way.
One thing you might notice is the characters have gotten a little bit of a facelift. They have been updated and while it took us a little bit to get used to them, they are still the same old crazy Larry and Bob you've fallen in love with.
So now, guess what?!?!?! I get to give away a copy of each of these Comics to one of my lucky readers! Be sure to enter the giveaway below and share it with your friends!!!
