This Book Carries a Special Message! Feb 14, 2007
This is a great, oversized board book that teaches an important lesson in acceptance. It teaches kids that God made everyone special in their own way.
It is told in a wonderful rhyme that is typical of the Veggie Tales books. Larry the cucumber is the first to say why he is special. He is green, tall and lean. Next, Bob the Tomato tells how he is round and red. The French Peas are special because they speak with "zee accent" and have a great "French-sounding sound!" Archie Asparagus is bookish and lean while Pa Grape has a white mustache and glasses... which he asks the kids if they have. (This part promptly gets a giggle out of my older son who has glasses, but no white mustache.) Madame Blueberry says how she is round like Bob but her special feature is being blue. Jimmy and Jerry tell how they are shaped like drops and Laura Carrot shares how she is orange with yellow hair. Also included is Mr. Lunt (my personal favorite) who tells how he is special with squinty eyes!
This book is very sturdy and can hold up to many readings. The pictures are big and colorful and fun to look at. Children of all ages will learn the value of accepting ourselves and the differences in others because that's the way God made us.
Great teaching book Jan 18, 2007
Great fun book for young children to emphacize how important they are and how God made them special.
Wonderful book for all ages Apr 2, 2006
I started to read this to my son when he was 5 months old. He is almost 2 years and still loves it! We do different accents for the different characters. He especially loves the outrageous french accent for the french peas. We are actually having a difficult time getting him to say "tomato" and "cucumber" - he calls them "Bob" and "Larry"!
Great, Fun Book for Babies and Toddlers Mar 3, 2006
My son received this book when he was 5 months old and he has enjoyed it since. The pictures are very appealing and the text is fun to read, especially when read with different accents! I loved it so much we purchased a copy for our new niece as a Christening gift. Great message, fun book and a delight for young and old!
I Read This Book Before!!!! Jul 16, 2005
I have read this book before to my sister, Rhiannon, and me and her are quite obsessed with it. We left it at Las Vegas, and now we desperately need another one...one we cannot lose! If we can get our mom to get it for us, we can read it over, and over, and over... It has all our favorite characters, Larry being my favorite because he's really funny and makes me laugh, and the text is easy enough for us to read. It brings us a message from God, that it makes no difference whether you're tall, short, have curly hair, etc., just remember...God made you special just the way you are!
