Item description for I Can be Your Friend (CD) (A Veggie Tales Gift Book) by Phil Vischer, Casey Jones & Karen Poth...

Friends come in all shapes and sizes. And sometimes the best friends are the ones we overlook because we don't accept their differences. I Can Be Your Friend colorfully illustrates exactly what it means to be a friend and imparts an important message for children that will last a lifetime. Children will love hearing the accompanying CD of the song made popular by their favorite VeggieTales(R) characters and will want to see the pictures and hear the story time and time again as Bob and Larry share ways to be the friend God intends children-and adults-to be.

More About Phil Vischer, Casey Jones & Karen Poth

Phil Vischer Phil Vischer was born June 16, 1966 in Muscatine, Iowa and grew-up in Chicago, Illinois.

He attended St. Paul Bible College and got involved with the puppet ministry where he met Mike Nawrocki. Vischer originally wanted to go to film school after Bible college but never made it. He ended up working for Amoco and Montgomery Ward as a truckdriver afterwards.

Vischer founded GRAFx Studios 1989, after buying animation software, in order to produce animated commercials and logos. That same year he animated and directed Mr. Cuke's Screen Test featuring Larry the Cucumber. In early 1993, he teamed up with Mike Nawrocki and started Big Idea Productions (now Big Idea Entertainment).

From 1993 to 2002, Vischer led the company as lead director and writer. In 2003 (after the release of Jonah) Big Idea went bankrupt, and Vischer sold the company to Classic Media and left the company.

In 2005 he started Jellyfish Labs a new creative workshop where he produces faith-based projects. In 2007 Vischer expanded the company by launching JellyTelly. Starting in 2010, Vischer produced What's In The Bible, a direct-to-DVD video series using puppetry and animation to present biblical material using a news-broadcast format and puppet characters. Vischer still works on VeggieTales as a scriptwriter and voice actor, as well as serving as Big Idea's president under a contract by Classic Media. He currently lives in Wheaton, Illinois with his wife Lisa and two daughters, Sydney and Shelby, and his son, Jeremy.

Vischer has hosted a weekly podcast discussing life in a post-Christian America since 2012. The podcast, co-hosted by Christianity Today editor Skye Jethani and actress Christian Taylor, ranks in the top 100 podcasts regularly.

Reviews - What do customers think about I Can be Your Friend (CD) (A Veggie Tales Gift Book)?

This Is Just A Book of Lyrics To One Song  Feb 18, 2007
The book and CD are nice,... but not what I expected.

Without an accurate description of this book on this page, it was hard to know exactly what was in this one. The book basically contains the lyrics to the song, "I Can Be Your Friend", written by Phil Vischer. A CD is enclosed with the book in a plastic holder inside the front cover. The CD contains the single of "I Can Be Your Friend" and lasts all of 1 minute and 26 seconds.

The plastic holder is firmly attached to the book and seems durable and strong enough to withstand numerous uses getting the CD in and out.

The song itself rates a full 5 stars and then some! I think Phil Vischer has incredible talent when it comes to structuring and rhyming phrases that make total sense and are fun to listen to. The song also contains the original voices of Bob and Larry and gang so if you are familiar with Veggie Tales, it's the same song you are used to hearing.

I was a bit disappointed in the book, though. There is a 2 page intro and then 24 pages covering the lyrics to the song and 2 pages wrapping up with the traditional "Remember! God made you special and he loves you very much!" I was hoping for a new story in this one about friendship... or even the story, "The Gourds Must Be Crazy", from the DVD - Are You My Neighbor? which is where this song first appears. But that was not the case.

The book has some wonderful illustrations of the Veggie Tales characters, but be aware that much of the book is full of photographs of real kids. I prefer the colorful illustrations of vegetables (and sometimes fruit!), but kids may be able to relate to the actual pictures of other kids to see how they show friendship.

The real kids pictures are shown in cartoon picture frames so I may just cut my own pictures to size and attach them in those spots so my kids can relate to the pictures more and at the same time, personalize the book for them. That would make this OK book, fantastic!

Phil Vischer's song "I Can Be Your Friend" - 5 stars!
Accompanying CD (although it is very short) - 5 stars
The presentation of that song and concept in this book - 3 stars
