WINNER: Carmen – sweepluv09@xxxxxx
I know I have a lot of VeggieTales fans who follow this site! There is a brand new movie which is coming out on August 11th called, The Penniless Princess. We were able to watch this movie and let’s just say my 3 (nearly 4) year old just fell in love with it. Here is a little bit about the movie:
Sara Crew moves from Africa to London with her father. When her dad goes off to war, she is sent to a boarding school where the head-mistress is less than compassionate. She makes a strong friendship with one little girl and a servent. When Sara learns that her father was killed (and the fortune was lost as well), her entire world is flipped upside down. She is no longer allowed to be a student at the school, but rather an orphan. She shares her love of others no matter the situation. She shows compassion in the darkest of circumstances. In the end, one of her father’s friends finds her and adopts her (after he learns that she is the poor servant girl living next door to him).
I loved how this movie teaches compassion, no matter what life throws at you. It is important for children to know that even when things are not perfect in our own lives, we need to remember to be kind unto others. I truly loved how it helped to teach my own children how help those who are less fortunate than them.
