We have 3 great new Veggie Tales books in our home that I’d like to share with you today.
First is Yuletide Ice Cube Fair by Karen Poth. The Veggie Tales characters are all getting ready for Christmas! They ice skate and then hear the bell calling them over to the annual ice cube carving contest. Everyone works hard creating their incredible carvings to display what Christmas means to them. The finalists are a shopping mall, angels singing, the peas winning the prize, and a Christmas feast. But the winner is Junior who carved a tiny stable with a little baby and a shepherd kneeling down. That displayed what Christmas truly is about! You’ll also find two Scriptures from Luke 2 in this paperback book of 20 pages. The book is best for ages 4-8.
The next two books are Level 1 “I Can Read” books. These are always a hit in my home where I have beginning readers. The titles are Sheerluck Holmes and The Case of the Missing Friend and The Mess Detectives and the Case of the Lost Temper, both by Karen Poth.
In Sheerluck Holmes and The Case of the Missing Friend Sheer luck Holmes and Bobby Watson have to solve the mystery of what happened to their friend who disappeared from the pizza place. They find a note he left that said he was leaving because his feelings had been hurt. The ones who hurt his feelings confess, find Sniffy, and ask for forgiveness.
In The Mess Detectives and the Case of the Lost Temper Bob and Larry and trying to solve the mystery of the Masked Door Slammer. But the story is really about bob who is really in a bad mood. He gets madder and madder as the sort goes on, and finally he loses his temper. Larry explains that Bob is being just like the Masked Door Slammer by losing his temper. Bob realizes that he is right and chooses not to “let his anger run wild” anymore.
