RobinGood 04

One of the hardest things to learn in life is how to handle emotional pain.  Most of us will be hurt or rejected by somebody we love in our lifetime, and our favorite Veggies have some great stories to help our little ones hold their heads up during these difficult times of real (or perceived) pain..

First, Larry loses his hamster and falls off the counter looking for him.  He's having an awful day!   Then, in Lenny's Lost Birthday, Lenny can't understand why everyone has forgotten his birthday!  Boy, that sure hurts!

In the main feature, Robin Good and his band of not so merry men are discouraged when their fund raising efforts to help the poor of Bethlingham are unsuccessful.  Robin's men leave him in favor of a less virtuous life.  Poor Robin is sad, and feeling rejected.  His men find their plans were not very wise, but a little bit too late.  Throughout, Robin is reminded that there is no hurt that is too big for God.  Will that be enough to encourage him, and keep him from despair?  It's a "Ham"tastic tale for the whole family.

This DVD is everything that I hope for from VeggieTales.  Good stories, sweet songs, fun extras, and Bible based lessons that our children will remember.

The bonus features include:
  • a Leap Year lesson with Larry and Junior Asparagus. 
  • "Fun"-Raising with Larry
  • "Things Will Get Better" - Singalong Song
  • "Prince of Ham" - Singalong Song
  • Robin Good's Guide to Handling Hurt - Discussion Guide
