It is already the first Sunday of Lent, and Easter will arrive early this year.  One fun way to get the family focused on the season is with The Very Veggie Easter Collection!  The set contains two VeggieTales® DVDs:  An Easter Carol and Twas the Night before Easter.  There are also two CDs of worship music sung by the Veggie characters - A Very Veggie Easter and Hosanna! included.

The movies and songs have all of the things we love about the Veggies.  They are fun and sometimes silly but they are Christian themed and clean fun for the family.

It is never too early to learn about the redemption we have received through The Passion of our Lord.  Bob, Larry, and their friends star in these two seasonal favorites which touch on the Easter message in kid friendly language and provide a great starting point for more in depth conversations.

An Easter Carol (DVD - 49 Minutes)
You can probably guess that this is a spin on the Dickens tale.  Ebenezer Nezzer is up to no good again. He wants to make a ton of money selling mechanical Easter chickens and plastic eggs.  Bob, Larry and a music box angel named Hope (played by Christian singer and writer Rebecca St. James) teach him the true meaning of Christ's death and Resurrection.

'Twas the Night Before Easter (DVD -  48 Minutes)
This movie that was originally released in 2011 is also set during Easter time, and the Easter message is mentioned in the movie, but it more about helping others and about sacrifice.

Set in Crisper County, news reporter Marlee Meade (Petunia Rhubarb) is feeling tired of her job and wants to find a way to help others and make a difference in the community.  When she learns that the old town theater is going to be shut down, she comes up with a plan to put on a musical show that will save the theater.  It seems like a perfect way to give back to the community and Marlee is sure that  "Up With Bunnies" will be a show to remember - until she hears that the amazingly talented singer Cassie Cassava is coming to town to sing at the church Easter Services!  Suddenly he hope turns to anxiety and she is convinced that this turn of events will doom the show.  Marlee begins to hatch a crazy plot - will she snap out of it before she does more harm than good?

There are also two music CDs - A Very Veggie Easter and Hosanna!
