How do you teach you child about God’s Plan?
Rating: [yasr_overall_rating size=”small”] This is one of those parenting teachable moments that both parents and kids have to learn. It can be hard as we rush around in our day to day responsibilities and then faced with something that can shake up our seemingly peaceful lives. This is one of the many lessons taught in the classic story of Noah with a Veggie Tales twist.
In VeggieTales: Noahs Ark, this delightful DVD tells the story of Shem (Noah’s son) coming home from his honeymoon and finding his dad Noah has received a message from God to build an ark. Not just an ark to hold Noah and his family but also to house all the animals of the world. It was a great cartoon for both parents and kids with a good lesson about plans. I think choosing to interweave a universal message into this biblical story really helped normalize the tale for those of us that may not be as religious. You can also get the DVD at Veggietales.com

So I took this DVD with me on a trip to North Carolina this past weekend and honestly I had it on as a simple distraction so I could organize our suitcases while they had a snack and watched television. I found myself wanting to watch the cartoon as well. Both my 3 and 4 year old stayed stuck to the television taking in every word and every lesson.
Starring Wayne Brady and Jaci Velasquez, along with Larry the Cucumber, Bob the Tomato and a whole crew of Veggies, NOAH’S ARK is now available on DVD and digital download.
In NOAH’S ARK, Brady, the multi-Emmy® award-winning host of one of TV’s most famous game shows, Let’s Make a Deal, and star of Whose Line Is It Anyway, brings to life Noah’s son Shem, who first questions, then learns to embrace, his father’s direction from God. Christian singer, actress and radio host Jaci Velasquez co-stars as Shem’s wife, Sadie.
“Saying ‘yes’ to VeggieTales was a no-brainer – my daughter’s a fan and I love the music and messages,” says Brady, who performs seven original songs in NOAH’S ARK. “The best part is, Bob and Larry are down to earth and they never let the ‘I’m a global Veggie superstar’ thing go to their heads.”
I absolutely adore Wayne Brady in this. I think he brings a lot of believable emotion to the character of Shem and I love his singing voice. The kids loved him and I like how he was the main protagonist/character in the story and learned a lesson.
In the story, Shem doesn’t understand Noah’s unshakable faith in God, particularly when animals start arriving two-by-two – while the rain is nowhere to be seen. When the deluge does come, Shem begins to understand Noah’s determination to preserve humanity’s future … and the importance of trusting in God.
Less than three weeks after the DVD and digital download release of NOAH’S ARK, the VeggieTales excitement continues when five all-new episodes of VeggieTales In The House, the hit animated series, debut exclusively on Netflix – bringing the total of VeggieTales In the House episodes to 15 as the series continues its first season.
