Most of you are probably already familiar with the VeggieTales series, which seeks to teach Bible stories and a biblical worldview to young children. Created in the 1990’s, it became the most popular children’s Christian franchise of all time, distributing books, CD’s, video games and more.
This particular offering is a small board book which is just the right size for little hands. The message is simple and suitable for 4-6 year olds. Jesus is the light of the world, He guides us and shines through us. The artwork features bright, primary colors, making it attractive to young children. Bouncy rhymes encourage youngsters to name the lights they see around them — the fire, the stars, fireflies, the lighthouse, as illustrations of God’s light.
VERDICT: 4 STARS. Nothing extraordinary, but perfectly fine for introducing your child to some biblical concepts.
