No stranger to the VeggieTales world, when opportunity blew dust in my face there was no way I could sneeze this one out the door! My daughter and I popped some popcorn, grabbed blankets, our favorite pillows and snuggled in for some perfect Mommy & Me time.
The Penniless Princess: God’s Little Girl is a fabulous story about princess Sara. As with all VeggieTales movies, there is a wonderful lesson built into the storyline. The Penniless Princess did not disappoint! Perfectly geared towards a four year old full on diva princess viewer (otherwise known as my daughter), Sara captured and held the attention of both mom and daughter.
Starting her adventures in life at a point where she has every ruffled, frilly, tulle encumbered dress and matching shoes a little girl could want along with a hoard of giggly friends, Sara is a very likeable fun girlie girl. As happens often in real life, Sara’s life experiences dramatic and sudden changes. New friends, a new school and she is thrown into a life offering her little in the way of materialistic things. She goes from rags to riches and is suddenly at a loss as to who she is and if she is still really a princess inside.
Learning self worth and where it comes from is a super important lesson especially in the life of a little girl. Remembering the lessons her father taught her, Sara demonstrates and teaches viewers that true worth comes from looking at yourself through God’s eyes. By keeping a positive attitude regardless of the situation, and knowing your self worth will always properly place material “things” in life as inconsequential to the true you.
Full of fun music, real princesses and applicable life lessons, VeggieTales masters yet another super important learning opportunity for the young girl in your life! Below is a trailer for this great movie!
