It was a great learning lesson for my five year old daughter and an important reminder for me as well. Especially in a time where beauty is supposedly only found in the outer appearance, this story portrays the opposite. God sees our beauty from within :)
My girls really liked both segments, and also got the message that beauty comes from the heart. They love to quote the scripture about people looking at outward appearances, but God looks at the heart.
I recently bought both this one and "Drummer Boy" veggie tales movie. I have to tell you. I was impressed with both of them. The Biblical message was more central than it has been in the past Veggie Tales (ever since it originally went out of business it seems the message moved ever so sharply away from the centrality of the Bible and more to love, love, and more love). This was a clear message that stuck against the world's view of beauty and value. This is a much needed message today and I praise God that it seems that Veggie Tales appears to be "righting the ship".
