  • Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving

    VeggieTales, Big Idea, 2009
    List: $14.98 DVD
    DVD 45 minutes
    Ages: 4-8

    Animated story features Veggie characters in a fanciful tale. The story, taking liberties with Nicholas' tradition, portrays a lost little boy who travels to find meaning only to return home where a classic selfish villain has taken over, prohibiting all kinds of gift giving. With usual Veggie humor and appeal, there is a nice emphasis on giving. This tale may encourage further investigation to find the real story of Saint Nicholas.
