Another triumph for Big Idea Productions
7 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

The creators of VeggieTales have consistently put out some of the best Christian children's entertainment I have seen in a long time. "Dave and the Giant Pickle" is no exception.

The Biblical story of David and Goliath is told using great computer animation and a cast of (what else) vegetables. Junior Asparagus plays Dave, the youngest of Jesse's sons. While his brothers often pick on him because of his size, Dave realizes that "little guys can do big things, too" as he ventures forward to face Goliath, a giant, Philistine pickle with boxing gloves.

Most of all, this movie is a perfect lesson in self-esteem. Children and parents who watch this movie are reminded that "God made them special and He loves them very much."

I would recommend this video, and the rest of the VeggieTales collection, for every family's collection.
