Very cute movie with great songs and message
6 February 2006 | by imdb-7798See all my reviews

My children loved Esther. The format was slightly different; it didn't include a "Silly Song" segment, but there was a very silly song about puppies. And my children absolutely loved Esther's song. They got the message about being courageous and trusting God during difficult situations. It was a serious story, but they handled the touchy topics in a way that got the basic idea across without making it too serious, gruesome, or graphic for kids...the usual VeggieTales way. For example instead of being executed, criminals were sent to the Isle of Perpetual Tickling. My children and I highly recommend Esther; they learned a lot, laughed a lot, and sang a lot.
