VeggieTales - Junior Comes Clean - I'm Giving One Away!

If you are in children's ministry you can pretty well figure the children - and parents - in your children's ministry know who Junior from VeggieTales is. You can also figure these children likely struggle with telling the truth from time to time. So, when you can combine Junior, a solid message about telling the truth and VeggieTale fun, well, you have a book which is not only enjoyable, but one which children can learn from as well!

Junior Comes Clean
Author - Karen Poth
Publisher - Zonderkidz
Ages - 4+

Favorite Features - 
  • Filled with loved VeggieTales friends
  • Solid message about how God wants us to tell the truth
  • Colorful VeggieTales illustrations
  • I Can Read Beginning Reading level 1 book with simple sentences for new readers
This is a fun VeggieTales "detective" story where Detective Larry and his partner Bob had to solve the mystery of who was making such a mess at the Asparagus' home! I love how in the end Junior, comes clean, tells the truth and his parents forgive him! When you read this book be sure to talk with the children in your class about how God wants us all to tell the truth. Challenge them to be like Junior and "come clean" if there is something they have been untruthful about and remind them about how God always forgives when we ask Him for forgiveness!

  1. I follow you in my blogger dashboard. I copied the address and added it as a blog I wanted to read. I am not sure which way this counts as.
