Join Ella the Elephant and her kindhearted friends in this all-new animated series from Disney Junior featuring 8 charming episodes. Elephant Island is home to many curiosities, but when Ella and her friends’ appetite for fun lands them in some tricky, often hilarious situations, it’s up to Ella’s imagination and her magic red hat to save the day! It’s a collection of teamwork, lessons and adventure for the whole family to enjoy. I have some copies of Ella the Elephant to give away! Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with Ella in the subject line and tell me your favorite fictional animal. Don’t forget your address! (U.S. addresses only.) I will pick the winners at random on September 20, 2014. Good luck!

Country star Kellie Pickler joins the cast in “Beauty and the Beet,” from the Veggie Tales folks, coming out October 14, 2014. (With a name like that, it was just a question of time!) BEAUTY AND THE BEET, a brand-new VeggieTales musical that premieres Oct. 14 exclusively on DVD and digital download.
She plays Mirabelle, a sweet-potato singer whose family band is on the brink of superstardom. The companion CD features 10 brand-new songs, including an all-veggie rendition of the classic Christmas carol “Deck the Halls.”
Mirabelle’s family car breaks down en route to their biggest concert ever and they end up staying with Finnegan J. Beet, the bitter and lonely owner of a rundown mountaintop resort. Matching the Beet’s heartless actions with her own genuinely sweet nature, Mirabelle proves that just as God loves us all whether we deserve it or not, unconditional love is its own reward.
A great video for Back to School from the hilarious Holderness family!
