The I Can Read! VeggieTales Collection (Junior Battles to be His Best, Bob and Larry in The Case of the Missing Patience, The Fairest Town in the West, and Bob and Larry's Creation Vacation) are fun books for children who enjoy watching Veggie Tales. They are new stories with good morals that first graders can read to themselves. Even toddlers will enjoy looking at their favorite characters and will sit still for a VeggieTales story. There are large pictures on every page with a few lines of text. Nice, simple, and cute, these books teach fairness, patience, self-confidence, and the story of creation. – Jennifer Joneleit,
