This book is awesome for teaching patience. One thing happens after another in the story. If it's not something then it's something else that goes wrong for Bob and Larry. They learn to be patient and they also learn how mean words can be hurtful. This book is also great for teaching understanding. We are all a little more understanding of other's situations if we've been through some things ourselves.

Good message about patience while teaching! "A person's wisdom yields patience." -Proverbs 19:11
Sadly, based on my level of patience sometimes, I am not as wise as I would like to be. Something to work on. This series is a fun one for young children to practice their reading skills on while reminding parents of important principles. Very nice.

I'm losing patience waiting to find out what happened with the Masked Door Slammer. They dropped that case quickly, thus the two star rating. Ultimately it's a decent story about patience, but the quality of the story is typical of run-of-the-mill children's books. I expected a little more from the Veggies.

VeggieTales is a staple in our home so it is no surprise to enjoy early readers with familiar vegetable faces and moral lessons and stories full of silliness. The case of the missing patience is a great "private i" story showing that one may need to reflect on their own behavior as well as or even more than others.
