The Berenstain Bears and A Job Well Done

***Special thanks to Krista Ocier of Zondervan for sending me a review copy.***


ABOUT THE AUTHORS:



Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Mike is married to Andrea, and they have three children. They live in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks a lot like Bear Country.

REVIEW:
My kids grew up with The Berenstain Bears books. I used to read tons of them to my kids when they were younger. I did not like some of them that portrayed Papa Bear as an incapable leader who made all kinds of mistakes while showing Mama Bear as the rescuer who had more sense. Therefore, I'm so glad to see the new and improved Berenstain Bears series (Living Lights) by Jan and Mike Berenstain (son of Stan and Jan). "Living Lights Berenstain Bear books help children learn how God wants them to live every day." (from the back cover) In this book, Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear (the toddler) were supposed to be cleaning their playhouse but chose to play baseball, instead. Then Papa Bear points out to them what the Bible says about working hard, getting the job done, and enjoying your work. At the end of the book, you will find questions for discussion and fun activities for kids to do. I think this new series is really cool.
