The Berenstain Bears and the Gift of Courage

Zonderkidz (April 9, 2010)

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


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.

MY REVIEW-I have to tell you, I was really impressed with this book. Our family had checked out the Berenstain Bear books before and had gotten rid of them because it seemed like they were always making fun of the father and just some other little things we didn't care for as a family. But I heard that they had started writing Christian books now and so I decided to review one and try it out.
It was great! There were Scripture references in it, this one tells the story of David and Goliath, and it is encouraging children in reading the Bible and Godly lessons. Thank you for making books that I can read with the family!
