Berenstain Bears get us ready for Spring!

Many of you probably herd that Jan Berenstain passed away a short while ago. Stan several years prior, so she was teaming up with their son Mike to continue the Berenstain Bear tradition.  I remember reading the about the Bears when I was a child and reading them to my little sister. As I had children of my own we purchased just about every one of the books available! We still have a huge collection, much loved and worn. In the same tradition are 2 new books just in time for Spring and Easter. Stickers included in each book! Excellent books to bring back the true meaning of Easter for the little ones! Perfect for Sunday School classes! Add these 2 to your collection for all the young and old to enjoy!!

In THE BERENSTAIN BEARS ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL (Zonderkidz; $4.99; February 2012), Brother and Sister Bear are delighted when their Sunday school teacher Missus Ursula takes the class on a special nature walk around Bear Country. While the cubs are skeptical about the connection between a hike and church, they quickly learn that God is the creator of all things in the environment - from the succulent strawberries of Farmer Ben's farm to the lovable ducks paddling away in a nearby stream. All Things Bright and Beautiful captures the  essence of spring, inspiring children with its pastel illustrations of beautiful scenery and a heartfelt message told with the help of the lyrics to a traditional church hymn.


In the THE BERENSTAIN BEARS AND THE EASTER STORY (Zonderkidz; $4.99; February 2012), Brother, Sister and Honey Bear learn that there is more to Easter than chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks and jelly beans when their Sunday school teacher has them sit in on a play entitled The Easter Story. This new book evokes the true meaning behind Easter as the Bear cubs learn about Jesus' resurrection. Young readers learn that while it is okay to indulge in Easter goodies, they must not forget that salvation is much sweeter than candy.
