I enjoy the Berenstain Bears. I always have. Thousands of kids year after year laugh over and learn from the exploits of the cubs. Now those same kids will learn Biblical precepts and Bible verses, too. In the back of the book are questions for parents to ask their children that will help them process and understand the story — and help the parents and children bond over important communication issues. There are also a couple of activities to keep the kids thinking about what they’ve learned. I highly approve! Jan & Mike Berenstain have taken these bears from great to fantabulous!

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.
