The Berenstain Bears Storybook Bible
TITLE: The Berenstain Bears Storybook Bible
AUTHOR: Jan and Mike Berenstain
In this storybook Bible you will be able to share some favorite Bible stories told "Berenstain Bear style." Included are several Old Testament stories like creation, Noah's ark, and Daniel in the lions' den. There are a few New Testament stories too like the birth of Jesus and some of the parables he taught. I really liked the illustration and description used for the crucifixion. Many times I will see children's storybook Bibles skip over this part and I liked how this one included that story. The people characters were all bears (I will admit it was a little odd seeing the Bible characters as bears, but it does say at the beginning that the cubs imagined the characters as bears!).
This version also comes with a CD so you can listen to the stories together or a child can enjoy the book on her own. It is read by Angela Park, and she has a good voice for this.
The bright colorful pictures will hold the interest of youngsters as they listen to these stories. This would make a nice book to add to your home library to read before bed each night.
This book was sent to me by the publisher for my honest review. Thank you.
