I was very excited when I received my Berenstain Bears package in the mail. Let me just start out by saying that I loved the Berenstain Bears as a kid. And thats an understatement! I loved the detailed pictures and heartwarming stories. I'm so happy that my daughter is getting to the age where she can enjoy the Berenstain Bears just as much as I did. And I love having an excuse to read the books again. I remember I would always flip the books over to the back where other books were pictured, to figure out which ones I wanted.
The book I received is different than the Berenstain Bears books I remember, its hardback and much larger. the copy they sent me is 'The Berenstain Bears Christmas Tree'. They also sent me a letter providing some useful info. It says that these books are a new line of Berenstain Bears books written by Michael & Jan Berenstain. Since Stan Berenstain's passing in 2005, son Michael teamed up with his mother to write a line of Berenstain Bears books focusing on the word of God. What an excellent idea, I thought. When Michael Berenstain found Christ he decided to take the word of God to the Berenstain Bears books!
The Bottom Line: This book is a treasure. Surely to be loved for many years to come. Its hardback so it will definitely last a while! I know my daughter will enjoy getting this book back out at Christmas time. Thanks PR by the Book for letting us review a copy!
