Book Review: The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel
In the newest Berenstain Bears Living Lights book, The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel, the cubs discover there’s more to angels than wings and flowing white robes!
It is almost Christmas and there is finally snow in Bear Country. Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear are ready for some winter fun! But when they can’t decide what kind of snowbear to build, Honey Bear’s snow angel gives the older cubs a great idea. Soon the cubs have built a Christmas snow angel. Later, as they warm up with some hot cocoa, Mama and Papa give the cubs a little lesson about some very special angels and the work they do for God.
One thing that my kids seem to want to know more about is angels and this was a cute story that shares some stories about angels. After the story is complete there is some scriptures to guide your family in discussing angels with your kids. Some of the stories in the back that you can discuss with your kids include: Angels ascend and descend from Heaven in Jacobs dream, and angel appearing to Gideon, and angel bringing food to Elijah in the wilderness, Daniel in the Lion's den, helping Peter get out of prison, and in revelation.
The angel story in this book is of course the Christmas story. I love that the bears made a snow angel... once snow flies here I know we will be trying our best to create an angel.
Pick up this book now as you start preparations for Christmas season!
