The Berenstain Bears' Easter Blessing
An engaging lesson from the iconic Bear family about the true blessing of Easter-the Resurrection of Jesus. Stan and Jan Berenstain launched the Berenstain Bears books in 1962 with The Big Honey Hunt. Since that time, more than 365 Berenstain Bears books have been published, making it one of the best-selling children's series ever. Today, more than fifty years later, Mike Berenstain continues his parents' tradition of creating warm and engaging stories featuring the lovable Bear family--Papa, Mama, Brother, Sister, and Honey--now in a board book format. In The Berenstain Bears' Easter Blessings, the cubs learn about the many blessings in their lives, and especially the greatest blessing of all-the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter. The short, simple story and well-loved characters provide toddlers with a perfect introduction to this very important Christian holiday. Ages 2 to 5.
My thoughts: I loved the Berenstain Bears' when I was a young child! So, I am thrilled to see some new titles coming out to share with my own children. This board book is a great way to talk about Easter blessings with one's children, especially the greatest gift of all: Jesus Christ. My little girl has enjoyed my reading this book to her countless times already! I think it would make a wonderful gift for Easter Sunday.
I received this book from First Look in exchange for my honest review.
