Review:

In my early elementary days in the late 80s, one of my favorite book series was The Berenstain Bears by the late authors Stan and Jan Berenstain. At one time I did own every book, but then as I got older, I lost interests in the series. Eventually, I let my cousins borrow the books, which I never saw my book collection ever again. Over the years, I've found a few of the books at a thrift store, so I started recollecting the series.

Since the death of Stan and Jan Berenstain, their son Mike has taken over writing and illustrating new adventures of the Berenstain Bears, but the newest books have Christian themes.

Now available in bookstores is The Berenstain Bears: God Bless Our Country, which finds the Bear family getting ready to celebrate Fourth of July in Bear County. Papa and Mama tells their cubs (Brother, Sister & Honey) the true meaning of the holiday. From the Revolutionary War to Immigration, the cubs learn how this country was born right before the cubs hop on their bikes and participate in the annual parade.

This is a cute little book that explains the birth of our country to young readers. Unlike a few of the recent Berenstain books, there isn't any unwanted preaching in the story. As an added bonus, there is 16 4th of July stickers. Overall, The Berenstain Bears: God Bless Our Country is an adorable children's books and I recommend it to others.
