Review - The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel

ZonderKidz; 24 pages; $3.99; Amazon

Arriving in bookstores tomorrow from ZonderKidz is The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel by Mike Berenstain, the son of the original authors, Stan and Jan Berenstain.

Set a week before Christmas, the 24-page story centers on Brother, Sister, and Honey waking up to find that it had snowed during the night. After breakfast, they excitedly head out side where they plan on building a snowman.

However, there is one problem, they don't exactly know what kind of snowman they want to build. After some thought, they decided to build a snow angel.

Final Thoughts: Similar to other recent releases in the series, The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel has a Christian theme. The first half the book features Brother, Sister, and Honey building a snow angel in the yard. The rest of story centers on Papa and Mama Bear explaining on why Gabriel was called the Christmas angel, and how angels are the messengers of God.

There are two scriptures in the book, one on the opening page and another one towards the end when Papa and Mama are telling the cubs about angels. 

Overall, I thought The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel is a cute picture book with colorful illustrations.

About the Author: Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Though Stan died in 2005, and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from the studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.
