The Berenstain Bears and A Job Well Done

Zonderkidz (April 9, 2010)

***Special thanks to Krista Ocier of Zondervan for sending me a review copy.***


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. Mike is married to Andrea, and they have three children. They live in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks a lot like Bear Country.

My Thoughts:
My kids and I have a large collection of Berenstain Bear books. We love reading them. So I was very excited to read and review some new ones. When Berenstain Bears and the Job Well-Done arrived in the mail, I pulled it out, and immediately my kids asked me to read it to them. I did! We all enjoyed it. It was a cute family-centered story with a theme of hard work and working together. I loved the image of the entire family going out to work. Years ago, it was common for everyone to have their own job, and the whole family would work together. It is not so common anymore, but it should be! Mama and Papa referred to the Bible when teaching the kids, which is a great practice. Overall, this was a nice children's book, and I'm sure we'll read it again and again!
