I enjoyed the last Berenstain Bears that I got for review, so when I saw that they had another collection I decided to request it too. To be completely honest, we are a Berenstain Bears family. My son enjoys them, in book form or watching the TV show. So I am not sure if I can be very objective in this review.  I like this collection, it has 12 stories in it. These stories are part of the Living Lights collection, which means that they have faith based themes.  Each story deals with a specific issue, whether it’s prayer, gossiping or bragging. Brother and Sister Bear learns more about their faith and their characters in these stories. The solutions are biblical and addressed in a manner that kids can relate to and make sense of. I think that this is a nice collection of classical stories to add to any family library. While, it may take more than 5 minutes to read (and discuss) the story, they are not overly long and they are sure to hold the attention of any child.

Again, I would recommend this to any family. As a side note, if you have already started collecting any Berenstain Bears books, I would suggest checking the table of contents since this is a bind up of 12 previously published stories.

Always Shine!

This is a nice collection of five Berenstain Bears books.  Each story highlights one (or more) aspect friendship and family relationships. This was a great set of stories to share with my kids, and it was a bit nostalgic for me. The writing style was familiar for the most part. Perfect Fishing Spot threw me off a bit because I was not expecting the rhyming. But it was cute, fun and had a lesson at the end.  This collection touches on a variety of issues that children will encounter. How do you treat someone who’s different? What if your best friend gets a new friend? What happens when you are kind to someone? All of these issues are explored but comes with a Biblical resolution. I am happy to add this book to my kids’ collection, and I think that most people will be too.
