Children's Book Review: The Berenstain Bears' Easter Blessings
"The Berenstain Bears' Easter Blessings" is an adorable and bright board book that teaches children to count their blessings. The story begins with the classic family giving thanks in prayer for their Easter breakfast. When Gramps and Gran come by with Easter treats, the cubs must wait until after church to enjoy their candy. In the mean time, their parents and grandparents teach them to count their blessings, such as a glorious spring morning, a fine tree house, friends and family who fill various occupations necessary to society, and a lovely chapel in the woods. Now at church, the family listens as their pastor gives thanks for the greatest blessing of all: "Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." It's a simple way to help children consider the meaning of Easter and how Christ's blessing affects all aspects of our lives. Parents reading this book to their children may enjoy creating various voices for the different Berenstain Bears. The book also opens the door for lessons in vocation and the purpose of the church.
