Autumn is a beautiful time of year, and the folks of Bear Country are looking forward to everything the season brings. So when the Chapel in the Woods holds its first ever Harvest Festival, people gather at Farmer Ben’s for a wonderful time of family, friends, fun, and praising God for his gifts.

I loved this book. It was interesting and I loved reading about going to the Berenstain Bears' Harvest Festival. They got to pick bushels of apples, pick out their perfect pumpkins, go on a hayride, and enjoy God's bounty. It also teaches that it isn't Mother Nature that's in charge of Autumn weather and the harvest, but it's God, so we need to give thanks to him. Discuss questions and activities are included. 

I give this book 5 stars.

The Berenstain Bears Storybook Bible for Toddlers is perfect for young children. Now toddlers have a padded board book edition designed just for them, with simple text, bright art, and a padded cover. This cute and durable edition provides an overview of the Bible with ten stories from the Old and New Testaments that follow the Bear family as they explore Scripture. The Berenstain Bears Storybook Bible for Toddlers is fun and enlightening for kids and a great resource for parents and educators. 

A great sturdy storybook Bible for toddlers!  It is also available in e-book.  It includes the story of creation, Noah's ark, David and Goliath, Daniel in the lions den, the birth of Jesus, the Good Samaritan, and other stories told in simple to understand language. Great for nurseries to read to the babies for a short Bible lesson or to read as devotions for toddlers. The Bible characters are drawn as bears. Really cute. But a bit simple for 8 year olds. I think its meant for younger children. 

3 stars for older children, 5 stars for babies. Average 4 stars.
