I'm Giving Away - the Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story

Since 1962 the Berenstain Bears have helped our little ones learn Bible stories and how to treat others. I'm happy to share with you a new book . . . the Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story!

The Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story 
Authors/Illustrators - Jan & Mike Berenstain
Publisher - Zonderkidz
Ages - 4-7

Favorite Features -
  • return of loved Berenstain Bears family
  • solid message teaches children there is more to Easter than candy
  • shares the account of Jesus' death and resurrection
  • colorful illustrations - shows people, not bears as the account of Jesus is told
As you would expect, this book has all the charm of a Berenstain Bears book with the solid teaching about Jesus' death and resurrection with an emphasis on Mark 16:6 - "He has risen!" As you share this book with the children in your ministry, be ready to answer their questions about Jesus' death, rejoice with them over His resurrection and spend time praising God and thanking Him for what Jesus did for us! Talk with your children about while it is fun to hunt for eggs and receive candy, Easter - or Resurrection Sunday - is about so much more than candy!

I'm delighted to announce not only did Zonderkidz send me one copy of this book to review, but they are also making another available for me to give away!
