The Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story

Between egg hunts and chocolate bunnies, children sometimes don’t hear the real Easter message. If that concerns you – and it should – maybe it’s time to find Bible centered children’ s books to read to little ones this Easter.  The Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story (a Zonderkidz publication) makes a good start.

The Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story tells the tale of some charming bears cubs who, like many children today, are caught up in the season’s excitement and seem to know little about the biblical account of Easter. A sweet Easter story children's book for the Easter basket, but nonetheless with a weak ending. (Read my full review -- including my thoughts on the story's conclusion --  in The San Diego Christian Perspectives Examiner and in Assist News Service.)
