We are big Berenstain Bears fans in this house. You've seen many of our reviews before (God Shows the Way, God Bless Our Country, The Biggest Brag, etc) and we just can't get enough of these little bears. I love how each story focuses on character development without being self-righteous. And how in the end, Mama and Papa, although not perfect, aren't made out to be foolish.
This pocket sized devotional is the latest in the Berenstain Bears collection. This bedtime devotional is divided into nine sections each illustrating another attribute of God's character. For example, the Be A Good Friend section includes stories about how to develop good friendships and be loyal to others. Each devotion is a short one page including a story, verse, picture, and prayers. Some devotions also have a "Carry On Cub" portion, a call to action of sorts encouraging the reader to take further steps.
Priced at $12 for this hardcover edition, this would make a great gift idea for the holidays coming up. Written for ages 4-8 years, this devotional is a great place for children and parents to begin growing together in God's word and establishing nightly devotions. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
