My four year old daughter has been enjoying brand new to her stories from her favorite furry family the Bernstein Bears. Their stories are filled with good morals, life lessons and wholesomeness enjoyed by our whole family (I’ve been a fan since I was a little girl too)!
Recently released by Zonderkidz, The Berenstain Bears Very Beary Stories: 3 Books in 1 (Berenstain Bears/Living Lights: A Faith Story) has taken up a good amount of our Summer reading times. This selection as stated in the title includes not just one but three full length stories!
The stories are: The Berenstain Bears Play a Fair Game, The Berenstain Bears Respect Each Other and The Berenstain Bears Get the Job Done. The first story is about peace-making, the second story is about good manners and respect and the third story is about working together even when other things may seem more fun.
The art work is nice. The colors aren’t dull at all. What is happening in the stories is pictured well in the actions and facial expressions of the characters.
It’s great each story starts with a Bible verse.
It’s important to also note that this is a Beginner Reading Level 1 Book. The sentences are short and feature familiar words. There are simple concepts for eager children to read on their own. My little one isn’t quite at this level yet but I do point out sight words and take my finger along each word as I read to her for early recognition.
Each story is roughly 25-30 pages in length. I know that sounds like a lot but do know that most pages only have one sentence each on them.
This 3-1 collection has been welcome in our home. We recommend it!
You can purchase a copy for the Kindle, Audio and Hardcover on Amazon.com and other retailers.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book from Zonderkidz in exchange for an honest review.
