The Berenstain Bears: God Bless Our Country
Mike Berenstain brings his own perspective to the Berenstain Bears line, as he now writes and illustrates the series begun by his parents, Jan and Stan Berenstain. Mike Berenstain's writing is different in that he very deliberately directs children to the Bible and advocates an attitude of thankfulness and praise for His mercy and protection over our land. I think his illustrations are even better than the originals!
"Woodjie" (8) is very much enamoured of this book. I had to snatch it from him for a bit to write this review. He's not sure where he will put the stickers that come with the book yet, but his sister might get one or two. He helped me read the story and giggled at some of the pictures.
I'm going to be reading this one several more times myself. Looking through the book, you're almost in the country with Mama, Papa, Brother, Sister and little Honey Bear, watching the streamers fly in the breeze.
