Are you looking for a great book for your early readers? I’m happy to review The Berenstain Bears God Shows the Way. It’s actually 3 books in 1! And it’s hardcover, so it will last a lot longer.
The first book is called Faith Gets Us Through. I love how each story has a Bible verse related to it. This book has Psalm 23:4.
In the story Papa Bear takes the cubs into a cave to earn their merit badge. They encounter a few fun and scary things while in there, but they had faith in God and He helped them get out safely!
The second book is called Do Not Fear, God is Near, with the verse Psalm 34:4. In this story Sister Bear has lots of things she is afraid of, especially her shadow! Brother Bear is unkind and teases her, but his parents don’t allow it and encourage him to be kind. Finally, Papa finds an ingenious way to help Sister not be afraid of her shadow anymore!
The third story is called Piggy Bank Blessings and uses the verse Proverbs 13:11. Mama teaches the cubs that they need to be careful how they spend their money and that they should save it for something special. At the end she is afraid they have blown it on something useless, but she is pleasantly surprised when she finds out what they did spend it on!
(Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)
