Children’s Corner: The Berenstain Bears’ Book of Prayers

23 Sep

61ct3zh6wnl-_sx432_bo1204203200_A collection of prayers from the iconic Berenstain Bears brand for children ages two to five.

This new prayer book for toddlers features Mama and Papa Bear, Brother, Sister, and Honey. Nearly 50 simple rhyming prayers cover a typical day and the typical worries of a young child. From waking in the morning to going to sleep at night, from thanking God for a meal to praying for His comfort when afraid, the prayers will help little ones see that any moment is a good moment to talk to God.

With its soft padded cover and convenient size, the book is the perfect way to teach children about prayer and the ways God cares for us each day.

 

My Impressions:

Prayer is important, even for little ones. The Berenstain Bears’ Book of Prayers is a great collection of simple, rhyming prayers to say with your preschooler. For every occasion — Rise and Shine, Mealtimes, Bedtime and more — this book has prayers to praise and thank God. I especially liked the sections titled Help And Guidance, Comfort and Forgiveness that have specific prayers that small children can identify with:

Dear Lord, I made a mess today
and didn’t help clean it.
I know it bothered Mom and Dad,
although I didn’t mean it.
It’s hard to say “I’m sorry”,
but that’s what I need to do.
Please help me say the words I should
to Mom and Dad and You.

Isn’t that sweet and the perfect prayer to teach your child? Over 40 prayers for all situations, plus the Bear Family modeling the importance of prayer, make The Berestain Bears’ Book of Prayers a wonderful addition to your family’s library!

Recommended.

Audience: children ages 2-5 (and their parents)

    Wow, this sounds like the perfect book for my little one’s bookshelf! I remember reading Berenstain Bears when I was a child, but I love the new direction they have taken since their son started helping. Thank you so much for reviewing this book and I look forward to reading more of your posts!
