Children’s Corner — Christmas Is Coming!

9 Nov

Christmas is just around the corner! Can you believe it? And to help your family get into the Christmas mood, Zonderkidz has two books featuring The Berenstain Bears that are perfect!

61bxlbwtwbl-_sx497_bo1204203200_In the newest Berenstain Bears Living Lights book, The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel, the cubs discover there’s more to angels than wings and flowing white robes!

It is almost Christmas and there is finally snow in Bear Country. Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear are ready for some winter fun! But when they can’t decide what kind of snowbear to build, Honey Bear’s snow angel gives the older cubs a great idea. Soon the cubs have built a Christmas snow angel. Later, as they warm up with some hot cocoa, Mama and Papa give the cubs a little lesson about some very special angels and the work they do for God.

Featuring Papa, Mama, Brother, Sister, and Honey and the rest of the Bear Country gang, kids are sure to find lots to do helping Honey Bear find the missing piece of the Bear family Nativity scene, doing crosswords and word searches with Brother and Sister, and even helping out at the Christmas Eve service at Chapel in the Woods.

 

 

My Impressions:

Whether you are looking for a family read-along book to share about God’s plans and provision or just want a fun-filled activity book to take along on a trip to grandma’s house, you are in luck with these two books. In The Berenstain Bears And The Christmas Angel, the Bear family learns about an important part of the Christmas story (and really an important part of God’s total story) — angels. Children learn of the role the angels played in bringing about God’s plan. The Christmas story is emphasized, but I loved that references to more stories about angels are included in the back of the book. Challenging for elementary readers or a good choice for family together time, this book will become a favorite for your holiday.

The Berentain Bears Christmas Fun Sticker And Activity Book is filled with word searches, coloring pages, crosswords and more! All the activities revolve around Christmas with many pointing to the real reason for the season — Jesus’ birth. This book will keep your kids occupied for hours!

So, treat your kids to an early Christmas present with The Berenstain Bears And The Christmas Angel and The Berenstain Bears Christmas Fun Sticker And Activity Book.

Recommended.

Audience: early elementary school-aged kids and their families.
