The Berenstain Bears God Loves You Book Review

Disclosure:  I received one or more products in this post in exchange of an honest review.  All opinions are my own.

I can remember as a little girl at school reading The Berenstain Bears books with my classmates.  They always had great stories and lessons to be learned.  When I was given the chance to bring The Berenstain Bears: God Loves You! in form of a review to you, my readers, I jumped on it!

In this installment of The Berenstain Bears, Brother has tried out to be a member of the basketball team.  Sister has tried out to be in the school musical show.  While neither made the cut, they were both given jobs, Brother Bear : Team Manager and Sister Bear : Stage Manager.  As you can imagine the bears are disappointed and call on their parents to talk it out. 

As the family goes for a walk, they discover all of the ways God is around us.  Rainbows, wasps and even an evening star.  Mama and Papa explain that God loves both Brother and Sister bear, no matter their spot on the team.  They should be proud to be managers as they were given special jobs. "Special jobs for the most responsible cubs."    

While I have always loved The Berenstain Bears, I feel this book is a little wordy.  My 6 year old was ready for it to be over about 75% of the way through.   We took a small break and finished it up.  We both agree that it has a beautiful message.  I know this is a book we'll keep going back to ask she gets older.
