Series: Berenstain Bears
Mama Bear tries to answer, but each answer leads to another question. Just then, Gramps and Gran walk by, on their way to services at the chapel in the wood, so the whole Bear family decides to go along. While at services, Brother and Sister Bear have to sit still for a long time, but as their neighbors and family take turns expressing gratitude, they begin to understand. And though Sister Bear still has a question, Papa Bear has an answer ready.
Literary legends Stan and Jan Berenstains First Time Books address many of the issues of childhood in simple, direct ways, opening the door for discussion and leaving room for parents to personalize each situation.
Larita Porter4 Stars Out Of 5August 28, 2010Larita PorterCute book, but I don't think it ever got around to really explaining who God is. It didn't answer the cub's question of who God is.
Sandra Blythe1 Stars Out Of 5November 11, 2009Sandra BlytheThis book was a disappointment as it did not once speak of Christ. The story theme was intriquing, but the ending was painfully lacking. For, you see, there was no answer given to "The Big Question".
Sharon Seyler5 Stars Out Of 5June 17, 2009Sharon SeylerGive this book to anyone who question anything and let them know that they are not the only one who have questions about God and the creation
Malissa Feragne4 Stars Out Of 5April 24, 2009Malissa FeragneI was surprised by this story because I expected them to try to answer "What's God?" and, in a way, they do, but not what I expected. It is actually a book the reinforces the idea that sometimes in life there are more questions than answers and there might be more than one answer to a given question. My son enjoyed it and it can spur some good conversation.
Christine M. Irvin4 Stars Out Of 5January 26, 2009Christine M. IrvinMama and Papa Bear attempt to answer the big question. When Sister Bear asks, Whats God? Papa Bear launches into a long, boring lecture about the universe; Mama tries to answer the question by showing Sister that God made everything, like clouds and trees and worms. But, when Sister continues to ask, What about earthquakes, floods, fires, and tornadoes? Mama is at a loss on how to respond. So, she takes her family to the chapel in the woods where they attend a Sunday morning service (although, according to the storyline, they are not accustomed to doing so). The minister, instead of delivering a sermon that particular morning, allows members of the congregation to speak. Farmer Ben says, I feel thankful to God for giving us such a beautiful land in which to live. Grizzly Gran then says, I feel thankful to God for two wonderful cubs. Mama Bear takes a turn by saying, . . . Im glad we came this morning. It helps me think things through. The story ends after the service, on the walk home, when Sister Bear asks, Did God make questions? Papa answers by saying, Yes, sister, mostly questions.This is not the usual type of Berenstain Bear book. They tend to stick to subjects that deal with family and personal values, like being honest, taking turns, and saying youre sorry. So, I was glad to see them write a book with a Christian perspective.But, having said that, I must also say I was disappointed with the way they tackled the subject. No one in the book really answers the question, Whats God? When Mama is at a loss to explain things to Sister, she takes her to church, but she doesnt even ask the minister for help. Then, at the end of the story, where Papa says God made mostly questions, the implication is, of course, that we have plenty of questions about things but no answers. There is no mention of any Biblical reference for answers to any of Sisters questions.Christian Children's Book Review
