Series: Berenstain Bears
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Though Stan died in 2005, and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from their studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.
Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents, Stan and Jan, working together to write and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too.
Pop Bear gets Christmas started well by catching a gigantic salmon for the family to eat and by pulling out all of the bulbs and lights to decorate a tree. But then he gets the crazy idea that he and the children should climb a tall mountain and cut down their own tree this year, rather than buy one from the local merchant. The threesome come across three absolutely perfect trees, but each time they discover that the trees are the homes of wildlife animals -- a skunk, a chipmunk, crows, an eagle, even tiny snow birds. The children convince Pop that he cannot destroy the homes of these creatures of God.
Unfortunately, Pop has led the children so far up the mountain; they are in danger of never making it back home in time to buy a tree before Christmas is gone. Thinking quickly, Pop takes his trusty axe and hews three sets of snow skis from the stump of a tree. He and the children put them on and race down the snowy mountain, but not in time. All the Christmas trees have been sold by now! Dejectedly, they trudge home, only to discover that the animals whose tree homes they had spared have come down the mountain and used their ability to fly and climb to take the Berenstain Bears' holiday ornaments outside. The animals have turned the house into one gigantic, glowing Christmas tree, making it the best Christmas ever for everyone.
The colorful artwork, humorous rhyming storytelling, and strong moral ending to this tale make it a storybook that is entertaining and ethically enlightening. Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
