Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMDecember 7, 2016FitzysmomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love a good children's book that entertains with an engaging story but also has teaching elements for further discussion. That's exactly what you get with The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel.
Snow has finally come to Bear Country and like all kids the Bear cubs are anxious to get out there and experience it for themselves. Once outside they decide they want to build a snow bear. But after some discussion the idea morphs into a snow angel. Soon they head inside to warm up and enjoy some hot cocoa.
As they are admiring their creation through the window Mama Bear takes the opportunity to tell her cubs about the appearance of angels at the birth of Christ. That Mama Bear is a smart one!
This book would be perfect this Christmas season for showing your kids that we can have fun and keep things Christ centered. Not only does the story itself reference several instances of angels appearing but there is also a section on the back cover that lists six additional appearances of angels in the Bible.
I recommend this book to anyone that is looking to keep your celebrations Christ centered this year. It is a short read but sure to delight the whole family with the discussions that will come from the topic.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
Alysa SawyerAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas AngelOctober 21, 2016Alysa SawyerAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book written and illustrated by Mike Berenstain is about the Berenstain Bear cubs playing in the snow and making a snow angel. Mama Bear comments that the snow angel could be named Gabriel. The cubs respond that they did not know that angels had names. Mama Bear explains that Gabriel was a messenger who gave the news to Mary that she would have a baby named Jesus. She goes on to talk about the angels that visited the shepherds and the angel that spoke to the Wise Men in a dream. The book references scripture about angels and the inner back cover lists other angel Bible stories and their references unrelated to the birth of Christ.
I have always loved the Berenstain Bear books and still have several of them from childhood! Mike Berenstain is the son of Stan & Jan Berenstain and has carried on the legacy of the beloved characters. When his father Stan died, Mike started helping his mother with the series. Later after his mother Jan died, Mike took over full authorship and created a Christian themed series using the same characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the Berenstain Bears. This book is a great way to introduce scripture about angels to younger children.

Frosty5 Stars Out Of 5Great introduction to angelsOctober 10, 2016FrostyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Mike Berenstain has created a great book that helps teach children about angels and their purpose in The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel. Brother and Sister Bear are so excited about the snow that's fallen overnight. They take little sister, Honey, out to build their first snowman of the season. I enjoyed the variety of snow people they thought about making. Honey inspires them on their final. This leads to Mama and Papa telling the bear cubs about the angels in the Christmas story. I like how Mike intertwined a fun story with truth about angels in the Bible. The book also has further references in the back for other angel scriptures. As usual the Berenstain Bears do not disappoint. I received this book for free from Zonderkidz.
DonnasBookshelfTennesseeAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Berenstain Bears and the Christmas AngelOctober 10, 2016DonnasBookshelfTennesseeAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My family was thrilled to discover a new Christmas story to add to the other stories we have. Living Lights Berenstain Bear books are a way of introducing and encouraging good character qualities. And in todays world, good character qualities are unfortunately not the norm.
As a Christian family, we have a special appreciation for Christian faith-based stories in the Living Lights series.
The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel shares how God sent an angel to Mary, to give her the wonderful news that she had been chosen to be the mother of Jesus! He also sent angels to spread the good news to the shepherd in the fields -- and to Joseph to warn him to flee to Egypt with Mary and Baby Jesus.
The story imparts some great news . . . that angels are sent to us to share good news, warn us of bad things coming, and for guidance and protection.
It will be a great addition to your family library. Be sure to pick up a copy soon for your family . . . and get a few extra copies to give as Christmas gifts.
This book will most definitely be a blessing to children (and parents) everywhere!
