Editorial Reviews

"A children's storybook features 45 foundational stories from the Christian Bible. A young polar bear is having a sleepover with several friends of different species. After a fun day, Mama Bear calls the youngsters in for storytime. Explaining that the Bible "is the story God gave us," she proceeds to tell stories from the Old and New Testaments. She begins with the Creation story in Genesis, moves on through Exodus, and concludes with Paul's missionary work. The anthropomorphic little animals are an effective feature of the book, as they frequently comment on the stories and question Mama Bear. Why didn't God simply put a fence around the tree with the forbidden fruit? wonders Little Otter, giving Mama Bear the opportunity to teach the little ones about free will and choosing to love and obey God. Little Cub wants to know how Noah was able to find land with the Ark, and Mama Bear explains about having faith that God will steer you correctly.

The questions and the wonderment the little animals express well reflect the reactions and inquiries many children are likely to have. The illustrations are warm and colorful throughout, with interesting details to catch readers' attention. Little Cub and his friends are particularly well drawn, combining both realistic animal details with human expressions. Characters in the Bible stories are olive-skinned humans. A likely choice for those seeking a children's Christian Bible." (Religion. 4-6) Kirkus Reviews
