“The Berenstain Bears’ Harvest Festival” was sent to me by Zonderkids, a division of Zondervan Publishing, free of charge, in exchange for my honest review.
“The Berenstain Bears’ Harvest Festival” is a children’s fiction book, written by Mike Berenstain. He also drew the adorable pictures – patterned after the creations of his parents, Stan and Jan Berenstain. The first Berenstain Bear book was introduced in 1962. I think it is so cool that a series I read as a child, and read to my children, is being continued into my grandchildren’s generation.
This book was about autumn. As it talked about the leaves and the animals, picking apples and pumpkins, and going on a hayride, it didn’t forget to show that autumn is also a time to thank God for His bountiful blessings. I also like how, at the end of his books, Mike includes a few questions to talk about and a couple of activities. In this one, it’s to plant a garden, and to visit a farmers’ market.
I’d recommend this book to young readers and to those who read to them.
