“The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel” was sent to me by Zonderkidz - a division of Zondervan Publishing – free of charge, in exchange for my honest and not coerced review.
“Christmas Angel” was written and illustrated by Mike Berenstain, the son of the original writers, Stan and Jan Berenstain. I still think it is SO awesome that my grandchildren can now hear and read the series that I read as a little girl, and that I read to my little boys! Thank you, Mike, for carrying on the tradition.
In this story, the bear cubs built a snow angel (a traditional snowman, just wouldn’t do) They added a flowy robe, wings, a halo, and a harp. It was really good! Well, as they were drinking the hot cocoa Momma had made them, and admiring their work, Papa told them about Gabriel – the Christmas angel that announced the Savior’s birth. On the last page, there are also references of other angels found in the Bible...like, Michael.
I definitely recommend this book…and all of the Berenstain books…to young readers, and those who read to them.
