“The Berenstain Bears Bless Our Pets” was sent to me by Zonderkidz – a division of Zondervan Publishing – in exchange for my honest review.
“The Berenstain Bears Bless Our Pets” was written and illustrated by Mike Berenstain…the son of the late Stan and Jan Berenstain, who introduced the Berenstain Bears series in 1962. It is a children’s picture book.
In this story Preacher Brown decided to have a blessing for all the pets in his church. The cubs were so excited to bring their cat, dog, bird and fish to the service. Other children brought many different kinds of pets. Of course, no one thought of the mayhem that would happen when you put dogs, cats, birds, mice, etc. together in one place …and happen it did! As always, there are verses and prayers to remember and beautiful pictures. And, at the end of this particular book, Mike included a word search puzzle.
As always, I highly recommend this and all of the Berenstain books to young readers and those who read to them.
