Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Though Stan died in 2005, and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from the family home and studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.

I have absolutely loved this Storybook Bible and this has by far has been my son's favorite! It's the only one our family has read where he was fully interested throughout each chapter! There were plenty of times to point out different emotions, animals, and counting items/people/animals! Every page is bright and colorful with wonderful drawings! However there is one huge complaint that I have and that is the story concerning Jesus' arrest and death. I felt that they did not accurately portray the real story of how Jesus got arrested concerning Judas. I know that they were trying to tell the story in a way that children can understand, but I felt they made inferences that could cause a child to misinterpret this part of the Gospel story. For some people this might not be an issue, but saying that Judas betrayed Jesus because he was angry and that Pilate hung Jesus because he didn't want him as king does not agree with me. Now would I recommend this Storybook Bible? Yes, but with a hint of caution. I have found the authors to be Biblically accurate except what I explained in the paragraph above and otherwise feel they do a great job in explaining the Gospel! I give The Berenstain Bears Storybook Bible a 4 out of 5 stars!
This is the best story book to teach the bible. My daughter wants to hear and read along with every story constantly. Thank you for creating an excellent biblical recreation with some of my favorites characters from my youth. I enjoy Papa bear reading as well.
