Editorial Reviews

Review

“A classic in children’s literature for nearly half a century, The Berenstain Bears are back with four all-new books that teach children how God wants them to live. These picture books focus on doing the right thing, saying prayers and going to Sunday school-all through the silly antics and delightful humor of the bear family.” (Focus on the Family Clubhouse Jr)

“Preschoolers will love exploring classic Bear Country with the familiar Berenstain Bears in their newly released faith-based series” (Children’s Ministry)

“Michael’s enthusiasm about his work is contagious. He is not only committed to creating sound, edifying instructional literature for young children, but he is energized by his continuing opportunity to challenge children and their parents to think seriously about significant life issues and practices such as giving thanks, loving near-and-far neighbors, applying the rules of good sportsmanship and nurturing relationships with each other and with God.” (Homecoming)

“Kids ages 4 to 7 will love these.” (Homelife)

From the Back Cover

The Berenstain Bear series helps children learn how God wants them to live every day. When the Bear family practices going to church, praying, and being kind, plus remembering how much God loves them, their lives are much more joyful. In The Berenstain Bears Say Their Prayers. Brother Bear discovers that God answers every prayer---in his own way and time. Children will learn, along with Brother Bear, that praying isn't just for bedtime.

Right in the middle of reading this book to my daughter (5) she asked what the book was about. The moral of the story was too brief and hard to understand. My daughter thought the book was about baseball. I like their older books which are more fun, less mundane and more to the point.

My son and I have an established bed time ritual and that includes a bath, a book or two and a prayer.

Before reading this lovely book, my 3 year old son would say the standard, "Now I lay me down to sleep...." prayer. But seeing the Berenstain Bears prayer for specific things, it opened his mind to include EVERYTHING.:)

A good book to teach an important lesson!

Compared to other Berenstain bears books, the new ones by Mike Berenstain have a lot of words and can get a little boring and mundane. They also don't start with the clever little rhyme like his parents did. They still teach the lesson but it's a little bit over kill and if you are reading these at bedtime (like myself) suddenly your reading time is quite a bit longer, so instead of 2 books you may only have time for 1.

Got this for my two boys, ages 3 and 1. They love books and this one is no exception. Got it in the hopes of making it easier for us to say our night prayers before bed. Although that still hasn't caught on smoothly yet- the book is still awesome!

I was completely under the impression that this book would teach children the importance of prayer, contain praise of prayer, list a prayer for children to memorize or something, etc. Nope, that's not what we got when my son's book entitled The Berenstain Bears Say Their Prayers. Throughout a good portion of the book, Mama and Papa Bear spend time complaining of the cubs' prayers being too long and that they are too tired to stay awake and listen anymore on those particular nights. In fact, Mama and Papa Bear literally fall asleep one night as the children recite their lengthy, but very thoughtful prayers. I didn't find that funny or amusing that Mama and Papa Bear couldn't show enough respect to allow their children to do the right thing that they had indeed themselves taught them to do.
It's clear that this book thinks prayer is a great idea and that prayer is powerful. It's just displayed in a lousy way to little children. As if Mama and Papa Bear weren't bad enough, towards the end of the story, a prayer incident comes into play with Brother Bear and Cousin Freddy. Cousin Freddy is trying to teach brother that sometimes the answer to a prayer is "no," sometimes it's "yes," and still sometimes it's "not right now." This whole "lesson learning" opportunity essentially gets over-looked because the whole story should have been written based on Brother Bear and Cousin Freddy's discussion about their life lesson, instead of just throwing some details about the story on a couple of pages. Instead, the largest portion of this book consisted of the grownups whining. No one likes a whiner, especially when it comes to one in classics like the Berenstain Bears.

We love these books! It's so nice to have cute stories that help reinforce the beauty and power of prayer. We purchased many of the books that have a God-loving message and we so appreciate how darling the stories are.

Great book on teaching kids the importance of prayer.
It also helps them learn good sportsmanship as well.
It was just the right length for my 4 year old.

My kids will ask to read "prayer bears" and say the words in the story along with me. This is a good twist on the classic Berenstain bears books.
