2.0 out of 5 stars Did you know the Bears found Jesus?, June 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Berenstain Bears Learn to Share (App)
The app follows the book exactly, from what I can tell. They really forced the rhyming and have phrases which wouldn't make any sense to a child like "I get my kicks" (so that we'd have a rhyme against pick-up-sticks).

In case you haven't read any new Berenstain Bears books lately, they've signed a deal with Zonderkidz (a division of Zondervan). Now the books talk about praying, God, and Jesus. That's right- you can also find God Loves You, Say Their Prayers, and Go to Sunday School. Be sure to get the iPhone app, hardcover book, and Kindle edition also!

It doesn't look like any of the Berenstain Bear apps on the market aren't this Christian flavor. If you're part of the 25% of the US population which doesn't have Jesus in their heart, skip these apps. At least there's 3 modes in the Oceanhouse Media framework- I can just make up my own words. I should have gone with Dr. Seuess- if Zonderkidz gets ahold of his work, I'm calling a Jihad!

If you go to Oceanhouse Media's website they separate the older Berenstain Bears books from the newer "Living Lights" series. So, if you are wanting one of the secular ones you could look on there to see what titles they have.

It also has it in the description on Amazon - from the first paragraph: "The Berenstain Bears Learn to Share is an interactive children's book for Android tablets and smartphones, and part of the Living Lights series, helping children learn how God wants them to live every day." BUT it would be nice if they included it the title.
