Mike Berenstain carries on The Berenstain Bears tradition begun by his parents with The Berenstain Bears Harvest Festival. The story opens with fun illustrations of Brother, Sister and Honey Bear, laughing, shouting and diving into piles of autumn leaves Papa Bear raked from the yard. The story's rich and colorful illustrations feature Brother, Sister and Honey Bear anticipating summers end as geese fly overhead and squirrels and chipmunks gather acorns to store for the winter. On their walk to Farmer Ben's to meet 'Preacher Brown and all their friends from Chapel in the Woods' they see God's bountiful supply of rich blessings from the harvested fields. Mama Bear is quick to remind her family there's more to what they see around them than Mother Nature at work because she, meaning Mother Nature, 'works for someone a bit higher up.' From hayrides to finding perfect pumpkins the story focus is why we need to see and appreciate our blessings and be thankful because all good things come from God. The book ends with questions to discuss and activity suggestions for ages 4-6. Thanksgiving and Christmas bring thoughts of gifts and there is no better gift to enrich and stir a child's imagination than a book, especially for children learning the joys of reading. In addition to the faith-based books 'The Berenstain Bears Harvest Festival is a fun read-to-me story for younger children. Their affordable prices make them an excellent gift choice in our 'financially troubled times. (The Midwest Book Review)
About the Author
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bears 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 his studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.

This particular series of these books has some religious talk in it but it's not too overwhelming. However, there IS some talk about God so if you don't want to read about that to your child then you might want to make some stuff up as you go or just skip this book.
The book is also quite long and although my children love it they tend to get a little distracted at times because of the length. They will probably be better about it when they are older, but since we are just starting out teaching the kids to read they tend to like the shorter books that they feel more comfortable with trying out.
