#ThrowbackThursday: The Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story

Easter Berenstain Bears

Better late than never!

With Easter coming up this Sunday, I thought it would be the perfect time to review a book about Easter. The Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story follows the children of the Berenstain Bears at Sunday School before Easter. While the cubs are more concerned about what candy they will get on Easter, their Sunday School teacher takes them to a play another Sunday school class is putting on so the cubs can learn the true meaning of Easter .

I think this particular Easter story would be a great introduction to the story of Easter, especially if a child is already familiar with the Berenstain Bears. Children will be able to connect with the familiar characters while hearing a story they may or may not have heard about. I also enjoyed how the book mentioned at the end that they will learn more about Easter in church on Sunday. If you go to church on Easter with your family, this could be a good book to read before going to church so your child has some background knowledge on what they are hearing. You could even point out connections between the book with what the pastor is saying during the service.

I give this book 5/5 stars.
