ZonderKidz Living Lights: The Berenstain Bears Give Thanks

Discover Thanksgiving with the Berenstain Bears! The cubs are putting on a Thanksgiving show for their relatives. The whole family is getting involved, and they're even making their own costumes and props for the event! But will Sister Bear's pet turkey play the part of dinner? The Berenstain Bears Give Thanks teaches how God provided for the pilgrims and reminds children of God's many blessings. Recommended for ages 4 to 7.

The Living Lights: 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.

I actually bought these books for my 25 year old daughter. She has every Berenstain book and these are a nice edition to her collection. Nice life lessons and good values.

In this new title, the familiar Berenstain bear family delivers some hand made furniture to some friends on a farm. For payment, the family gives Papa some produce - and a fat turkey called Squanto (named, we learn, after the famous "Native Bear" who helped the Pilgrims plant their corn). Papa's mouth is already watering, imagining the turkey complimenting his Thanksgiving dinner, but Sister has "never met her Thanksgiving dinner before." She wants to keep Squanto as a pet, but Papa isn't convinced.Trying to distract Sister, Mama suggests Sister and Brother put on a Thanksgiving play for all the relatives. Soon the kids are putting on a fine Thanksgiving show offering the very basics about the Pilgrims and their desire to worship God freely, the Mayflower, and Squanto.However, when Mama calls "Dinnertime!", Sister suddenly remembers Squanto. But she's relieved when Papa points out the window at the pen he's made for the family's new pet: the turkey Squanto. A fine salmon is the center of the family's Thanksgiving dinner and when prayers of thanksgiving to God go round, Sister adds, "And I am especially thankful for my wonderful new pet, Squanto to the turkey!" "AMEN!" everyone cries.The last page of the book offers a few conversation-starting questions and project ideas about giving thanks and the Thanksgiving holiday.What I Like: My four year old loves the Berenstain bear books, and this title is no exception. It's a fun reminder of the basics of why we celebrate Thanksgiving: to remember an important part of history and to thank God for all he gives us. The Christian content in this book is, in my opinion, just right. It is neither an afterthought, nor does it get in the way of the story or become preachy. What I Dislike: The questions and projects page could be better, but the story itself is a big hit in my household.Overall Rating: Excellent.Kristina Seleshanko, Managing EditorChristian Children's Book Review
