My grandson was thrilled to get this book and loved it as much as all his other Berenstain Bear books. It is a fun and easy to read book that contains a positive message for children, something that is lacking in so many books today.

Berenstain Bears are always a hit in my home and with wholesome lessons nothing could be better! This is going to be a Christmas gift, but I know my children will love it. And at this price, who wouldn't love it? Once again always pleased with my purchase.

The Berenstain Bears and a Job Well Done by Jan & Mike Berenstain is part of the Living Lights series. First Mia's thoughts: I thought that the book had a good message: Do your chores before you take a break. I didn't know that the Bible talked about work, so it was kind of cool. My favorite pages was when Papa Bear caught Brother and Sister playing baseball, it was funny. Now my review. I was unaware that the Berenstain Bears offered a Christian line of books and was excited to read one. The story is true to the high quality of the original series. The family each has a chore to do for spring cleaning. For Brother, Sister, and Honey that means cleaning up the old playhouse in the backyard, but it's filled with spiders, and they are frightened and decide to just clean the exterior. When they find some baseball equipment, that derails their cleaning effort even further. I appreciated that when Papa discovered their play, he used the Bible to encourage them to work hard and stick to the job. The story is short but with a great message written in language that children will both understand and enjoy.

My kids loved this book, which I'm glad because it's one that I grew up on when I was younger! YAY! In BB and A Job Well Done, it's full of the colorful illustrations that flow wonderfully with the story and full of a powerful message from God for kids. In typical Brother, Sister, and now Honey bear fashion, they stray from what they are supposed to be doing or what they know is right, but in the end they get a lesson from the Bible about a job well done! I recommend this old family favorite of mine with 5 stars to everyone who has a Sunday school class and children! *This book was provided for review by Zondervan*

I just sat down and read this story with my kids. They all enjoyed it (ages 2,4, and 6). I was curious how Papa was going to be portrayed (because he is often an oaf and part of the conflict rather than part of the solution). In this story, all the bears have a job to do for spring cleaning. Papa and Mama both set about their tasks. Brother, Sister, and Honey start on their task, but then switch gears and start playing baseball. Papa shows a great example in the story by having compassion (hating spiders, too), but holding them accountable to doing their work. My 6 year old said that this is a great story to encourage kids to do the jobs that they don't like doing. She thought parents would like reading this book to their kids and that the kids would like it, too.

It's spring cleaning time, and everyone in the Berenstain family has a job. While Mama beats the rugs, Papa fixes a broken railing, and Brother, Sister, and Honey head off to clean their playhouse. The cubs start out with good intentions, but when they discover spiders living inside the playhouse, they are a little put off. Soon, they rediscover Brother's baseball, bat, and glove laying nearby and begin playing with them.When Papa finishes his chore, he's surprised to see the cubs playing even though the playhouse is still a mess. Papa's not pleased, but when he learns the cubs are afraid of spiders, he remembers he felt the same as a cub. He sweeps away the spiders and the cubs get back to work. Papa tells them the Bible has something to say about hard work: "It says...finish your outdoor work and get your fields ready; after that, build your house." Mama adds: "It says in the Bible that God made work for us to do and there's nothing better than to enjoy your work." The entire family agrees they will enjoy their fixed railing, the clean rugs, and a clean playhouse.The inside cover of the book includes two questions for discussion, directions for making a chore chart, and the suggestion it's good to help others with their chores.What I Like: My four year old loves the Berenstain bears, and since she needs help with her work ethic, this book was a big hit for both kid and mom.What I Dislike: I wish the Bible verses Mama and Papa mention were notated somewhere. As it is, the only attributed biblical quotation appears before the story: "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might." Eccl. 9:10. I was also a bit surprised to find the book doesn't mention possibly the strongest biblical saying about work: "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." (Col. 3:23).Overall Rating: Very Good.Kristina SeleshankoChristian Children's Book Review
