The Berenstain Bears 5-Minute Read-Along Stories is the perfect companion for young readers at bedtime or anytime. With classic stories from the Berenstain Bears Living Lights series, join the Bear family and all their friends in Bear Country as they learn how to be good friends, how to play fairly, where to find courage, and much more. This oversize padded storybook is sure to become a lap time favorite for Berenstain fans, both young and old, as they read these stories in 5 minutes.

Stories included are:

The Berenstain Bears and the Forgiving Tree, The Berenstain Bears God Loves You, The Berenstain Bears Say Their Prayers, The Berenstain Bears Love Their Neighbors, The Berenstain Bears’ Faithful Friends, The Berenstain Bears’ Biggest Brag, The Berenstain Bears and the Gift of Courage, The Berenstain Bears Blessed are the Peacemakers, The Berenstain Bears Get Involved, The Berenstain Bears’ Gossip Gang, The Berenstain Bears God Bless Our Home, and The Berenstain Bears Here’s the Church, Here’s the Steeple.


My Impressions:

Reading is very important to a child’s development and helps a child understand themselves and the world around them. I love when children’s stories are entertaining and teach valuable life lessons, including God’s love and purposes. In The Berenstain Bears 5-Minute Inspirational Stories, you and your child can share in the joy of reading with stories that speak right to the heart of a child’s life, especially their place in God’s world. There are 12 colorfully illustrated stories featuring the beloved Bear family. The text is challenging for developing readers and works well with parent-child read-along times. Children will have fun practicing their skills, and parents can use the stories as a springboard for more discussion. The book bills itself as a 5-minute read along, but it will probably take kids longer if they are doing the reading themselves. Depending on the age and skill level of your child, you can use this book to fit your needs and goals.

I really liked The Berenstain Bears 5-Minute Inspirational Stories and recommend it!
