The Berenstain Bears Caring and Sharing Treasury is a wonderful collection of five beloved Berenstain Bears stories all in one, large, hardcover book. It includes the following stories:
- Jobs Around Town
- Get Involved
- Love Their Neighbors
- The Biggest Brag
- Gossip Gang
Each book in this treasury begins by sharing a Bible verse that is relevant to the story. What I like about this collection is that there are stories that would be a draw to young boys such as Jobs Around Town and Get Involved. The ones that my daughter was excited about were The Biggest Brag and the Gossip Gang, because it featured mostly girl bears in the stories. The other story, Love Their Neighbors, was my favorite and is sure to be a hit with any child. It is basically a modern day version of the story of The Good Samaritan from the Bible. I'll never forget the moment when my daughter put the two and two together and realized the connection. From that point on she was all ears and listened intently! I loved the Christian content in these stories. God was referenced to several times and different Bible verses were loosely quoted for the purpose of teaching the young bears a lesson. This is a wonderful series for the young reader who isn't quite ready for chapter books. Overall, I enjoyed these stories and look forward to more!
