The Berenstain Bears and the Big Question


Are your children asking about God? The Berenstain Bears and the Big Question by Stan and Jan Berenstain handles this timeless question from a spiritual approach.

In the story, the family goes off to "The Chapel in the Woods" where the minister does not preach down to them, but points out to them, for example, the beautiful attributes of the world we live in.

On the way to and from the chapel, brother and sister ask the questions we all asked while kids and may still as adults be searching for in our own spiritual quests.

This book may help your children verbalize their own questions. And, perhaps even clarify those same thoughts for the adults in your family.

For a Berenstain Bear book, this volume is particularly thought provoking in that it does deal with religion and spirituality. I haven't found any of the other books in the series that broach this timeless subject matter.

I have to give credit to the authors for their creative setting and storyline that mimic the path of spirituality through the images of walking through the forest path to the chapel.

Personally, I like way the story ends - with the question it leaves open for family discussion, and personal reflection and meditation.

This is a great little volume for families that are looking for ways to help their kids expand their spiritual understanding!

Recommended!
