Through the story of David and Goliath, Brother and Sister Bear learn that they can stand up to bullies and be as brave as David, because God is with them just as he was with David. Written and illustrated by renowned authors Jan and Mike Berenstain, Berenstain Bears and the Gift of Courage extends the popular Berenstain Bear series with this easy to read and understand story with a strong Christian message for young readers and their families.
Berenstain Bears are a special memory to me from my own childhood. The Berenstain Bears and the Gift of Courage is a fun little story about bringing the lessons from David and Goliath to everyday life in dealing with bullies and difficult situations. I always love these, such a treasure for our shelves. I hope we can have a great collection of Berenstain Bears books for my daughter to read over and over again.

About the Authors:
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Though Stan died in 2005, Jan and Mike continue to create the delightful Bear adventures from their family home in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.
