Now early readers can enjoy an interactive Berenstain Bear book to discover nature! The Berenstain Bears: God Bless the Animals, the newest addition to the Berenstain Bears Living Lights line, is a lift-the-flap book for children ages 2-5 about God’s many woodland creatures and the habitats he’s given them.
When Papa Bear takes the Bear family on a nature walk, they meet their animal neighbors in the woodlands near the tree house. Features of the Bear Country landscape like bushes, stumps, rocks, and lily pads are flaps that lift to reveala skunk nestled in a hollow stump, an owl and its chicks in a hollow tree, a duck and ducklings behind a patch of cattails, and many other animals in their natural homes.
The whole family will enjoy The Berenstain Bears: God Bless the Animals-parents and grandparents for its teaching of Christian values and reading skills, and children for its fun lift-the-flap feature and colorful illustrations of God’s creation.

Here is a great natural walk for the whole family in a fun interactive lift-the-flap book. (Can you guess what’s coming next type reading). One flap per page is just enough and I think the building anticipation is just right for my preschooler and also interests my toddler. Would recommend it.

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.
