As many of you know, the Berenstain Bears are a franchise that is now being authored by the second generation of the Berenstain family, Mike Berenstain, who inherited the Bear Family from his author/illustrator parents, Stan and Jan.
Since taking over the Berenstain Bears series several years ago, Mike has ensured that the Berenstain Bears have explored a variety of new adventures and learned many new life lessons through books released by several publishers, most notably Harper Collins (who released their traditional, secular stories) and Zondervan/Zonderkidz (publishers of the Berenstain Bears Bible-based stories).
For those who haven’t followed the Bear Family in recent years… the Berenstain Bears have had a religious awakening and aren’t just learning life lessons like telling “The Truth” and keeping their “Messy Room” tidy, the franchise now includes books like “Do Not Fear, God is Near” and “Thank God for Good Health.”
This year – 2015 – showcases a variety of book titles that represent both the traditional Berenstain Bears adventures as well as their more religious lessons. Here are the books that have come out… or will be coming out soon!
