Book Blurb:

When the Bear Family goes to the Chapel in the Woods every Sunday, they are reminded of the old rhyme: “Here’s the church, here’s the steeple…” In this fun lift-the-flap book young readers go on a tour of the chapel and Sunday school in The Berenstain Bears: Here’s the Church, Here’s the Steeple.

Join the Berenstain Bear family and discover all that goes on in both the Chapel in the Woods and Sunday school with this fun and interactive lift-the-flap.

My Review

In Here’s the Church, Here’s the Steeple the bear family is going to church on Sunday Morning. The story follows the family as they travel to the chapel, go into the chapel meeting the people, sing, read their Bibles, listen to the preacher and go to their own Sunday School class. It follows brother and sister bear in their class and the fun activities they do.

The Berenstain Bears are a classic for me, I’ve always loved them and this one is no different! I like that it is a shorter story and has the flaps to lift with the ‘surprise’ under them because younger children can enjoy it more. I have read this book to my two year old niece many times and she loves it! She loves the bears, she loves lifting the flaps to see what is under them, she loves the colors and will tell me the color of each flap as she opens them. Oh and she loves the little rhyme we have all learned “Here’s the Church” and so she claims this book because of that rhyme!

I can’t say enough good things about this precious little book! The bears are precious, and a wonderful way to teach children about what church is all about. It is so important to start teaching children about church when they are very young, and this is a book you need to do that. Go out and buy a copy for your child’s library. It will be well worth it, and well worth your time to read it, spending time with your child talking about church.

I received this book free from Zondervan to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55

Jan & Mike Berenstain
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.
