Book Sharing Monday

This week we have chosen The Berenstain Bears Go To Sunday School, by Stan and Jan Berenstain with Mike Berenstain.

When Mama Bear decides its been too long since they’ve attended church at the Chapel in the Woods, the Bear family works to get back in the habit. It isn’t long before the family remembers what a wonderful place the church is and finds that going to church is something they look forward to every week.

Hannah really enjoys all of the Berenstain Bears books, and i really like the gentle stories, and traditional values that they represent. In this story the bears rediscover the simple joys of going to church :

'The Chapel in the Woods was nestled in a pretty little glen down by the creek. On this fresh spring morning, the dogwoods were in bloom. Papa began to hum a tune. Then he started to sing, "Come to the church by the wildwood. Oh, come to the church in the vale".
