Great book with a reminder that Jesus says to share


Wonderful book. Graphics are identical to the print book, but not really any animation. Does have sound effects added and some interactivity by touching the objects and it will show and say the word so helps with beginner reading. Narration is a great reader.
Some mentioned horrible Christian themed. Completely untrue. It mentions prayer maybe 3 times in the 45 pages and mentions Jesus twice I think telling something he says. Then a short scripture at the end that talks about sharing. Maybe the the other reviewer is against sharing. Either way it is a great book and some Christian elements are not going to harm your child only could help. Giving a one star just because of the mention of prayer seems childish. Maybe we will pray for you.

New Bears


The older versions did not contain scriptures, no awkward,did you know the Bible says, and more. The old versions also taught more without saying more! I'm a believer, but the bears were great and better without the verses. less awkward. While it doesn't hurt the child to have it in there couldn't there just be an optional verse at the end of the book? Simplicity ruled Bear Country it's just plain different. I'll be giving the older versions out. We learned good stuff from them.

Great message.


I'm not sure what is confusing or misleading about this book. Scripture is in the description and it's being published in part by one of the mega Christian publishing companies. It's fascinating people want to whine about morality. It's a safe, encouraging book for kids. I find it refreshing rather than disappointing.
