I received this book in exchange for my review. No other compensation given.

Berenstain Bears have also been a family favorite, with their heart-warming stories and lessons for readers young and old. 

Now in a convenient 3 stories in one collection, young readers will learn from the Berenstain Bears just how important it is to serve and love one another. Written in level one of the I Can Read standards, this bind-up of stories from the Berenstain Bears Living Lights I Can Read series is sure to please young, emergent readers as well as parents and grandparents looking for good quality reading that will help practice early reading skills as well as teach lessons about serving and caring for others. Included in this collection are the following titles: Faith Gets Us Through Have No Fear, God Is Near Piggy Bank Blessings

I received a copy of this book from the BookLook Blogger Program in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not required to give a positive review.

My Thoughts:
I requested this book for my daughter, age 6, as a practice book for a new reader. She does not yet excel in her reading skills, but is able to read a little of the book. Mostly for now... I had to read it for her.

The book consists of three separate stories with Brother and Sister bear. The first one is about a dark spooky cave and how God is with them as they go through it. It has verses incorporated throughout the story and encouragement to trust God.
The second story was about being afraid. Sister Bear is learning to trust God with her fears but she is still afraid of spooky shadows. Papa teaches her that shadows can be fun by making critter shadows on the wall. They also quote Scriptures on not being afraid and how God is watching over us.
The final story is about money. Brother Bear and Sister Bear learn to save. They learn how God wants them to use their money wisely and how saving makes your money grow. It ends with a cute surprise.

My daughter and I both enjoyed this book. I think it teaches valuable lessons for kids on trusting God and depending on Him. Mama and Papa Bear are instilling values in the cub bears as they teach them what Scripture says about the life issues they are dealing with. We look forward to reading another book in this Collection of Living Light books.
