About the Author

Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bears 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 and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.

You enjoy the adventure. The pictures can tell the story and goes along with it. Your children learn along the way with it. It great for beginner readers. The pictures are quite nicely down and you can enjoy the pictures and so can young children. The book does teach about the festival and teamwork and community. It is a sweet book and you do see Brother and Sister's little sister Honey.

Such a fun book, a look back in time, really. A harvest festival attended by the Bear Family, with fun activities. Hayrides, an apple picking contest, picking pumpkins in the pumpkin patch, all fun, wrapped up with a yummy Harvest feast. Brother and Sister Bear had a fun time and at the back of the book, they have included activities and questions for you to have fun too. Beautifully illustrated, this story is a story that will touch your heart as you reminisce about fun harvest festivals you have attended. 4.5 stars from this reviewer.

Around here the weather has started to have a crispness to it and the leaves are just beginning to hint at the colors to come. With these changes come the many fall festivals that we love to attend as a family. Our family isn't the only one that loves a good harvest festival. The residents of Bear Country are eagerly anticipating the first ever Chapel in the Woods Harvest Festival at Farmer Ben's farm. We meet up with the Berenstain Bear family as Mama and Papa are readying their yard for a winter's rest. Papa mentions the Harvest Festival and the whole family decides to attend. Along the way it is mentioned that "mother nature puts on her best clothes and dishes up her finest food." At first this little phrase made me cringe. But in the next pages the following exchange takes place between the Bear family: "Would you say mother nature is putting on a good show for us?" said Brother, kicking up a drift of leaves. "Well," said Mama, pointing to the heavens, "you know mother nature works for someone a bit higher up." "Yes," agreed Papa. "And harvest time is about much more than just enjoying the season. It is a time to give thanks to God for all his blessings--for the food that grows in his good, rich earth and for the wonders of nature that he has created." (pg. 10) I appreciated the follow-up that pointed out the true Creator. I'm still not thrilled with the "mother nature" reference but not enough to pass on the book. Once the Bear family arrives at Farmer Ben's they participate in apple picking and pumpkin picking and then a hay ride. At the end of the day there is a feast for the entire community where Preacher Brown gives a wonderful prayer about celebrating the Festival of Harvest with the firstfruits of the crops that have been sown. This newest Berenstain Bears' book is a good one to add to your family library for fall reading. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

The Berenstain Bears' Harvest Festival is a wonderful children's book to teach children about fall! My kids had a blast reading this book and it sure excited them for the upcoming fall season! We're in Arizona so just reading about cooler weather and all the fun things we get to do in the fall is something we welcome with open arms. I love that The Berenstain Bears' Harvest Festival teaches kids to thank God for wonderful weather, food, friends and so much more. My kids aged three to seven all loved this book. The illustrations are beautiful and keep kids attention throughout the book. This is the perfect book to get kids excited for fall and teach them to thank God for all the wonderful things He gives us! Disclosure: I received product(s) for free, in exchange for my honest review. I only recommend products I've used personally, and believe will be good fit for consumers.

I thought this was a fun story for kids to read or for parents to read to their kids. I liked the harvest theme. This book also teaches kids how to be thankful for everything. I like how these stores are not only entertaining but have a meaning to them. They pictures are also very colorful and really draw your eye to the page.

The Book The young bears, Brother, Sister, and Honey, are excited about Fall and all of the wonderful things that come with the season. Mama and Papa are excited too. As the Bear family makes their way to Farmer and Mrs. Ben’s farm, they are reminded that even Mother Nature answers to a higher calling, God. And since God creates everything, including the seasons, the young bears realize that this season is also a season of thankfulness. My Thoughts As with any Berenstain Bears’ book there is a deeper meaning to the story. And since Mike Berenstain has created the newest books in this incredibly memorable series, I am so pleased to read them to my children. The original stories written by his father and mother were always excellent books, but I am so tickled that the Living Lights™ series makes sure to incorporate God and a beautiful lesson into each book. It makes it so pleasing to have these books on my bookshelf because I know that they are based on great Biblical lessons. All wrapped up neat and tidy in a beautiful and colorful display, this book is sure to add depth and meaning to your children’s life. This book, like all the other Berenstain Bears’ books, is a huge hit with my kids and I am blessed to be able to read wholesome and entertaining stories that I know my kids enjoy. I received a free copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest opinion and review.

(I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.) The Berenstain Bears Harvest Festival follows the Bear family as they enjoy a beautiful fall day then go over to Farmer Bens for a harvest festival. This book sees the Bear family enjoying many autumn activities such as apple and pumpkin picking, a hay ride, jumping in leaves, and even a meal with friends. This book also touches some on thanking God for all His blessings. What I liked: I, like my daughter, really enjoy the Berenstain Bear books, both the old ones and the new ones. I loved that we were able to read a book with familiar characters. I love how the illustrations are so much like the original series. What I didnt like: There really wasnt a plot to this book. The Bear family was just doing fall activities without any real plot or lesson. My daughter could tell that too. She was a bit confused and thought that I didnt read all the book. I also really didnt like the couple references to mother nature. Im not that opposed to that phrase but I find it can be confusing for small children who are trying to learn about God. Overall, I would say to skip this book. There are much better books in the Berestain Bears series, both the original and the new Living Lights series.
