The Berenstain Bears have been around since I was a little girl and I always love a new title from them! You can count on them for great life lessons and morals. My kids love holidays and so do I so we were really looking forward to reading Easter Sunday together. Now that I have two readers in the house, I let them tackle this book and read it outloud to me for a change!
The Berenstain Bears have some Easter traditions similar to ours like dressing in special Easter clothes. While we have always done this I don’t think I’ve ever actually talked to my kids about why. They just know they dress up on Easter. This immediately sparked a conversation about how Easter Sunday is special and different from any other Sunday. We wear bright, colorful clothes in celebration of the resurrection. At six and seven my older two are really starting to get this.
After church and hearing the Easter story the bears have an Easter egg hunt. This was another great opportunity to talk about secular Easter traditions, where they come from and how they tie in, or don’t, to Christian traditions. I like that they said it’s ok to have the Easter bunny and chocolate and other fun things but that it really doesn’t come from anything Biblical.
The Berenstain Bears Easter Sunday is a great book with our favorite characters to remind kids of the true meaning of Easter and while it’s ok to have fun traditions too, that isn’t what Easter is really all about.

About the Authors
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, and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from the family home and studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.
