I remember so many Berenstain Bears books from my own childhood, and it is so nice that they are still being produced and that I can continue to share them with my children. This year we get to enjoy The Berenstain Bears Get Ready for Christmas. This is a very sweet book to read with your young children as you prepare your home for Christmas, especially if you are setting up a nativity scene.

As the Bear family is decorating for Christmas, they find that the pieces to their nativity scene are missing (can you relate!). The search is on as they go throughout the house and – in wonderful lift-the-flap style the children in your life will love – collect the pieces they need to celebrate Jesus’s coming.

I plan on reading this book with my little ones before tearing into our gifts on Christmas morning. It helps to focus on the greatest Gift of Christmas, and His humble beginnings in a manger far away. Enjoy!
