The son of the original creators of the Berenstain Bears series continues the saga of the popular bear family with several titles that focus on religious or moral issues. In this volume, Mother Bear decides that the family should return to attending weekly church services, a tradition that fell by the wayside when the bear cubs got involved in soccer and ballet lessons. As the family heads off to church together on Sunday morning, each element of the service is briefly explained. Brother and Sister Bear attend Sunday school, where they learn about Noah’s Ark from the same teacher who taught Mama and Papa Bear when they were children. Fans of the series will feel right at home with the familiar story structure and cheery illustrations, which retain the same style as the many, many other earlier offerings about the family.
