I think it's great that Zonderkids has taken the classic Berenstain Bears books and published a series of them with a spiritual emphasis. These new editions are called Living Lights.
In this one - The Gift of Courage - Brother and Sister Bear learn about courage from the account of David and Goliath as they face their own bully at school. Overall the book is good and has a good lesson to it. However, personally I wasn't too impressed with the strength of the biblical message in this particular book or the situation that they faced. While it's not the best book I've read for kids, it's not all that bad either, and at least it does have a wholesome lesson to it.
A Job Well Done is a another book in the Zonderkids Living Lights series featuring the Berenstain Bears with a spiritual emphasis.
In this book Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear learn about the importance of working hard. Mama and Papa Bear teach them with kindness and Bible verses. While it's a great little story and has biblical truth in it, the story is still a little shallow. However, like I've said with the other books in this series, it is still a decent book to read to your children.
