This book written and illustrated by Mike Berenstain is about the Berenstain Bear cubs playing in the snow and making a snow angel. Mama Bear comments that the snow angel could be named Gabriel. The cubs respond that they did not know that angels had names. Mama Bear explains that Gabriel was a messenger who gave the news to Mary that she would have a baby named Jesus. She goes on to talk about the angels that visited the shepherds and the angel that spoke to the Wise Men in a dream. The book references scripture about angels and the inner back cover lists other angel Bible stories and their references unrelated to the birth of Christ.
I have always loved the Berenstain Bear books and still have several of them from childhood! Mike Berenstain is the son of Stan & Jan Berenstain and has carried on the legacy of the beloved characters. When his father Stan died, Mike started helping his mother with the series. Later after his mother Jan died, Mike took over full authorship and created a Christian themed series using the same characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the Berenstain Bears. This book is a great way to introduce scripture about angels to younger children.
