" Good to talk about greed and how to overcome it " said.

"In my childhood bookshelf I had a Random House book called The Berenstain Bears Get the Gimmies. It was a fun book on learning about behavior when it comes to obsession with things and the desire for more and more to an unrealistic and unhealthy level. Now, readers are blessed to have a new book retouching the topic with a Christian message in it by Mike & Jan Berenstain, Berenstain Bears and the Trouble with Things. In this new book, we are talking more about toys than candy, but the message is the same about balancing your desires and needs with things you buy. And this time around we come back to God and what he provides. Then of course, this time around we also have Honey Bear who didn't exist in the first book. Reading these two books together is fun and I love seeing the gradual changes of the illustrations, but I'm delighted with the changes and bringing forth a Christian message in something that was already full of values and virtues of moral worth.

"Turn my eyes away from worthless things." - Psalm 119:37

"Pros: The parents take responsibility for spoiling their own kids; they teach from the Bible and give a good object lesson. The book wraps up pointing out God's blessings. Papa bear carries Honey Bear at the mall.

Cons: The cubs still have too many things. No downsizing is down. No explanation is given as to why things aren't important. We don't really ever get down to what the trouble with "things" is other than that we have too many. Nothing about coveting, living beyond your means, etc.

Stickers come in this one! ")
