Looking for a read aloud story rooted in Scripture that teaches the virtues of trust and patience while instilling a love of reading in children? Look no further than the one-and-only Berenstain Bears family and their newest book in the Living Lights series—The Berenstain Bears Patience, Please.
Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear jump at the chance to have their own gardens. Buying seeds, using shovels, and making signs for the vegetables to come are all very exciting. They even imagine all the flowers and veggies that will fill their plots of land. But when the growing part takes longer than expected, Brother and Sister Bear get frustrated and start to complain.
Will the cubs throw down their shovels and give up? Or can Mama and Papa convince the cubs that waiting and watering are part of having a healthy garden, and being patient is one of life’s most important virtues?

About the Author
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bears books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.
