The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel

illus. by Mike Berenstain. 24p. (Berenstain Bears/Living Lights). HarperCollins/Zonderkidz. Oct. 2016. pap. $3.99. ISBN 9780310749240.
PreS—Continuing the popular series developed by his parents, Berenstain has given readers a story of children who build a snowman but who have trouble deciding on a style before settling on creating a snow angel. Mama takes the opportunity to tell them about Gabriel the Christmas Angel and the story of the Nativity. Hugs and happiness all around.
VERDICT Deliberately imitating the art of the original books, this weak entry fails to capture the trademark humor and sass of the series.
