The Berenstain Bears and the Big Question
A Berenstain Bears book might be the last place one would look to find a depiction of a Quaker meeting for worship, but evidently a relative of the Berenstains was a Friend, and this book the result of visiting Quaker meeting more than once. Early in the book, Sister asks, "What is God?" to answer her question, Papa and Mama Bear take the family to the Chapel in the Woods, and on this particular morning, the minister doesn't deliver a sermon, but invites the congregants to wait in silence and, if they feel led, to deliver a message. a number of the members of the Bear family offer messages, and the book ends with Sister Bear asking, "Did God make questions?" Ages 3-7.
