After the long and lazy summer, it’s time for school. Brother and Sister are ready to see their friends and get busy with all of the things they enjoy about school—but are nervous about the more challenging subjects like math and history. And Honey Bear will be going to nursery school for the first time—but how will she handle not being home with Mama and Papa all day?
In this new Berenstain Bear Living Lights book, Mama and Papa Bear remind their cubs that prayer and God’s love are always there to guide them and that they will support them no matter what the challenge.
My thoughts: THE BERENSTAIN BEARS SCHOOL TIME BLESSINGS is a cute book about going back to school, separation anxiety, dealing with the most favorite and least favorite class subjects and asking for help when you need it.
It shows preschool children that school can be fun and that they will get to go home with mommy and/or daddy at the end of the day. It also shows that older children don't have all fun and games, there are confusing subjects, but with God's help (and maybe a parents, grandparents, or a friend's assistance, too) they can figure out even the toughest subjects.
If you have a favorite child starting school for the first time later this summer/fall, then you will want to pick up a copy of THE BERENSTAIN BEARS SCHOOL TIME BLESSINGS. Recommended. 4 stars.
