The Berenstain Bears: God Bless Our Home Book Review

About God Bless this Home:
In this wonderful story Mama and Papa bear start discussing needing a bigger house since the family has outgrown the small cozy tree house.  When Mama and Papa Bear talk to Brother and Sister Bear they were very reluctant to move from the home they know best.  Will the Bear family move or come up with a different way to expand the tree house to make more room.

The Bear family finds the needs of each person in the family and then discuss how to create the room they need.  Some of the needs include: Honey Bear needs her own room and Papa Bear needs a place to protect his car from the snow.

God Bless Our Home evokes the true meaning of home, sweet home illustrates the importance of working together as a family.  Young readers will learn that a house does not have to be big, beautiful, or expensive because every home is filled with the blessings of God.

My Review:
I have said it before but I absolutely love finding books that leave my kids with a good Biblical lesson.  :)   We related very well to this story since we did just move out of our little 2 bedroom apartment into a 3 bedroom house.  One thing we did was pray over the house similar to the Bear's "God Bless this Home" sign that they place in their house.  I think it was very neat to watch the family problem solve and find a way to keep everyone happy.  :)


About the Authors: 
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear 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.  Since the late 80's, he has been very much involved as a writer and illustrator with his family's creation, the Berenstain Bears.  he continued to work with his mother, Jan, creating new books, writing and illustrating up until her death this year.  The antics and activities of Mike's three children have provided inspiration for many Berenstain Bears Books over the years.  Though Stan  and Jan passed away in 2005 and 2012, respectively, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures form their studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
