"The Berenstain Bears Keep the Faith" Book Review

At school, on the playground, and especially with what they see on TV, a child’s understanding of faith and God will be tested. It can be difficult to explain faith to children on a level they can understand. So Papa and Mama enlist some help from Preacher Brown in The Berenstain Bears Keep the Faith.   
Brother and Sister love science. But when their friend Ferdy Factual shares his opinions about God creating the universe, the cubs are confused. A trip to see Preacher Brown helps them understand the meaning of faith. Using the example of Daniel in the Lions’ Den, Preacher Brown helps the cubs understand that faith in God is trusting in his love.
Young readers will be able to identify with the cubs’ questions about faith and God’s love. The Berenstain Bears Keep the Faith is ideal for storytime with little ones and can be used as a resource for parents and educators who wish to address the subject of faith with young children.

About the Author, Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Since the late 80s, 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, up until her death in 2012. 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 from a studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.

My Review:
This book is being released on February 25th, 2014!  So get ready to purchase this wonderful book.   Thank-you Zondervan for sending me this book to conduct a review.   I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.  
The fact of the matter is if I do not teach my kids Biblical truths and how to discuss the truths wit people who believe the world rather then the facts and truth then the world will grab them and try to keep them.   When a Christian takes the time to dig deep in Biblical truths and science it will become very clear about how awesome our God is.  This book does a great job at starting the journey of faith and believing even when someone is trying to prove you in a different direction.  I am very thankful for the christian scientists who will argue for Biblical truths and prove it with scientific proof.  So parents don't get frightened but start early and this book is a good place to start that discussion.  I like how they teach faith based on the story of Daniel and the Lions Den!   My kids are familiar with that story so it was fun to have a story they know well in this bookk.  
Like all Berenstain Bear books my kids are glued to the story and the pictures.  This mom is happy read a wonderful story with a wonderful message of faith! Pick it up today!  This book will be available for purchase on February 25th for only $3.99.  :)

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! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
