Book Review: "The Berenstain Bears- Valentine Blessings"

Thanks Zondervan for sending me this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.   I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.  

Happy Valentines Day!  

As a mom with two young kids it is hard to even imagine the years when they have crushes and asking if they can date... oh wait just last month my 3 year old son told me he had a girl friend.   They just get younger and younger... JK! 

Anyways this book is adorable with Brother Bear finding out he has a secret admirer.  The big debate for many christian parents is what age should kids start to date.   I do believe every parent needs to determine this with their spouse as every child is different!  The book did show Brother Bear skating with his admirer but I like that fact that Sister Bear was also there... always having accountability at any age is important.  

At the end of the story the author brings back the truth- "Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister."
