Book Rebiew- "God Bless our Country"





About the Book:
The Bear family and their Bear Country neighbors celebrate the Fourth of July with a big parade. But not before the Bear cubs get a lesson about the blessings of freedom for their country. Features 12 full-color stickers.

“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”
Matthew 5:14
In the newest Berenstain Bear Living Lights 8x8 title, the glorious fourth has arrived and the Bear family is busy decorating with flags and bunting. Brother, Sister and Honey are anticipating the big parade and all the fireworks but aren’t really thinking about the true meaning of the day.
But Mama and Papa make sure the cubs know just how much Bear Country is blessed with a quick lesson about the first Fourth of July.
Features 12 full-color stickers.

My Review:
This book is perfect to share with your little ones near the Fourth of July, when studying about our country, or even explaining the importance of praying four our leaders and country.  
I enjoy how easy the author can share how our nation came to be but also keep a christian perspective.   Our nation is in need of more prayer so my focus with my kids was to help them to learn to pray for our leaders and nation, but also what patriotic means.
The book has the bear cubs decorating their bikes for a fourth of July parade... I know we have lived in places that have kids decorate their bikes for a parade.   I know we are now going to search it out when it gets closer to July! 
My kids enjoyed this patriotic story and are very excited for summer to come to celebrate the Fourth of July.   
At the end of this story Papa Bear and Mama Bear give thanks to God, I end with a big Thank you to God for allowing me to blog but also Zondervan for sending me this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid to review this and all opinions are 100% mine.

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
