“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”
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.
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.

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!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
