Taste the Rainbow

On our 14 year anniversary we were able to see this beautiful rainbow... so we had a little extra fun!

Book Review: "Very Beary Stories" 3 books in 1

I Can Read: The Berenstain Bears Very Beary Stories 9780310768425; Hardcover; On Sale Date 05/26/2020 Featuring three favorite stories from the Berenstain Bears Living Lights library,  Very Beary Virtues  is the perfect collection of stories for children learning to sound out words and sentences.
