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. As they read along, little ones will be inspired to play fair, respect others, and work together—just like their favorite family of bears!
It has been awhile since I reviewed a Berenstain Bear book! I know you already know I love them! I love that they incorporate such good values!
The first book, "Play a Fair Game" did not disappoint. Well, actually the adults in it were disappointing! I could relate as a parent going to a kids sporting event to see parents acting out in such a manner that it took away the fun for the kids. I imagine it happens often. I love how the older lady who taught Sunday school to both the coaches ran onto the field to get them to settle down. Sportsmanship was a big value taught in this book. It is a book that actually should be a good reminder for adults as well!
The second story, "Respect Each Other" was another good one. I think we sometimes forget that respecting our elders is important. This story is a good reminder to not be selfish with an agenda but seek some of the elders to see what ideas they have. It is a great story with the bears!
The third story is a fun one called, "Get the Job Done." It is funny to see how spiders prevent the Bears from finishing a task... I suppose its because I could relate to it. HAHAHAH! With a spider hanging out where they were suppose to clean they move on to fun things instead of asking for help because of the spider! The Cubs learn a lesson that its okay to ask for help because the tasks need to get completed.
Thanks Zondervan for sending me that book for free in exchange for a review! Did you know that Zondervan has lots of freebies on their website? They have activity guides, and teaching help for lots of their kid stories! This is a must resource for summer time! Here is the link: https://www.zonderkidz.com/

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
