It is a lovely, spring day in Bear Country. And it’s got Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear thinking. Mother’s Day is coming soon, and they should do something special for Mama Bear. They consult with Papa and they create the best plan.
Written and illustrated by Mike Berenstain, son of Stan and Jan Berenstain, the story and the pictures remind us of the original books. First introduced in 1962, the Berenstain Bears have helped generations of children learn the values of being a good person. From telling the truth to not eating too much junk food, the Bear Family has been a moral guide.
Mike Berenstain continues the tradition with more direct links to faith, church, and the gospel. Other titles in the new series include, “Blessed are the Peacemakers,” “All Things Bright and Beautiful,” and “God Made You Special.”
Mother’s Day Blessings, perfect for children ages 6-9, reminds children that not all kids get to spend Mother’s Day with their moms. Some moms have to work on Mother’s Day. As the Bear family drives to church, Mama Bear gently points out all the moms who are working and the different ways in which their children honor them.
Overall, this is a great little book for little readers. Even my little reader at home sat through a reading of the book. The pages are light and slick, easy for little hands to turn them.
