The Berenstain Bears: School Time Blessings by Mike Berenstain

Mike Berenstain has published another book in the Berenstain Bears' Living Lights series called School Time Blessings. These books are for kids ages 4-8 years old.

From the Back Cover:
It's time for school! Brother and Sister are ready to get busy with all of the things they enjoy about school--but they are nervous about challenges like math and history class. And Honey Bear will be going to nursery school for the first time.  Will the cubs be too nervous to do their very best or will they remember that prayer and God's love are always there to guide them to matter how big the challenge?

My Review:
Every kid is excited a a little nervous when venturing back to school that first week in the fall.  Some things are the same, but a new teacher, and harder classes can be time of insecurity for kids.  Mike addresses these issues in this book as Brother and Sister head back to school.  Even Honey Bear is heading to school this year, and for her it is the first time being away from Mama and Papa.  When the parents notice that the cubs are not truly excited about the new school year, they talk with their kids and help them express what they are feeling.  I appreciated the fact that the parents didn't just talk with their kids, but also showed the cubs some Scripture that they could focus on to remind them that God is always with them. I thought that the book provided a great way to talk with kids about their fears and to point them to Jesus.

***I received this book free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
