The Berenstain Bears: Mother’s Day Blessings

BearsA fun book for kids about the importance of mother’s day.

With Mother’s day quickly approaching, Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear want to do something special for Mama Bear. She is the best mama in all of Bear Country and they want to show her how much she means to them.  As a family, they go throughout the day realizing that it’s not getting special presents or spending a lot of money that makes the day special for mom.  As long as they are together as a family, Mama Bear feels the love from those around her.

The newest title in the Berenstain Bears Living Lights, The Berenstain Bears Mother’s Day Blessings brings the bears together to show Mama Bear how much she means to them.  Throughout the book we get to see mothers doing all sorts of things: out with family, working at the hospital or at the farm.  This is a good conversation starter for young ones to ask about the different roles moms might have.  I am a stay at home mom and read this with my five year old and we talked about the different moms working and the ones that stayed home.  It’s hard to go wrong with a Berenstain Bears book.  There is a valuable lesson in each one and they are at a level that is easy enough for even the youngest reader to enjoy and take away a positive message.  There was a lot of focus on the different roles mothers pla:, stay at home mom, doctor, farmer, police officer, etc, but there was very little focus on the day and the appreciation for moms in general.  It’s good to show women in all sorts of roles and they can be appreciated for all that they do every single day.

I was provided this book by booklook bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
