The Berenstain Bears Mother's Day Blessings by Mike Berenstain

Mother's Day falls on May 8th this year! It's a special day to show our thankfulness for all of the mothers in our lives. I can't help but feel a little giddy around this time of year. I think it's because after many struggles, I finally became a mom, myself. It's such an amazing feeling!

In honor of Mother's Day, I have been getting a peek at the latest books to celebrate moms everywhere. I love that there's even children's books out there to teach little ones about Mother's Day. One such book that we've been reading is The Berenstain Bears Mother's Day Blessings.

Mama Bear is the best mama in all of Bear Country and Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear know just what to do for her on Mother’s Day. In this newest title in the Berenstain Bears Living Lights, The Berenstain Bears Mother’s Day Blessings, join the Bear family and all of Bear Country as they spend Mother’s Day together remembering just why our mothers are so special to all of us!

Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962 and celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Berenstain Bears during 2012! Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania.

I really enjoyed how this book took the time to remind children that mothers come in all types. From homemakers to doctors to farmers, mothers can wear many hats. Throughout the story Mama Bear reminds her cubs just how special all moms are and how some may even have to work during the holiday. The important thing is that they are still being remembered by their families. In the back of the book, you'll also find a Mother's Day activity and question sheet that children can complete.

Your mother was like a vine in your vineyard planted by the water; it was fruitful and full of branches... Ezekiel 19:10 

The Berenstain Bears are a timeless classic! I would read these books as a little girl and I'm happy to have the opportunity to share them with my own child. There is always a positive message and lesson to be learned. In The Berenstain Bears Mother's Day Blessings, children will learn how to celebrate all moms and everything they do for their families.
