The Berenstain Bears - God Bless the Animals - I'm Giving One Away!

If the children in your life are anything like my grandsons, they love the Berenstain Bears, they love animals and they love "lift-the-flap" books: so if you combine the three you are certain to have a book they will love! This new Berenstain Bears book does this - and tops it all off with the message, "God created all our animal friends!"

The Berenstain Bears: God Bless the Animals  
By - Jan & Mike Berenstain
Publisher - Zonderkidz
Ages - 2-5

Favorite Features -
  • return of loved Berenstain Bears characters
  • lift-the-flaps add to the fun!
  • starts with the verse, Genesis 1:25, "God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good."
  • pages are a sturdy cardstock rather than just paper so it will hold up to little ones as they lift the flaps and "read" this book!
  • encourages animal identification
Have fun reading this book with your grandchildren - and then go on a nature walk of your own to identify the animals in your neighborhood! Be sure to ask your grandchild what their favorite animal is and then lead them in thanking God for creating all their animal friends!

I'm delighted to say not only did Zonderkidz send me one book to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only)! If you would like to be included in this give-away - which will be on September 21, 2012 - please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email.
