The Berenstain Bears God Bless Our Country, By Mike Berenstain
I first have to say that I love the Berenstain Bears so I was very excited to receive a free book from BookLook Bloggers for my honest review. I remember reading these books as a kid and I could not wait to read it to my kids. My elementary and middle age kids all loved this book.
In the book the bears are preparing for a 4th of July parade. While preparing for the parade the parents explain to the cubs how the 4th of July is like a birthday for our country. I love that it expresses thankfulness to God for giving us our country of freedom.
The illustrations are great as usual. The book is very patriotic and would be perfect for giving a little background on the 4th of July that young elementary age children can understand. The message is simple and at the end of the book it gives some questions and even some ideas for activities for the kids for 4th of July. I found it great that even my older children loved reading the book. My toddler was slightly interested but I don't think it caught his attention. He did love that the book came with stickers and that kept him occupied. I would recommend this book especially if you want your kids to read a little bit about history in a fun way and understand how blessed we are from God to have a country of freedom.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
