The Berenstain Bears Piggy Bank Blessings Review
The Berenstain Bears Piggy Bank Blessings is a short 21 page soft book that is perfect for young readers to read in one sitting. It is the perfect size to fulfill the recommended 20 minutes of daily reading for young kids or read two this size for older kids.
The story is all about Mama Bear teaching her cubs about saving their money. It is backed up with Biblical principles that I love. Although Mama Bear gives her cubs special gifts during a recent shopping trip, the cubs didn’t know when to stop asking. They wanted everything. This was a great time for Mama Bear to teach them about saving. Isn’t that how it is in real life too? Kids learn most by example and in real life, always talk with your kids, especially when answering their questions. Kids learn a lot more when you explain your reasoning instead of just saying “No, because I said” all the time…
In the story, the cubs have a choice, either listen to their mom and the Bible or spend all their money on things they don’t need. What do you think they will decide?

The Berenstain Bears Good Deed Scouts Help Their Neighbors Review
The Berenstain Bears Good Deed Scouts Help Their Neighbors is hard cover book filled with 96 pages of inspiring stories for your young reader. This is a great collection of stories that won’t overwhelm your young reader since they are broken up into bite size sections to read, it is like getting 5 books in one!
This collection of stories is all about helping and loving your neighbors. I like the theme of scouts, making it perfect for both boy and girl
cubs kids. This would make a great gift for kids joining cub or girl scouts too.
