Taylor (my three year old) has recently become extremely interested in what my childhood was like. I have been hearing questions like “Mommy, what toys did you play with when you were a little girl? Did you watch Doc McStuffins when you were little? What clothes did you wear when you were a little girl?”. I am not sure that I have met a more inquisitive child. I often ask myself, “Where did she come from?”. When I see something from my childhood, like a Franklin toy from Chick-Fil-A’s kid’s meals, a game, or television show, I try to point it out to my girls. They are instantly captivated by it and want to know more about it or experience it.
The announcement of a new book from The Berenstain Bears’ book collection greatly excited me. Here was another chance to share a part of my childhood with my kiddos. I could not wait to get my hands on a copy and share it with my girls. Only feelings of happiness and pure nostalgia came to me when I opened the package of this book.
Berentain Bears’ Books authors Stan and Jan Berenstain have passed away. Stan in 2005 and Jan in 2012. Their son and author, Mike Berenstein, has decided to carry on the legacy and has introduced a new book, The Berenstain Bears’ Please & Thank You Book to this classic line. Thank you Mike!
Available on the book’s official website on March 1.
Recommended for Ages: 1 to 5 years old
The illustrations of the book have the same classic look as what we are familiar with. The book is a board book, so you don’t have to worry about this classic book being destroyed by little hands.
It came at the perfect time because my girls have been a little whiny and have not been using their best manners when asking me or my husband for things like coloring books, snacks, shows to watch on tv, etc. The book allowed us to have a discussion about how they should talk to me and ask for things, always beginning their request with “Mom, may I please…” and allowed me to remind them about the importance of saying “Thank you” when someone does something for them.
While reading the story to them, the girls were all ears and extremely eager to get to the next page. They experienced what I felt many years ago when I first discovered The Berenstain Bears’ Books at an elementary school book fair.
