The Berenstain Bears: God Loves You! + Family Christian $25 Giveaway!

Disclosure: I received this book and an appreciation certificate from Family Christian to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% honest and my own. 

When you're 2 and 3 years old like my kids, it's the end of the world every time you don't get something you want. Throughout the day I frequently deal with tantrums stemming from a denied snack or from one taking a toy from the other. And despite my best efforts, it can be hard to keep my cool all the time. Grace is a very sensitive soul and cries when she gets in trouble. So the inevitable question came up the other day after I put her in time out for what seemed like the hundredth time that day, "do you still love me mommy?" With tears in my eyes, I explained that I will always love her no matter what. That seemed to satisfy her and we moved on with our day.

We recently received The Berenstain Bears: God Loves You from Family Christian to review and it is the perfect book for some of our daily struggles.

In this book, Brother and Sister Bear try out for the basketball team and school play only to be given jobs different than the ones they wanted. They are upset that the adults in charge didn't give them the roles they desired and start complaining about the results. Their parents remind them that they each received important jobs despite them not being exactly what they wanted. The story then veers into a discussion about their parents loving them no matter what and in end, a rainbow reminds them that God loves us.

Grace enjoyed reading this book and told me she likes the pictures.

I've always been a huge Berenstain Bears fan because of the wholesome messages and beautiful artwork.

I also appreciate that the end of the book features questions and talking points to help parents talk through the message of the book.
