The Berenstain Bears School Time Blessings
By Mike Berenstain / Zondervan
In The Berenstain Bears School Time Blessings by Mike Berenstain, it’s time for the new school year to begin and all three Bear cubs are excited and a little nervous too. When challenges and fears almost get the better of the cubs, Mama and Papa step in and remind Brother, Sister, and Honey that with their support, prayer, and God’s love they will each have a great year. Recommended for ages 4 to 8 years.

School Time Blessings is a children’s book for suggested ages 4-8. The Berenstain Bears are the characters in this wonderful book that teaches children about relying on God when worries and troubles arise. It uses examples of praying to God for strength and direction, as well as Scripture verses to support their messages. The story which unfolds in the Bear Country community helps children to see they always have someone to go to who will give them direction and strength in all areas of their lives.
As soon as I sat down to read School Time Blessings to my 2-year old he was immediately drawn in by the colorful and active illustrations on the cover. Instead of me reading the story to him first, he took over by reviewing all of the pages and studying the pictures. Then he proceeded to sit attentively while I read the story to him. Even though he may not catch the meanings yet, School Time Blessings has definitely caught his attention. I really liked how Scripture verses and lessons from God’s word was included in a story which can relate to all children and going back to school. I recommend School Time Blessings.
