The cherished Bear family is coming to a new generation of toddler and preschool readers!
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962 and the Bear family celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012! Here the charming and lovable Bear family is once again introducing children to the typical issues and questions that they face every day.
In The Berenstain Bears’ Please & Thank You Book, little readers are introduced to the importance of manners, through gentle reminders given to Brother, Sister, and Honey as they await their milk and cookies. The shorter story length and well-loved characters provide toddlers a perfect introduction to valuable life lessons and routines. Ages 2 to 5.
There are certain senses that when you encounter them as an adult, takes you right back to childhood. For me, seeing a revised Berenstain Bears’ book, the Please & Thank You Book, took me back to the days when I couldn’t wait to read the next book. I didn’t care if the library pages were crinkled and used, these were books that were funny, visual, and had great messages.
The Please & Thank You Book keeps the nostalgia alive while breathing new life into a new generation of readers. The book is a little shorter for young ones but doesn’t dilute the important messages toddlers need to learn and use—to say please, thank you, and you’re welcome. I especially liked how well the book was constructed. I think it can hold up well against a toddler with sticky hands or a penchant to be a little rough with things.
I think young and old readers will be delighted to have this book. I highly recommend.
I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the little book that could. Years ago when I walked around the real Speculator I envisioned writing out a story and handing it off to friends via my word processor. Yep, it was a long time ago. I didn’t think about publishing or becoming an author. The fear of rejection was too great.
Fast forward and God’s done a great work in my life where with great faith, I’m able to hold on to the hem of His robe and go as He leads. Entrusted is out and the masses are able to read it. Not everyone’s going to love it, and thank God, my tender heart gets that. I have one not glowing review and I survived reading it. The book isn’t for everyone.
But when unexpected praise for the book comes, it feels good. Imagine my surprise when I learned Entrusted made Elizabeth Maddrey’s list at Inspy Romance as one of her top romantic picks for 2014. I’m a voracious reader and I’ve read most of the books on her list. I love the books she listed. So for Entrusted to be included when I didn’t have to pay her for it, what an early Christmas present!
Also, Goodreads is having a Swoony Contest for favorite romantic read of 2014. I need three nominations for Entrusted to officially make the ballot. If you loved Entrusted, would you nominate, vote and spread the word for it?
I know today is a busy day but in the coming days, if you’ve read Entrusted and enjoyed it, would you add your review? It truly does drive or hurt business, depending on the review. I’d love to see God has in store for 2015 by putting Entrusted into a lot of romance reader hands.
