“Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.” – Proverbs 17:6
The Berenstain Bears: Bless Our Gramps & Gran is part of the Living Lights series, written by Mike Berenstain. The cubs have just returned to school for the school year, when they find themselves gloomy on a rainy afternoon. They are gloomy because they have homework. Papa tries to cheer them up mentioning Halloween, but that is two months away. Papa tells them there is a very important holiday just a few days away. He tells the cubs Grandparent’s day is the Sunday after Labor Day.
The family talks about all the things the cubs do with their grandparents, like fishing and going for walks. They talk about the things the grandparents have made for the cubs. One of those things is a Noah’s Ark play set. The cubs decide to make a very special gift for their grandparents. They write a story of Noah and his wife and grandchildren.
This is a cute story. I really like how the story shows how the family researched Noah’s family and how the cubs show the family. It shows Japheth with his wife and children, Ham with his wife and children and Shem with his wife and children. The cubs have also given Noah and his wife 16 granddaughters to go with their 16 grandsons that are mentioned in the Bible.
I also like the suggestions at the end of the book of things to do to celebrate Grandparents Day. My children loved Berenstain Bears when they were young and I look forward to sharing this book with my grandchildren. I think this is a great book, and series, for families with young children.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and BookLook Bloggers. I have written an honest review.
