Berenstain Bears': Please & Thank You Book #WIN

A Rup Life received product to facilitate this post. This post may contain affiliate links. *Additional disclosure at the end of this post*

I love The Berenstain Bears'!  I mean I really love them.  I own almost every book they have and we've been fans of watching them on television.  Why?  Because they are a sweet family and they teach the children (bears) good manners and behavior.  This is great because it helps me reinforce those same things with my children (human).

When I was asked to review their latest title, Please & Thank You Book, I jumped at the opportunity!  I knew it would be perfect for my little guy, not only would he enjoy it, he would learn from it!

About the book:

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 short story and well-loved characters provide toddlers a perfect introduction to valuable life lessons and routines.

About the author:
Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike carries on his parents’ love of creating Berenstain Bear stories from southeastern Pennsylvania, which looks a lot like Bear Country.

Our Thoughts:

This book is adorable!  I love that it is a board book because my little guy loves it and this way it is very durable.  Most of all I love the message of teaching good manners.  We can never have too much reinforcement for manners!  After we read this book, I made my four year old practice saying please and thank you.  I love acting out books with him for reinforcement of the lesson and just plain old fun!  I think it is awesome that Mike Berenstain is creating new books in this series.  We love the bears and can't wait to see additional books!
