As we are winding down with our school year I've been trying to do more reading aloud to the little ones. My six year old has never truly taken to being read to so it is a work in progress for us and some days he will sit for an hour and some days it is hard to get him to sit for 10 minutes. I was recently sent this book from the Berenstain Bears Living Lights A Faith Story collection. 5 - Minute Inspirational Stories (by Stan and Jan Berenstain with Mike Berenstain.) This has been perfect for those days where Jace's little body just doesn't want to sit still for a long time.
One of the things I love about the Living Lights: A Faith Story books is that they all have themes that include the Christian faith and God. Those types of stories are so dear to me because they help reinforce the life lessons we are teaching at home and learning in church. Seeing sweet characters like Brother and Sister Bear struggle with a life lesson and turn it to a positive teaching moment adds a wonderful experience for my children. Sometimes seeing someone else (or in this case reading about) have a struggle or experience can really help mold our reaction. This book includes 12 stories that will hopefully inspire your children as much as they have mine.
The Berenstain Bears 5-Minute Read-Along Stories is the perfect companion for young readers at bedtime or anytime. With classic stories from the Berenstain Bears Living Lights series, join the Bear family and all their friends in Bear Country as they learn how to be good friends, how to play fairly, where to find courage, and much more. This oversize padded storybook is sure to become a lap time favorite for Berenstain fans, both young and old, as they read these stories in 5 minutes.
