A complimentary copy of this book was received to facilitate this review. The opinion given is 100% mine and honest.
Growing up, some of my favorite books were The Berenstain Bears. My favorite was about too much Birthday though I also enjoyed Going to Grandma’s and so many more. My older two never really got into the book series, which was kind of disappointing, but now that Squeaker is here I have another opportunity to pass on a shared love for the series. Recently, we had the opportunity to review one of the newest books in the series, The Berenstain Bears Please and Thank You Book and so I’ve decided to make a new section in School with Squeaker just for book reviews.
Squeaker has quite a few books that are just hers and that haven’t been passed down from other family members. Most of them I buy secondhand on eBay in an attempt to build up her library and others we have the opportunity to review. The Berenstain Bears Please and Thank You Book is one of those books and I am so happy to add it to her collection.
Written by the son of the original Berenstain Bears books, this newest book in the series is perfect for introducing manners to the youngest of cubs.. er, children. Of course, parents can also lead by example and we’re trying to do that with Squeaker daily- please, thank you, excuse me, bless you… those have been introduced to her and while she isn’t repeating them yet, we know that eventually they’ll sink in.
I love the fun and gentle style of the Berenstain Bears books and the life lessons that are found in each book. This book is no exception. I also liked that this book is hardcover and in the perfect size for Squeaker to handle. We haven’t introduced some of the other books in the series because they’re paperback and I worry that she’ll tear them apart.
As you can see, they’re the perfect size for Squeaker to “read” and look at independently.
Overall, we really enjoyed this book and I look forward to incorporating it into Tot School when we do our mini unit on Manners.
