The Berenstain Bears~Mother's Day Blessings
Mother's Day is quickly approaching. It is such a special day to celebrate being a mother, a daughter, a grandmother, an aunt, a sister, and a friend. Children love to spoil their mom's on this special day. The newest book by Mike Berenstain, Mother's Day Blessings (a Berenstain Bears book) is so sweet.
Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear all want to do something extra special for Mama Bear on Mother's Day. They go to Papa Bear for some ideas and he has the perfect surprise for her. They will take her to Sunday Brunch at Bear Country Inn. The children want to include their grandmother as well.
During the Sunday drive to church they notice all of the mother's who have to work on Mother's Day. Some of them they didn't even know were mother's. Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear all start thinking about how special the day really is for each of the mother's and that those mother's are very special to their children.
During the church service the Pastor gives bible verses about mother's and gives a word about being a mom. After church is over the children get to tell their mom and grandma what their Mother's Day surprise is and they are all very excited.
This is a very delightful story for children to learn about the many different mom's out there. It also makes children more aware of the mother's who have to work on Mother's Day and to pay special attention to them. Some of them don't get a day off and we should be thankful for the jobs they do.
