Juvenile Fiction (ages 4-8)
It's time for school! Brother and Sister are ready to get busy with all of the things they enjoy about school--but they are nervous about challenges like math and history class. And Honey Bear will be going to nursery school for the first time. Will the cubs be too nervous to do their very best or will they remember that prayer and God's love are always there to guide them no matter how big the challenge?
"As it says in the Bible," said Mama, "I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.'"
"That's Psalm 34:4," said Papa.The next day was the first day of school which brought about a lot of initial excitement. Eventually worry and anxiety began to creep in. After school the kids settled down to do their homework. The unease from earlier returned and Papa Bear noticed.
"I know schoolwork can be tough," he said. "But remember, you can turn to God for strength and guidance. Let's pray together."I don't think there is a Berenstain Bears book that I don't like. But this book, School Time Blessings, has to be one of my new favorites. Common fears that are contained in a new school year are addressed and Scripture is used to calm those fears! What better way can we arm our children to face what lies ahead of them?
If you've got a kiddo that's about to embark on a new school year this would be a great story to read to them. You can then discuss with them what some of their concerns for the new year may be. I look forward to reading it with my grands that are about to start a new year of learning!
