Book Of The Week: Berenstain Bears Old-Fashioned Christmas
We've been reading Christmas books since Halloween. Our library has a HUGE selection of Christmas books and for some reason I feel obligated to read them all every year. Which means starting early. This year, there was a special treat waiting for us. We LOVE the Berenstain Bears. We read one of their books almost every day, and the kids are constantly begging to watch the tv show.
This holiday, there is a brand new Berenstain Bears Christmas book! When we came across Berenstain Bears Old-Fashioned Christmas we were elated. Fond as we are of the old classics, we couldn't wait to open up this new treasure. And we weren't disappointed. Not only is the book filled with a classic tale of Bear Family hi-jinx, it also includes lots of Christmas tutorials - the words to a couple classic songs, instructions for making ornaments and treats for woodland animals, designs for decorating Gingerbread Bears and more!
If you're a fan of the Bear Family, or of Christmas - head right out and find yourself a copy of Old-Fashioned Christmas. We can't wait to get started on those crafts - and maybe throw in a verse of two of Twelve Days Of Christmas while we're at it.
