Series: Berenstain Bears
In The Berenstain Bears Bless Our Gramps and Gran, the newest title in The Berenstain Bears Living Lights series, Mama, Papa, and the cubs decide its high time they honor Grizzly Gramps and Gran.
Its almost Grandparents Day and the Bear family has never celebrated this special day before. So working as a team, the cubs, with a little help from Mama and Papa, come up with a fun and creative way to show Gramps and Gran just how much they are loved and appreciated.
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bears books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.
Rachel5 Stars Out Of 5Great childhood memory relivedOctober 1, 2017RachelQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I have many fond memories of my great grandma reading me Berenstain Bears books when I was growing up. I have always been fascinated by the stories but when I received this book to review I decided to dig a little deeper. I read through the book and it filled my heart with happy memories. I decided to learn more about Stan and Jan Berenstain. I was fascinated by the fact that Stan Berenstain was blind in one eye, yet created these humor filled cartoons. By the world's standard he could not see, but yet he saw more than some people who have perfect sight. Some people can see and some people have visions. I think those with visions see some things so much clearer. This particular book is part of the Living Lights series. I love the layout and the colors and the story, great book.

Written by: Mike Berenstain
I love the old books from The Berenstain Bears, and then there are some newer ones that I don't care for as much, that I feel just are not written as well. I was happy to have the chance to read and review The Berenstain Bears Bless Our Gramps & Gran.
This book, I feel, was written more like the old ones. It tells the story of the bears as they are looking ahead to Grandparents' Day.
The pictures in this book are just what you expect from The Berenstain Bears. Full of detail.
Who This Book is For:
This is a great book for ages two through ten or so.
What I liked:
The pictures are as fun as all books from The Berenstain Bears.
The story is cute and fun.
This book focuses on a holiday that is not mentioned often.
What I didn't like:
There is nothing in particular that I didn't like in this book.
Overall, I like this book.
I give The Berenstain Bears Bless Our Gramps & Gran 5 out of 5 stars.

TimIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Bless Our Gramps and GranAugust 2, 2017TimIllinoisAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Here we have another Berenstain Bears book for review. This one is a short little edition with a cute story line. The book tells a story of a rainy day activity to celebrate Grandparents Day, using the story of Noah and the flood to illustrate Biblical truth with a family friendly story.
The story is short, you can read it in a couple of minutes, which makes it perfect for young listeners. The illustrations are colorful and fun and typical of the Berenstain Bears.
There is really no new ground here, it is just a fun book to have for the kids. Our grandkids love to be read to, so this one will make it into the rotation and probably will be a big hit.
I received a copy of this book for free from Booklook Bloggers in exchange for an hones review. A positive review was not required.
BookwormforKids5 Stars Out Of 5Perfect for Grandparents DayJuly 25, 2017BookwormforKidsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This isn't only a tale with the familiar Berenstain flair but also a gentle creative shove to glide into Grandparents Day (which is the first Sunday after Labor Day and recognized as a National Holiday since 1978).
The young bears are bored. It's raining outside--so much so that they've pulled out their Noah's arc set--but they've already played with that and don't know what to do next. Mama and Papa remind them that Grandparents Day is nearing and, perhaps, they could use the time to come up with a way to celebrate for the first time.
As in all the Berenstain Bear books, family wholesomeness radiates off of the pages. This is a loving, kind family but by no means perfect either. The young bears idea to play Noah's arc with the rain is cute while remaining subtle, and the bears' reaction to the suggestion of doing homework is something every kid will completely understand. It's a natural scene, which could take part in any household. The author does a great job of weaving in the meaning of Grandparents Day without ever letting it slide into a text book description. The bears' thoughts of their Grandparents inspire the reader to recognize what their own grandparents to for them, insuring warm fuzzy feelings. By the end, the desire to do something for ones own grandparents is gently planted in the mind and is sure to lead young readers to want to do something for their own gramps and gran.
The illustrations are as natural as the tale. They are bright without being too bold and draw in with movement on every page. There are enough details to keep kids coming back to look again without spilling into the danger of being over-whelming.
This is a great book to hand to kids ages 4 and up, which is sure to kindle those grandkid emotions. And this is especially a good book to read about one or two weeks before Grandparents Day. I loved getting a free copy from Booklook for Bloggers, wanted to leave my honest thoughts and will be giving some to my nieces and nephews. so cute!
Lyndsey5 Stars Out Of 5LOVE the Berenstain Bears!July 20, 2017LyndseyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Not only do I love the Bears, but I'm so excited there is a book featuring grandparents! My grandparents are a HUGE part of my life and invested so much in my life through their love, support, prayers and wisdom. I'm so excited to read this book over and over with my kids and it will definitely be a treasured addition to our library. I also loved the practical ideas to honoring grandparents in the back of the book. Grandparents Day is usually celebrated the first week of September and this is a great book to share with your kids before then. *I was given a review copy in exchange for my honest review.
