Books under the Tree? Part 1

Anyone who knows me well knows that I love to gift books, specifically to my children, but others as well. In light of that, I will be presenting a quick series of last-minute book ideas for gift-giving.

First up is a sweet little lift-the-flap book by those favorite authors Jan and Mike Berenstain. I had no idea that they authored faith-based stories starring the Berenstain Bears! What a nice little surprise for your 2-5 year old.

The bear family is decorating for Christmas and they have to find all of the pieces of the nativity, which are scattered throughout the house (under flaps). It appears that Mama Bear has set up a fun scavenger hunt for her cubs. :)

If you visit the link above you can search for the store near you that carries this book, which retails for $6.99.

My little bear cub (The youngest, at 4 years old) enjoys snuggling on the couch and reading this book with anyone who will take the few minutes to do so. I liked that there were clues in the text that helped him choose which flaps to open at the appropriate time (Either brother or sister typically found the next item). That made it much more fun to read, vs some of the random flap-opening books that we own.

I hope that this may have been helpful to you in your last-minute gift-giving~ :)
