This is a sponsored post facilitated by Book Bears, however, all opinions are mine.
We all know that reading is important for children, especially during the ages of 2-5. This is when they develop speech and communication. The imagination can also take us to amazing places. My favorite book as a child was The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe and of course my favorite character was Lucy. My kids also have favorites and they’re always at their fingertips. But there is also room for new books!
I leave books lying around everywhere. I never want my kids to get bored. In my house you will find children’s books on my bedside table, in their room, in our living room, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, under their bed, in their drawers, on their dresser and sometimes spread all over the floor! I would rather have books on the floor than toys. I would also rather purchase books for children as gifts than toys. In fact, for the holidays my son’s school does a book exchange instead of gifts.
That is why gifting a book by Book Bears is a great option for Grandparents and friends for Birthdays, Holidays, or “just because.” Book Bears is a new children’s book subscription service that is geared towards two age groups: 2-5 and 5-8. It offers a hand picked picture book by a children’s book editor for your little bear every month.
Our subscription included the “Little Lost Cowboy,” by Simon Puttock which was perfect for my son. He could identify with the story line and has been to Arizona many times so he recognized the desert right away. We had so much fun reading about the “Little Lost Cowboy” and the friends he made while looking for his home. The illustrations were amazing too.
Each month, your little bear will receive a package including a picture book, a Share the Love of Stories card, which has a reading tip for parents as well as reading questions and an activity that relates to the monthly book selection.
As it states on their site, “it also includes a monthly reading certificate/coloring page that helps your little bear keep track of the book he or she is reading each month (great for building confidence, learning the months of the year, and helping to develop fine motor skills).” As you can see, my son had fun tracing the letters of and coloring it!
And what about children who don’t have as much opportunity to have books at their fingertips?
For each new subscriber, Book Bears will donate a picture book to a child in need.
