Wholesome, Life Lessons your Child will Love to Read from ZonderKidz - #Review #Giveaway



Books make fantastic gifts for the holidays and some can even help you teach your children life lessons such as the importance of sharing, responsibility and more.  Growing up, I loved reading the Berenstain Bears and had a lot of fun reading them to my little brother.  It became a tradition, every year my brother and I would receive the newest Berenstain Bears books and it's one that I passed down to my own son.  You can help keep the Christmas spirit alive with the help of my friends at Zondervan Publishing.  Their books are not only family friendly, wholesome and tons of fun but they're also very affordable!

Christmas Love Letters from God includes seven stories, beginning with Isaiah's prophecy and ending with the visit of the three wise men.  Your child will find his or her own letter from God, while following each story, folded into a small envelope attached to the page.  I love the fact that each letter has a space to write in the child's name and is written as if God is speaking to your little one.  This book is recommended for ages four to eight.


The Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel - $3.99
The Berenstain Bears were some of my absolute favorites growing up and I remember receiving a few of them every year for Christmas.  In the Berenstain Bears and the Christmas Angel it's almost Christmas and there is finally snow in Bear Country.  Brother, Sister and Honey Bear are ready to build a snowbear until Honey Bear's snow angel gives them a better idea.  As they warm up with hot cocoa, Mama and Papa give the cubs a lesson about some very special angels and the work they do for God.  These books are perfect to read to your little ones or for children up to about age 8 though the lessons are important for kids of all ages.
