Book Review: The Berenstain Bears: God Made You Special

The Berenstain Bears God Made You Special (Berenstain Bears/Living Lights) is another great life lesson book by the Berenstain Bears.  This book gives a spiritual explanation on why some people are different than others.  Brother and Sister Bear meet Tommy, who has learning disabilities that make him different from the other bears.  Brother and Sister learn that God loves everyone, and has made everyone special.  He has a plan for each of us, and we are to learn from each other. 

My kids love Berenstain Bears, they are all conversation starting books that teach life lessons.  I’m glad to add this book to our library!

Book Review: Gloveables @ParragonBooks

Gloveables (Glovetastic Box) is a fun how to book.  Make several stuffed animals from old gloves!  This kit comes with a glove, some stuffing and 2 eyes as well as an instructional booklet on how to make 8 different glove creatures and other useful items.  Several of the creatures require 2 gloves, or 2 mittens.  The projects are rated by experience needed.  2 projects are for beginners, 2 are for intermediate and 4 are for advanced projects.

You would also require scissors, needle and thread to complete even one project, as well as more gloves/mittens, buttons and stuffing to complete more than one project.  The items that are included are for one of the advanced project, the striped dog.

This would make a very cute gift for the little sewer in your life. It’s a great way to recycle older gloves/mittens as well! I know we are always a few gloves short end of season!
