Recently I chatted about my love for the Berenstain Bears over on my Christmas in July (Berenstain Bear Christmas Books) post – Please feel free to venture over if you'd love a little back-story…Which really, isn't that much of a back-story – But I *do* declare my love.
Today I won't keep us long with a lot of chit-chat. I love being able to just dive into an article, or have some fun on a site without feeling bogged down in a lot of unnecessary reading. I'm a lady on a mission (most of the time) and I really just need to get in and get out haha. Come on in and join me for some fun!
Today we're going to pour ourselves a tall glass of cold lemonade, sit out on the porch with a nice cool breeze and take a trip down memory lane with the Berenstain Bears. I've picked out what I feel are some of the sweetest and most fit-for-summer Berenstain Bear titles. I hope you'll enjoy the nostalgia and perhaps even pick some up for little ones of your own. Enjoy!!
