Great Monday Give: Berenstain Bears

Happy belated mother's day all you moms out there! And since one of the most annoying jobs of being a mom is reading the Berenstain Bears' morality tales, I thought I'd share the joy. (Make no mistake, I love old school B Bears... but come on, these little paperbacks are maddening, no?) My son is obsessed with the B Bears, so without further ya ya, here, for your reading pleasure, is a small collection of eight original, vintage and gently-used, paperback titles from the 80s to get you started on your collection. You don't have to thank me now, just comment on this post before midnight ~ Sunday ~ May 17 and you'll be entered to win this magnificent eight.

Now, so that I can roll over and go back to sleep for 15 more minutes before my son wakes up, here is the winner of last week's give, Plenty of Fish.... momwithacause! Please send me an e-mail to webe(at)soon(dot)com ASAP, and I'll get the book out to you this week. Ta ta for now pilgrims.

My boys love Berenstain Bears and Jan Berenstein lives in our area. Her son still does author visits every year at the church where they go to preschool.

I'm not entirely sure I should enter this week -- I haven't read many of these books and from your words it looks like I may not want to! But oh well, here goes nothing.

While I agree, the Berenstain Bears can pluck your last nerve after the upteenth reading, both my nephew AND his mom love the books. How gracious of you to offer this give away.

I grew up on these books. I literally would read them under the covers when I was supposed to be in bed. I can't wait to introduce my daughter to them.
