I was excited to find this coloring book in the dollar bin at my local crafts store.

I love Berenstain Bears books. I have several of them I’ve bought over the years while perusing used book sales, just waiting until V is old enough. She’s already shown a lot of interest in the book about going to the doctor and loves to look at the pictures where the bears are having their temperatures taken and their hearts listened to.

We won’t color in this book yet. I’ll hold on to it for a year or two, until she gets to know the characters a bit better. But I might make a copy of this page for now:

It’s got two of V’s favorite things: mailboxes (her favorite word to say), and mittens (a favorite clothes item to play with). She’d get a kick out of coloring this.
