Heartprints, by P.J. Halliman is a book that should be on every elementary teachers’ bookshelf. The story tells that when you help others, you leave heartprints.
Jan Berenstain, co-author of the Berenstain Bears book, passed away yesterday. Along with the beloved bear family, she and her husband, Stan, left heartprints on all their many readers. Along with being entertaining, the Berenstain Bear books, teach important life lessons. Through the years, their books could be found in many teachers’ lesson plans. In fact, I wrote about one of their books in my post called Golden Manners. Why not take a few moments during your journal lesson to remember Mrs. Berenstain and the legacy she leaves behind. Here is a picture prompt you can use.
