Product Description

About the Author

Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too.  Though Stan died in 2005, and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from the family home and studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.

Having very much enjoyed reading the Berenstain Bears books to my kids, I was looking for some new ones, and found this and several others I hadn't read before. I guess what happened is partially my fault; I didn't read carefully enough. What I got, instead of the usual warm and (for the reading level) nuanced story, was some bland religious instruction. The story was one of the poorest, least interesting, most preachy Berenstain stories I've seen, mostly because it was a shallow excuse for quoting and paraphrasing come cherry-picked bible pap. Be warned: the "living lights" series makes use of these lovable bears as shills for bland religious indoctrination. Bleah. Interesting that, while you can read a few sample pages of most of the Berenstain books, the same courtesy is not extended for the "living lights" series; this smacks of dishonesty. I guess it's back to Franklin and Arthur for my family.

HASH(0xa2003198) out of 5 stars Good story, but... May 9 2014
By Chris - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 4-year-old likes this book, and as a parent, I like the main theme. Brother Bear is kind to a young kid at the park, and at the end of the book, his kindness is rewarded. There's less conflict/misbehavior in this book than many of the other Berenstain Bears books. Be advised that this book does contain a couple of Biblical references that kind of sneaked up on us. This was not a problem or a perk to us, I guess, but for some people it may be one or the other.

HASH(0xa20033e4) out of 5 stars Religious theme not disclosed July 16 2014
By mjh - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 4-year-old loves the Berenstain Bears books and we have many of them that we cycle through on a regular basis. I was disappointed to receive this one and discover that it has a religious theme and even includes bible quotations. There was nothing in the Amazon description to suggest that the tone of this book is that different from the others, and as my family is not Christian, I feel uncomfortable reading it to my children.

HASH(0xa20033a8) out of 5 stars horrible way to teach kindness Aug. 2 2013
By Brad D. Carter - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book purports to teach a lesson about kindness by showing that if you are kind to others then you will get something in return. Really? That is the reason we should be kind to others?? What a terrible moral lesson to teach anyone, especially a child.
