Book Review: The Berenstain Bears- The Biggest Brag


In this newest Berenstain Bears Living Lights 8x8 book, The Berenstain Bears and the Biggest Brag, Grizzly Gramps teaches Brother and Sister a valuable lesson about bragging and boasting.
When he happens to overhear the cubs bickering about who can see the most unusual cloud formations, Gramps puts a stop to the argument. He reminds them that being proud of a special talent from God is one thing, but bragging about it is foolish. “Pride goeth before a fall!”
My Review:
Thanks Zondervan for sending me this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.  
Overall the message behind this book is an important one for all people...kids and adults alike.  I like the story of the cubs grandpa.  I think this story line is easy for kids to follow and relate to... we all have moments of being prideful.  I am a little frustrated with the Proverbs 16:18 listed on the cover because it is quoted incorrectly Proverbs 16:18- Pride goes before DESTRUCTION, a haughty spirit before the fall.  I know some people think that pride and haughty spirit are one of the same but I would prefer the verse to be used correctly in this case. 
I still am a huge fan of the lessons that can be taught and learned from The Berenstain Bear books and would still recommend this book for young readers but I would also take the time to look the verse up and truly teach the meaning of pride verses haughty spirit.
