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!”
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.
