It has been awhile since I reviewed a Berenstain Bear book! I know you already know I love them! I love that they incorporate such good values!
The first book, "Play a Fair Game" did not disappoint. Well, actually the adults in it were disappointing! I could relate as a parent going to a kids sporting event to see parents acting out in such a manner that it took away the fun for the kids. I imagine it happens often. I love how the older lady who taught Sunday school to both the coaches ran onto the field to get them to settle down. Sportsmanship was a big value taught in this book. It is a book that actually should be a good reminder for adults as well!
The second story, "Respect Each Other" was another good one. I think we sometimes forget that respecting our elders is important. This story is a good reminder to not be selfish with an agenda but seek some of the elders to see what ideas they have. It is a great story with the bears!
The third story is a fun one called, "Get the Job Done." It is funny to see how spiders prevent the Bears from finishing a task... I suppose its because I could relate to it. HAHAHAH! With a spider hanging out where they were suppose to clean they move on to fun things instead of asking for help because of the spider! The Cubs learn a lesson that its okay to ask for help because the tasks need to get completed.
