My kids LOVE the Berenstain Bears. They like the books and the TV show. They always seem to be having some type of problem that Papa Bear tries to "fix" and ends up bumbling! I like the Berenstain Bears because they always come to some soft, gentle and logic resolution to their problem and the bears learned something about character and the golden rule.
Since the death of Stan and Jan Berenstain I was curious if these new books coming out would have a different feel. And while I think they are a bit different...in fact, Papa doesn't even play a role in this book, the message is still good. We still learn about character, the Golden Rule, and a scripture from Proverbs helps the cubs better understand God's word.
Unfortunately, the book seems much shorter than the originals (like Too Much TV or Too Much Junk Food) and a little less developed with less of a story line and it gets to the point very quickly. Still, we learn that it is not good to be prideful or boastful and Gramps steps in to give the cubs a lesson on bragging and boasting.
The pictures are wonderful, just as good as the originals, and this book is a great addition to our character training library.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review
