Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Little Lights Berenstain Bear series helps children learn how God wants them to live every day. Coach Papa Bear wants his team to play fair. But the other coach just wants to win. The Berenstain Bears Play Fair shows that players and coaches should act in a way that pleases God. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

It's a nice teaching tool.

I'm not sure how I would have changed it to make it better, but I think the issue should have been resolved by someone other than Missus Ursula.

My four year old loves this story; he requests it all the time.

I am a huge fan of the Berenstain Bears series of books. My kids grew up reading the picture books and then graduated to the chapter books. My youngest son, who is now 14, still occasionally reads a Berenstain Bears book. So, I was eager to review a couple of the latest books in the picture book series.

As you might expect, The Berenstain Bears Play a Good Game, written and illustrated by Jan and Mike Berenstain, is a story about playing a game. In this case, the game is soccer, as both Brother and Sister Bear are avid soccer players. They are both on the same team, the Rockets, which is coached by Papa Bear. He doesn't know much about soccer but he knows how to cheer his team on. And, their motto is the old familiar one: "It's not whether you win or lose that counts, but how you play the game." But one team in the league, the Steamrollers, has the opposite motto. Their coach tells them, "It isn't how you play the game that counts, but whether you win or lose!"

When the two teams meet up, of course there is trouble. The Steamrollers "roll" right over the Rockets. For the most part, the Steamrollers play fair, but the Rockets are just no match for them. When the score is 5-0 in favor of the Steamrollers, things start to heat up. Brother and Sister Bear set up a sneaky play that scores them their first goal of the game. Then the biggest player on the opposing team, Too-Tall, fouls Sister Bear, knocking her flat on her back. She's okay, but Papa Bear is concerned about his daughter so Papa starts yelling at the coach of the opposing team. The ref tries to keep them apart, but he's helpless to control the situation when everyone starts spilling out of the stands and onto the field.

Ever since the son took over authoring these books, they have really gone downhill in quality. The new method of illustrating looks rough and unfinished and the writing is not the same caliber style as when the parents wrote it. With that being said, these new 'Little Lights' books are the first ones I've liked in the series in almost a decade. I am an adult collector of the First Time Book series, which I consider 'Little Lights' a part of, and I bought 3 of the 'Little Lights' books to sample and really have enjoyed them and plan on buying more. I'm looking forward to the Thanksgivng one due to be released soon and hope they continue with the series. I also hope they consider bringing back the Big Chapter books. I think they were better than the First Time Books and they explore the other minor characters more like Too-Tall and Queenie.

In this book, Brother Bear, Sister Bear, and their friends, relatives, and families learn how to be a good sport and to play fair. This book is a very good way to teaches children no matter how old they are to be a good sport and to play fair.

My daughter loves the Berenstain bears. I was so happy to see a Christian version released. The story has a great moral. It's a nice teaching tool. I plan on buying all of them.
