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.

The book has great moral lessons for children.

Has a religious tone and doesn't really seem to even get the point across.

Some reviewers have criticized the Judeo-Christian underpinning of this book. I have no problem with that aspect of it. The problem for me is that the message is rather too subtle and abstract. The lack of respect presented in this book is when Brother and Sister take mild issue with their parents' choice of a picnic spot and Mama and Papa Bear take mild issue with Gramps and Gran's choice of a picnic spot. More power to the families for whom this, incredibly, constitutes disrespect, but that's not the case in mine, where we struggle with opposition, rudeness, and defiance on a much more overt basis every day. If you have a child who struggles with these things and who may or may not have a clinical diagnosis, don't waste your money on this book, because it's not meant for you.

This book is just okay. I really like the characters in the story but there are parts that lack the proper wording for a young child. It also doesn't teach the correct lesson in my opinion. Children need to learn about how to respect others but not played out in the way this story teaches. I really like the characters but the content needs some work.

My granddaughter loved this little book so much she kept reading it over and over again. She is a new reader and had no difficulty with the words, giggled often, and wanted more eBooks like this.

I finally just read this book to my 2 and 5 year old after having it sit on the bookshelf for a month. I thought the message was great and that it teaches children (and adults) to show result towards each other and to their elders using biblical principles. I remember reading a review from someone on here that said something to the effects of "even down right biblical" and "preachy". Well, I guess if you don't believe in God, then this book isn't for you. But our family does and we love inviting God and His Word into our home, especially when teaching our children. The real Berenstains that wrote this series of books are Christians and many of their books principles are based on their beliefs. We love the series and I highly recommend!

I'm sorry to say that the Bear family just hasn't been the same since Stan passed away. I ordered this book because this is a lesson my 8 year old needs to be reminded of lately, and the Bear books often motivate him to make better choices (I'm going to watch less TV, eat less junk food, make a chore list!) They teach a moral through a fun story, but are also very direct and clear in their message. This story fails to do that.
Summary:
The bear family, with Gran and Gramps, are looking for the perfect picnic spot.

It gives examples of disrespect ranging from mild (interupting, not listening) to really mild ( practically stating an opinion/disagreeing.)

Example: Mama Bear suggests they go to the nice spot by the pond where she and papa had their first date. Brother says "That was an awful long time ago. It's full of mosquitos now. Let's find a better spot." And it IS full of mosquitos. Still, Mama is "none too pleased" with Brother Bears act of disrespect.

Gramps calls them out on their disrespect. They are sorry. The end.

So-

1. Many of the examples of "disrespect" weren't relevant to my family or didn't really exemplify disrespectful behavior, at least not the kind i'm trying to address. (Above.) And the story never really explained WHY these behaviors were disrespectful, so I had to fill in with a lot of discussion. Like in the example above, I explained that Brother could have noted that there were a lot of mosquitos and then ASKED if they could keep looking.

2. Because of these stated opinions being used as illustrations of disrespect, this book almost gives a feeling of "children should be seen and not heard.

Critical message rarely addressed by media, though fairly short and lower paper quality compared to the older books that I'm used to.

I was honestly disappointed by this book. It doesn't really fit with what I would consider "disrespectful"...Brother, Sister, Papa are just stating opinions. I also don't like the fact that everyone has to submit to Gramps...kinda makes Papa out to be a kid himself when- in my opinion- the kids should be submitting to their parents first. Whatever, this is not the place for a discussion like this. I personally did not like it and would not have purchased it had I known what it was about (I bought it on my kindle).

It was a good story but it could have been better because it just didn't quite get the message across.
