I have gotten rid of most "don't talk to strangers" books because they are mostly fear inducing. I want my children to use common sense, and this version emphasises that. Sister (gotta love the names :-) ) fears everyone when first told that not all strangers are trustworthy. Mama comes to the rescue with some much needed common sense and moderation. The book concludes with a plausible example of Brother maybe trusting a stranger too much.
A good starting point for working with young, very trusting children, on appropriate interpersonal interactions, and may help prevent the child from fearing even the grocery store clerk.

This is a good book. My 5 year old son enjoyed the story, and the lessons that I wanted to convey about strangers (what is a stranger, stranger rules, etc.) were covered very well. The story shows how one can become too afraid as well as how one can be lured into leaving with a stranger. Children learn to be careful without being paranoid. Children also learn that "telling" is not the same as being a "tattletell".
We have enjoyed all 8 books that we purchased from this collection.

Book was informative, had step by step "rules" for the cubs to follow, and had a story line for the reader. The analogy of the "apple" looking fine on the outside but could be a rotten one on the inside,as well as the implications from the newspaper headlines was too advanced and confusing for my 3 year old. These comparisons would work best with 5+ age group. I would recommend this book but for slightly older children.

...about the danger of strangers. I have read this book to all three of my children, and they have definitely learned the value of caution. A nice feature is that the book shows, in a non-scary, friendly way, how scary the subject of strangers can be to children, but how talking it over can help allay those fears. The book also shows how a child's excitement over a stranger showing a common interest or offering goodies to the child can override the child's basic caution. I highly recommend this book for the collection of anyone who wishes to keep their child(ren) safe.

I used this book about 6 years ago to help teach my child about "stranger danger". This book helps to teach about strangers without scaring children away from everyone and everything. All the Berenstain Books are definately worth reading to youngsters - they all teach a lesson or two in a very positive, easy to understand way that is suitable for a wide age range. Most of them also make excellent bedtime stories (I didn't think this one was good for bedtime) and often help children to open up about a subject and discuss what they are thinking or feeling. They are also very good First Books for the cild to read as they get older. I highly recommend this and all of the Berenstain Bears books. My child outgrew them and had given them away, so I am now purchasing a few to give as a Christmas present to a co-workers 3 year old who I think will enjoy them as much as my child did.

I have 2 children - a girl (2) who loves everyone and a boy (4) who is scared of everyone. How do I teach her to be cautious without having to loose her charm? How do I teach him to be friendly without being cautious, too? This book addresses it all. Sister Bear has one personality, Brother has the other. In the end, brother is tempted by a stranger and Sister steps in. It addresses stranger danger better than any other source I have seen. I really feel this is a must-have book for every parent and child.

This book is an amazing book. It first starts with Sister Bear talking to everyone she saw in her path. She told Papa Bear she talks to strangers. Papa said it's not a good idea. The lesson is, don't talk to strangers and don't go anywhere with strangers. Because of a mistake, Brother Bear talks to a stranger about his radio controlled airplane. But Sister Bear stopped him. My favorite part of this book is the back page, "Brother And Sister's Rules For Cubs." Kids should get this book because it's a very good lesson!
