The Bear family are off on a picnic and the whole family is there-Brother, Sister, Honey, Mama, Papa, and even Grizzly Gramps and Gran. When the family tries to find the perfect spot for the picnic, Brother and Sister Bear, and Mama and Papa all forget their manners and are disrespectful. Learn along with these cubs to always respect your elders.
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 Berenstain Bears Show Some Respect is a great book for teaching children to be respectful, specifically to their parents. In a very down-to-earth way, the authors show how children can often speak disrespectfully to their parents and how parents often notice it, but do not know exactly how to address it.
As the Berenstain Bear family searches for a picnic spot one sunny day, Brother and Sister Bear make comments to their parents that are not extremely naughty, but not as respectful as they ought to be, leaving their parents feeling "none too pleased." For instance, when told they will be eating "willderness stew" for lunch, Brother mutters, "Yuck-o!" and when asked to wait for everyone else, Brother and Sister pay no attention and run on ahead. There are many more instances of children being disrespectful to their parents and grandparents as they all search for the best place to picnic, culminating in Grandpa Bear finally putting his foot down and speaking up about showing respect for one's elders. At that, all offenders apologize and agree to listen to and follow Grandpa's advice to the perfect picnic spot.
This is a wonderful book for children 4 years old and up, to bring about an awareness of how they need to be respectful, even in the little things they say. It is also good for parents, to make us aware of how we need to be ready to correct our children at the onset of disrespectful behavior. Jennifer Joneleit, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
