Product Description

Most of the Berenstain Bears' neighbors are like the Bear family--they keep their homes neat and clean. Except for the Bogg Brothers who live in a run-down shack. The Bear family doesn't think the Bogg Brothers are very neighborly, but one day, the Brothers help them in a surprising way, and the Bear family learns that being a good neighbor takes more than keeping a nice home. Recommended for ages 4 to 7.

The Living Lights: The Berenstain Bear series helps children learn how God wants them to live every day. When the Bear family practices going to church, praying, and being kind, plus remembering how much God loves them, their lives are much more joyful.

Publisher's Description

The Little Lights Berenstain Bear series helps children learn how God wants them to live every day. Most of the Berenstain Bears’ neighbors are like the Bear family—they keep their homes neat and clean. Except for the Bogg Brothers who live in a run-down shack. In The Berenstain Bears Love Their Neighbors children learn that being a good neighbor takes more than keeping a nice home.

Author Bio

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.

ChristianBookPreviews

In The Berenstain Bears Love Their Neighbors mother-son team, Jan and Mike Berenstain, offer a pictorial version of the good Samaritan story. In 1962 Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bears books. Today Jan is still writing them, with Mike helping with both the storylines and the artwork, and the books currently have obvious Christian themes. In this latest episode, the Berestain Bears are very happy about their lovely tree home and they are proud to live in a neighborhood of other proud home owners, ranging from Mayor Honeypot to millionaires Squire and Lady Grizzly. However, the neighbors directly adjacent to the Berenstains are Clem, Shem, and Lem Bogg, three brothers who wear patched clothes, play with pigs, drive a smoky jalopy, and live in a run-down shack. No one in the neighborhood visits them, talks to them, or wants anything to do with them.

Then the Mayor proclaims a celebration day in town, complete with games, music, rides, and competitions. The Berenstains load their car with picnic supplies, and they dress in nice clothes. However, halfway to town the water hose on their car breaks, causing the motor to overheat and stall. The Berenstains expect their nice neighbors to stop and offer them a ride, but the Mayor needs to rush by them in order to be in time to give his opening speech, and the rich Grizzlys can't stop because they need to be on time to judge the flowering arranging contest.

Just when it looks hopeless, the Bogg brothers come by and attach a rope to the BerenstainsÂ’ car and tow them to their uncle's fix-it garage. The uncle repairs the car, but won't take payment because neighbors are supposed to help each other. This shames the Berestains, so Mama invites the Bogg brothers to dinner the next week, and they become good friends.

The book offers the text, "Love your neighbor as yourself," found in Luke 10:27 as the key verse for the story. At the back of the book are suggested projects that children can engage in to be good neighbors. The drawings are brightly colored and humorous, and the story makes its point without being heavy handed. This is both fun and informative reading for youngsters ages 4 - 7 years old. – Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    My three year old nephew loves these books and spends ages just looking at the pictures. Its great to find fun books which back up Christian teaching. A big hit with my slightly older nephews also.

    This is sort of the parable of the Good Samaritan. We have quite a few Berenstain Bears books but this one became our kids favourite. There aren't too many words that they don't understand and there isn't as much writing per page (kids ages 4, 2). The pages are colourful and they seemed to understand the point of the book.
