Secrets are fun, but it's much more fun to share with your friends! Read along as Brother and Sister Bear keep a secret from their friend Lizzie and cousin Fred, who follow them along trying to figure the secret out. In the end all of the bears realize it's much better to share your secrets with your friends! This book is excellent for beginning readers with its simple sentences and basic vocabulary.
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.
In the rhyming book, The Trouble with Secrets, Brother and Sister Bear are found sneaking through the woods with a secret look in their eye. Their friends, Lizzy and Fred, are following them, curious to know what the secret may be. Lizzy and Fred ask a number of animals along the way what the secret is, but all have promised not to tell or have a reason for not telling. At the end, Bear and Sister come to their secret clubhouse and are upset that Lizzy and Fred have found them, thinking someone must have told them their secret. Though mad at first, Brother and Sister then realize that it would be more fun to share their secret with their friends than to keep it to themselves.
It seems the Berestains are trying to teach quite a lot of biblical lessons in this story, but the main lesson is that secrets often make others feel left out. The cubs find that it is better to share fun things with others than to keep it to themselves. The Trouble with Secrets is an entertaining book for 3- or 4-year-olds and older. There are only a few short lines of rhyme on each page and first or second graders could easily read it for themselves. - Jennifer Joneleit, www.ChrstianBookPreviews.com
