4 Stars Out Of 5
Will capture the attention of young readers
July 27, 2013
Written in catchy rhyme, "Faithful Cubs" contains three stories that are sure to capture the attention of your young readers (age 4-8). Although these stories are not part of the popular "I Can Read!" format, my girls (in grades 1 and 2) had no problem reading through all three of these stories. They enjoyed the lively and colorful pictures as they were reacquainted with Brother and Sister bear as they learned important lessons on life. Without even realizing it, my children were learning lessons about sharing, working hard and not giving up, and enjoying God's creation and not spending all summer cooped up in front of the television! The stories are well-written and easy to follow, and though they do lack some of the humour that other Berenstain Bears stories contain, they still held my children's attention. "Faithful Cubs" also offers excellent value for money spent, as three different stories are included in this hardback book, making it a book with something for everyone. My children have already been wanting to read this book over and over, whether together or on their own, and it has earned a permanent place on our book shelves.
Families looking for a book that will entertain little minds while imparting important truths will want to plan on adding "Faithful Cubs" to their collection of children's stories. I, and my children, give this book a solid rating and award it 4 out of 5 stars.
