Series: Berenstain Bears
Brother and Sister Bear both like to be the bestthe best soccer player, the best student, the best artist. But when Gramps overhears the cubs bickering about who can see the most unusual cloud formations he puts a stop to the arguing. Being proud of a special talent from God is one thing, but bragging about it is foolish.
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bears 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 his studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.
JulieNebraskaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Another Great Berenstain Bear BookJanuary 26, 2015JulieNebraskaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A new Berenstain Bear book came out in 2014; and thanks to Booklook Bloggers, I got a complimentary review copy. I love a good Berestain Bear book, and my kids do too. The theme of The Berenstain Bears and the Biggest Brag by Mike Berenstain is something my two oldest kids need to learn. The book cover shows it perfectly. They tend to compete over the silliest things and love to try to one up each other. This book shows kids the problems with always trying to be one better than someone else and tells them, Where there is strife, there is pride. Thats something good for all of us to learn.
Booklover105 Stars Out Of 5Good examples of bragging leads to good conversation with kidsJanuary 21, 2015Booklover10Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Our family likes to read the Berenstain Bears. It reminds me of the days when I was there age and looked forward to reading them myself. They have also been wonderful books to help teach different character traits in a fun way.
The Biggest Brag was a good read for me and my kids. They could relate to Brother and Sister because they, too, have found themselves bragging and competing against each other at even a young age. We had already been talking about not bragging, so it was a wonderful way to continue our conversation.
After they heard the story, they could tell very quickly that Brother and Sister weren't being nice to each other. We used the questions at the end of the book to further our conversation about bragging and how we are to love.
The questions are very helpful to lead your child into a meaningful conversation about those character qualities that most parents feel are important for them to learn. It helps that this is your classic Berenstain Bears book that draws kids in and makes it easy for them to remember the lessons.
I received this book free from Zondervan Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Good Advise HereJanuary 16, 2015MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The delightful Berenstain Bears are back and as wonderful as ever thanks to Stan and Jan Berentain, and the creators son Mike. He is sharing the wonderful lessons that he grew up with, and we are all the lucky recipients.
My boys loved and could relate to the competition between the siblings Brother and Sister Bear. My guys started comparing what they had done, and loved what the characters were doing. They were intrigued by the cloud watching and admitted that they loved doing that too, but not the extreme that these two Bears went to, although they loved the imagination shown.
Im so pleased to find this Christian book with good lessons that the boys can relate to, and really enjoy. Good lessons and good examples were learned in reading this beautifully illustrated book. I loved at the back of the book there are Activities and Questions that can be talked about and include the whole family.
I received this book through BookLook Bloggers, and was not required to give a positive review
CreazianVAAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Berenstain Bears and BraggingDecember 30, 2014CreazianVAAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4A new addition to the bestselling Berenstain Bears' Living Lights series that teaches simple Christian truths to children.
In this newest Berenstain Bears Living Lights book, The Berenstain Bears and the Biggest Brag, Grizzly Gramps teaches Brother and Sister a valuable lesson about bragging and boasting. When he happens to overhear the cubs bickering about who can spot the most unusual cloud formations, Gramps puts a stop to the argument. He reminds them that being proud of a special talent from God is one thing, but bragging about a talent is foolish.
I thought this book was well written for children. It's easy to relate and easy to understand for kids. There are even questions for parents and children to discuss at the end of the book to tie in the Bible verse introduced on the cover of the book.

Pride goeth before a fall!
This story is perfect for early readers, including my granddaughter -- and its a good lesson for children who get caught up in a "bragging contest" when they start bragging about what they can do and try to outdo others in their bragging.
I love how the story doesnt make the reading too simple, yet is easy for a new reader. The pictures are delightful and entertaining, while the message is always a good one to learn. When my own children were growing up, they read the stories by Stan and Jan Berenstain while growing up now my grandchildren are reading the stories by their son, Mike.
The biblical aspect is one I really appreciate, too!
Even better now activities and questions are included on the last page!
