Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the sons of God.
In this new Berenstain Bears 8x8 book, Blessed are the Peacemakers , Brother and Sister have a wide circle of friends at Bear Country School and they get along with pretty much everyone. But not all their friends get along with each other. Too Tall and his bullying gang, for instance, are often in conflict with Cousin Fred, Ferdy Factual, and their friends. So what happens when the cubs all need to work together on the annual school play? Brother and Sister have to decide whether they should mind their own business or get involved as peacemakers and try to calm the troubled waters.

My family and I absolutely adore them. With rich, godly messages and relevant themes, they never cease to teach us.
Blessed are the Peacemakers has been a wonderful addition to our family library. In this installment, we got to see the wisdom of the Bible being applied in a pretty hostile situation. Brother and Sister Bear were the peacekeepers when their friends got caught up in name calling, fighting, and negativity. And when the whole town seemed to jump on the bandwagon, the peacemakers took the stage and taught a valuable lesson to any and every bear around.
I cannot say enough good things about The Berenstain Bears. I encourage you to give not only this book a try, but all others in the series. You will be delighted.

Enchanting RoseColoradoAge: 25-34Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Character Building BookSeptember 5, 2014Enchanting RoseColoradoAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I grew up reading The Berenstain Bears books and now as a mother I enjoy reading these beloved books with my young son. I appreciate the good lessons presented in the books and I love how the newer publications are focused upon the Lord and have a biblical message for the kids as well as for the parents.
In Blessed are the Peacemakers Brother and Sister Bear prepare for the school's play which includes two groups that don't always see eye-to-eye. Brother and Sister Bear come between these two groups and are great examples of being peacemakers. In this book, the lesson of turning from evil and doing good, seeking peace and pursuing it is presented in a manner that all ages can understand it and be inspired to be peacemakers themselves.
My son has asked his dad and me to read this book almost every night because he enjoys it so much. This is a wonderful character building story with the beloved Berenstain Bears.

KoriAlbany, NYAge: 25-34Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5"For they will be called children of God"September 5, 2014KoriAlbany, NYAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As a child, I grew up reading Berenstain Bears books, and I think that most of us did. Now, as a parent, I look forward to sharing these timeless tales with my own children. The books in the Living Lights series, are filled with meaningful messages and relevant Biblical principles; all while in the same wholesome context as the surrounding Berenstain Bears series. In a modern society where bullying is so prevalent, Blessed are the Peacemakers provides a wonderfully illustrated lesson for children. The engaging questions at the end of the book provide additional opportunities for parents to teach their children to be peacemakers and not troublemakers. I am so thankful to add this to our at-home library and look forward to adding more books from the Living Lights series to our shelves.

Dad of DivasLansing, MIAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Wonderful Book!September 2, 2014Dad of DivasLansing, MIAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In this day of children being bullied, it is nice to see a story which brings to light the fact that we all need to find ways to help our children find peace with others, even if there are major differences to overcome.This story illustrates differences that children can encounter and also shows how a solution that involves compromise can be discovered.
I think this story could open up a discussion about resolving conflicts. Maybe the adults can assist with a step by step process for the challenging situations.
Mike Berenstain has certainly written a story his parents would be proud of. It reinforces the values his parents wrote about for years.
