Chapter One

In Bear Country, there are many jobs to be done. Mama takes care of our tree house and family. Papa does chores and makes fine furniture to sell. But there are other jobs too. And if you pick the right job, work will be fun.

Let's take a trip around Bear Country and see what we might be when we grow up.

Some jobs can be exciting. We could fight fires like Firebear Bob.

Or we could be policebears like Officer Marguerite. She tells us when to safely cross the road. If we don't obey, she blows her whistle ...

Meet the Author

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, Jan and Mike continue to create the delightful Bear adventures from their family home in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.

The Berenstain Bears and the Gift of Courage by Jan and Mike Berenstain is another entry in the Living Lights series putting a little faith in the classic series. First Mia's review: The book was about being brave and standing up to bullies. I think I'm a little like Sister Bear, we both like animals, but she likes bugs, and I don't! My favorite pages are when David was a shepherd and when Sister was standing up to Too-Tall. I like that these books have Christian stuff in them, because they make me think more than the regular ones. The funniest page that I found was with the hornet winking in the bush!My review is a good example of standing up for something, because other reviews out there are saying that these books are bad, just because they are Christian, and some people out there doesn't even believe in God, but they should because they won't have as many problems, and that's a good thing. Now my review: I really like these Christian-themed Berenstain Bears books of the Living Lights series. The traditional series has a long-standing reputation for teaching children important lessons, and the Living Lights series is an outstanding example of that tradition. In this book, Sister Bear stands up to Too-Tall Grizzly, a bully known for picking on others. After hearing Papa Bear read the story of David and Goliath, Sister and Brother stand up to Too-Tall. There's a powerful message for children to stand up for what they believe in and not allow bullies to hurt them or others. It's an important message in this era where stories about bullies seem to make the nightly news on an almost daily basis.

Sister Bear is being bullied and she's scared. After Papa Bear reads the Bear Cubs the story of David and Goliath, however, Sister Bear finds courage in knowing that God is watching over her. Although, I was a bit surprised that Sister Bear's courage led her to grab hold of Bully Too-Tall's arm, the handling of this behavior in the story is dealt with in a comical manner: "Too-Tall swung Sister around and around like David with his sling. But Sister hung on for all she was worth. Finally, Too-Tall gave a great heave and broke Sister's grip." and, fortunately, it is not this action that solves Too-Tall's bullying. If your child is being bullied at school or in the neighborhood, this book may be just silly and non-threatening enough to help open the lines of communication enabling parent and child to discuss the bullying as well as some non-physical options for dealing with the bully. Some starter questions and activities are suggested at the end of the book. I received this book from Zondervan Publishers in exchange for my honest review. The thoughts printed in this review are entirely my own.
