The Berenstain Bears and the Wishing Star (I Can Read Book 1 Series)by Jan Berenstain, Stan Berenstain
Sister Bear is thrilled by the magic of the wishing star, but Brother Bear teaches her that hard work is important too.
Children's LiteratureThe family is shopping in the local mall and Sister sees a teddy bear that she really likes. Her birthday is fast approaching and Mama and Papa Bear have the same thought--the teddy bear would make a perfect birthday present. Sister is having trouble with math and Papa is helping her. Before going to sleep Sister sees a star and makes a wish. Her wish comes true. The next night she wishes for a better grade in math. That also comes true. Sister is really taken with a pony and once again wishes for it, but that wish does not come true. Her brother points out that the other wishes came true by a combination of events--her birthday and the extra effort she put in to improve her math skills. As with most Berenstain Bear books, there is a lesson or moral and it usually goes down pretty easily. An "I Can Read Book," Level 1 for Beginning Readers. 2005, HarperCollins, Ages 4 to 8.

Once again the Berenstains are very clear about the lesson of wishing. When Sister Bear wishes for a teddy bear, she is very happy to have her wish come true. However, when she gets greedy with her wishes, Brother Bear reminds her of the magic of wishing stars, and the dangers of being greedy. I loved this book! Highly recommended for all ages!
Why do parents teach their kids this when its just a bunch of bogus?it wont hurt them if they dont believe in a wishing star but it hurts them when you lie to them.
