In The Berenstain Bears Why Do Good Bears Have Bad Days, Sister and Brother Bear decide to go on a bike ride and fishing trip in the countryside. After a hopeful start, things go very wrong. Brother falls into the pond, Sister’s fishing rod breaks, and they get caught in the rain on the way home. Why did this bad stuff happen to them? It’s not fair! Mama and Papa share with the cubs that good is mixed with the bad and sometimes the good is hard to see. But soon the family concludes that God has a plan for everything and faith in his plan allows us to trust that good will come in the end. The Berenstain Bears Living Lights stories serve as early readers, excellent read-alouds, and engaging conversation starters.
About the Author
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.
