Brother and Sister have gotten into the habit of sometimes treating their Mama and Papa with less than the respect they deserve.

What an absolutely valuable lesson! (for the Mama and Papa’s as well as kiddos…) The Berenstain Bears have always been a favorite staple of my bookshelves for as long as I can remember, but since they started the Living Lights series the moral lessons have gotten better and better and even incorporate scripture. What could be better to encourage my girls! Here and there I have found a few manners books, some I really find annoying, but others are quite cute and portray a lesson quite well.
This book takes the reader along a journey to picnic with the whole Bear Family, grandparents included. It’s an adventure, but also a great way to show and explain respect and why it is important and how it is possible for any age to need a reminder now and then. Forgiveness, learning and moving forward is a wonderful thing.
I cannot wait to add more and more Berenstain Bear books to our shelves for my girls to enjoy for years to come.

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.
