This book is so cute! I am so glad that I will have this for my son when he gets a bit older. I LOVED the Berenstain Bears growing up and am so excited to carry on that tradition with my little guy. The story about the fishing trip was so funny, and I like that it is a more realistic story of how the parents may have differing thoughts, because that is real life. At the end of the book when things didn’t work as the dad thought they may he says let’s not go fishing anymore and go get the fish from the local guy who the mom said to in the beginning. Basically always listen to your mom, it made me laugh out loud because I wasn’t expecting it.
I also loved the lesson of new friends and how it could make your current friends feel, I think that’s a very good lesson for kids these days. To really think about including everyone because there is so much bullying going on. I hope to instill some of these messages in my child for sure!
