Most of the cubs at Bear Country School get along most of the time.
But when rivals are cast opposite each other in the school play,
Romeo and Grizzliet, Brother and Sister Bear have to decide
if they should mind their own business or get involved as peacemakers
to save the performance.
I grew up reading The Berenstain Bears books
and now as a mother I enjoy reading these beloved books with my young son.
I appreciate the good lessons presented in the books
and I love how the newer publications are focused upon the Lord
and have a biblical message for the kids as well as for the parents.
In Blessed are the Peacemakers Brother and Sister Bear
prepare for the school's play which includes two groups that don't always see eye-to-eye.
Brother and Sister Bear come between these two groups
and are great examples of being peacemakers.
In this book, the lesson of turning from evil and doing good,
seeking peace and pursuing it is presented in a manner
that all ages can understand it and be inspired to be peacemakers themselves.
My son has asked his dad and me to read this book almost every night
because he enjoys it so much.
This is a wonderful character building story with the beloved Berenstain Bears.
** I was given a complimentary copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers for an honest review.
All thoughts are my own and no other compensation was received. **
About the Author
Stan and Jan Berentsain 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, 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 in Bear Country.
