It’s not fair! Even Brother and Sister Bear have bad days. This excellent read aloud is a great conversation starter about fairness as it helps even the youngest children understand that God has a plan for everything—told in the sweet and trusted way the beloved Berenstain Bears family of books is known for.

Featuring the precious artwork that has made The Berenstain Bears a treasured childhood favorite for nearly six decades, Mama and Papa share with the cubs that good is mixed with the bad and sometimes the good is hard to see.

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.
