I love "The Berenstain Bears" series, and I really wanted to like this book too. The Father's Day elements were sweet.

But as far as lessons in ethics, the Bears missed it this time around. Lying is okay when it's in furtherance of keeping secrets? Really? REALLY?

Celebrate Father's day with the Berenstain Bears. Papa scoffs at father's day and says he doesn't want to celebrate, but as the day draws nearer he softens and begins to worry that his family won't celebrate father's day.

I loved when he got the chair at the end. I like it because it was cute to see the little baby being fed by papa.
