a good book for my kiddos!
The Berenstain Bears Hug and Makeup by Stan and Jan Berenstain was ok, but not our favorite. There is just so much grumpiness, crankiness, stubbornness. I was so glad to get to then end. Finally, we get a positive message, of forgiveness and happiness.

Unrealistic story, unrealistic expectations.

What. This makes no sense. Nobody acts like this. This is ridiculous. They're trying to get a message across, but they're doing it by depicting an unrealistic scenario. You can't do that; it doesn't work. It doesn't have a bad message; it just fails utterly at getting that message across.

Mama stubs her toe, the baby screams, and people aren't polite to each other at the breakfast table and call each other names. Everybody's mad. They get in fights. Mam

Last night, I babysat my neighbors' three young boys. They are super sweet kids, but there are some times when they get in loud (and sometimes physical) arguments. So, as their bedtime story, I chose this book to read to them. I had assumed they have read it at least a dozen times already, but I thought it would be healthy for them to reflect on how to solve problems without fighting. Great teaching tool for young siblings.

This one is for all you game of thrones readers. Exploring an incestuous relationship between little bear mutants thoroughly, it goes beyond the physical and drives into the psychology of it all. The characters are archetypes for deformations and mutations, mental and physical that occur when behaviours of siblings having sex are socially enforced. An uneasy read overall.

I was a big fan of the Berenstain Bears and the Bad Habit it really changed my life and was the impetus that led me to kicking my raging Heroine addiction. I’ve been putting off reading The Berenstain Bears Hug and Make Up because I don’t know if I can handle such a hefty read. I’m not sure if there’s room for forgiveness in my life right now.

With all the books we've checked out from the library, this is the first one he's actually sat down and listened to without any problems. Usually he's jumping around and we have to threaten to close the book to get him to pay attention. This was not the case here.

This children's book is about emotional contagion - each person catches the "got-up-on-the-wrong-side-of-the-bed" feeling until finally, the grumpiness and tension is broken by a funny situation. It's a good one to read with children who working to understand how emotions can be shared.

This book grasps the concept that even if families get mad at each other, or have disagreements, they will always love one another. The illustrations were very colorful so that it would capture the children's attention. This book was very easy to read, and age appropriate.

This is a good book about "making up" after an agrument. It also teaches about being considerate and always talking after an argument. This would be helpful if you had a class that argued a lot.

Told in rhyme that's easy for little readers to enjoy. Small words in bold print and colorful pages and a story about getting along.
