    I love this book because it goes from the topic of bullying over to peer pressure and shows vividly what kids go through on a daily basis. The situation Brother Bear gets into - starting with the best intentions - gets him in way over his head. How he gets out of it, with the help of some grown-ups, makes for a great book on how to deal with both situations. This is probably one of my favorites in the series.

    Another good installment in the Berenstain Bears series. This book follows Brother Bear and discusses how easy it is to be sucked into doing things based upon peer pressure. Through the story you see Brother Bear wrestle with whether to join the Too Tall gang and go along with their exploits, but in a manner that young children find accessible. The illustrations as always are fantastic, very detailed, the small town feel is comforting, and this book and the series continue to be a favorite in ou Another good installment in the Berenstain Bears series.

If you are looking for a book or series for young children with great writing and pictures, and with a moral to almost every story, this is one to consider. I very highly recommend both the book and the series.

    What's sad about this story is that there are grown-ups who don't outgrow the compulsion to be liked and end up in a world of trouble. Thank goodness, Brother Bear wises up after Farmer Ben advises him. It's a relief that everything works out for the Berenstain Bears.

    The Berenstain Bears books were a staple in my house. Often being bought by my parents to teach me a lesson. Any time you see this kid with the purple hat you KNOW there's trouble.

    Still holds up re: bullying and peer pressure. "Dee-double dare" and "Widder Bruin" may need explaining to today's kids, but the meaning holds. Still holds up re: bullying and peer pressure. "Dee-double dare" and "Widder Bruin" may need explaining to today's kids, but the meaning holds.

    I'm impressed with how brave Brother is in this -- even now, I shy away from confrontation, so as a grown-ass lady, would I even be able to stand up to Too-Tall Grizzly? Brother's noble heroism and lesson-learning aside, the ending seems much darker to me today than it did as a child: Too-Tall's father bursts from the forest to scare the shit out of his bully son and friends. Is Too-Tall a bully because his dad is a bully? The book says they look a lot alike.

    ★★★★The Berenstain Bears and the Double Dare by Stan and Jan Berenstain Well, this one has Brother Bear dealing with Too-Tall, the local bully. Too-Tall invites him to join his gang, Brother Bears says he wants to go, and the boys call him a chicken. He says he's not, so he gets double dared to steal a pumpkin. When he gets caught, the others run. Farmer Ben teaches Brother not to give in to peer pressure, and acting like a "sheep." ★★★★The Berenstain Bears and the Double Dare by Stan and Jan Berenstain Well, this one has Brother Bear dealing with Too-Tall, the local bully.

    My son has really taken a liking to the Berenstain Bears, he is 6 and almost in 2nd grade. He enjoys reading about the Berenstain Bears and I like the great examples that they provide. As he gets older, I worry about bullying and teasing in school and I like how this book handled the situation. It's nice how a lot of these books have the cubs turning to a trusted older adult for advice, I definitely want my son to remember he can always ask for help from any adult in his life.

    The Berenstain Bears books have always been my favorite! I love how these books incorporate a life lesson that is easy for young children to understand and relate to. The pictures in this book and the way it is written makes it very easy to hold attention. I think this book as well as the rest of the series would be great to use in a classroom and would make it very easy to introduce an upcoming lesson.

    I think there's a very good reason that this book series has spanned decades and maintained popularity. It gives children the chance to think on their own and make their own choices for behaviors that carry over into their adult lives. Many of these issues will be ones that will persist through their lives, just on different levels of course.

    This is my second Berenstain Bears story. These stories are incredibly easy to read. I would say that they take about ten minutes to read. I found this one to be pretty amusing. I think my favorite line from the book was "The dee-double dare did it." I will continue tomorrow in my quest to read more of these Berenstain Bears books. It's a pretty worthwhile series so far.

    Brother is angry when bullies steal Sister's jump rope and he tries to get it back, earning respect from the bullies who now think he is tough enough to be in their gang. Brother doesn't want to join them but doesn't want to be called chicken, and ends up in big trouble. Poor Brother!

    This is a good story to read with young schoolage children to start a conversation about bullying and peer pressure. It's a fairly typical book from the Berenstains, full of fun illustrations and good moral lessons.

    My 5-year-old likes the Berenstain Bears. Most of the stories have a moral. In this book, the moral is that you should make your own decisions and not give in to peer pressure.

    A book about integrity. I like how Brother Bear retaliates to being called a chicken, by calling them sheep. I thought this was a pretty good example of a possible scenario for kids growing up.
