Publishers Description "Who's to blame?" That's what everyone always wants to know. But the kernal of wisdom at the heart of this latest "First Time Book" is who really cares?

More About Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain
Stan and Jan Berenstain were both born in 1923 in Philadelphia. They didn't know each other as children, but met later at school, at the Philadelphia College of Art. They liked each other right away, and found out that the both enjoyed the same kinds of books, plays, music and art. During World War II, Stan was a medical assistant in the Army, and Jan worked in an airplane factory. When the war was over, they got married and began to work together as artists and writers, primarily drawing cartoons for popular magazines. After having their two sons Leo and Michael, the Berenstains decided to write some funny children's books that their children and other children could read and enjoy. Their first published children's book was called The Big Honey Hunt. It was about a family of bears, who later became known as the "Berenstain Bears." Stan and Jan planned all of their books together. They both wrote the stories and created the pictures. They continued to live outside of Philadelphia in the country. There are now over 300 Berenstain Bears books.

A Great Lesson Apr 15, 2008
This provides a nice model for how to deal with the problem of siblings blaming eachother for everthing.
The Berenstain Bears Are A Family Favorite Feb 2, 2008
We own at lease 10 of these children's books! Each story teaches a different life lesson. "The Blame Game." teaches not to waste time blaming others for what is most likely, simply an accident. When sister bear breaks the window, she blames brother bear for pitching the ball so close to the house.
Finally, papa bear steps in to stop the bickering. Mother bear and papa bear work together to get the kids to act more responsibly and stop "the blame game." Great stories for kids!
Still good, but I've read better Jan 9, 2008
My son loves these books and I love the lessons they teach. We have over 15 of these books. I appreciate how Mom and Dad work together to teach the kids lessons, however this one did not deliver like others. This one ended on a note that seemed abrupt. I even wondered what sort of lesson or outcome they desired. Usually my son wants to read the books again right away, but this one has only been read once, so I think he even struggled with understanding it completely. I still gave it four stars anyway, because we do enjoy the books at my house.
Great basis for a family conversation Sep 12, 2007
We love the Berenstain Bears in our household. We have 2 girls who are 2 years apart and starting the "blame game" and we found this book helpful. We'll read it with the girls and then discuss it. There are times when we just read it to keep the story fresh in their minds. I found it to be helpful to me also, it's a good reminder that yelling and shouting don't solve the problem at hand and to focus on a solution together is a more productive solution.
Great book to teach kids about blame Dec 29, 2005
This one should definitely be in every library! It's wonderful about teaching kids (and adults) that when things happen, there's always enough blame to go around to isolating one individual is usually not the best so, just chip in and help clean up the mess or fix the problem. Fantastic message - definitely helps with the "she did it" or "he did its" and promotes teamwork in helping to solve whatever problem occurred. Highly recommend!
