Item description for The Berenstain Bears and the Bully (First Time Books(R)) by Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain...

Overview
When she takes a beating from the class bully, Sister Bear learns a valuable lesson in self-defense--and forgiveness.

Publishers Description
Illus. in black-and-white. When Sister Bear gets beaten up by Tuffy, the new cub in town, Brother huffs off to set this bully straight.  But he's in for a surprise--Tuffy's a little girl, and Brother just can't bring himself to fight her.  
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".  

Over 50 children's books later, Stan and Jan still plan all of their books together -- both write the stories, and both write the pictures.  They live outside of Philadelphia in the country.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Berenstain Bears and the Bully (First Time Books(R))?

A Good Solution for the Bully Problem  Apr 14, 2008
Bullying is a reality. Lots of kids get bullied everyday and it isn't always possible to get school or other authorities to deal with the problem. This happened with my own kids. Often schools just want to look the other way and not be bothered by the problem. In that situation, children have to be taught ways of coping for themselves. This book gives parents a good model for how to help their children defend themselves. Some of the other reviews posted say that Sister Bear is taught to be a bully, herself. This just isn't true! She is only taught how to defend herself if she is subject to a vicious and completely unprovoked attack. Let's be realistic, here, not all of us believe in strict pacifism!
 
bully teaching lesson  Feb 20, 2008
I found this book to be a great way to teach and discuss bullying. Several students in my class began religiously teasing one boy and it broke my heart. I read this book to the entire class in order to to open up discussion and hopefully create empathy. Immediately after reading this book, several students realized and openly discussed that they treated "John" like a bully. It was incredible. Then, we talked about how we can better treat each other, as well as, what we can do if we are being bullied. I used this book more like an introduction to bullying & then we discussed it more in depth - once the students made connections. I found this book to be an amazing tool (it worked!)for that purpose :)
 
Pass this one by  Feb 16, 2008
We love the Berenstain Bears books - most of the time. This one, however, isn't worth the trouble. Not to mention that I'm not sure how to explain to my three-year-old what the school psychologist is! I think that the book has good intentions, but frankly it isn't as well-written as others and the message is garbled and ill-advised. In my experience, the older "classic" BB books are better than the newer ones, and this is no exception.
 
Really offers help on a bad situation  Dec 29, 2007
If your child has ever had trouble with a bully, be sure to read this book with him/her. Sister gets beaten up by a new girl who has issues at home, which the book alludes to as borderline child abuse. When Sister tries to defend a baby bird from the bully, this bully tries to beat her up again but this time, after brother's training, Sister defends herself and punches this girl in the nose. There's nothing wrong with teaching a child to defend themselves and I'm very glad that this book does that. There are so very many aggressive children, abused children out there that kids really need to have some sort of defense. After working many years in a children's hospital, you wouldn't believe the things I've seen regarding child abuse. My only problem with this book is that they don't mention that anyone stepped up to care for that cub. The principal was right not to call the cub's parents because that would have instigated more abuse, but again, just sending her to the cub psychologist really isn't enough. This is a very deep book, not one to be taken lightly, but if your child has ever experienced this type of situation, it can be very, very vindicating and empower them not to feel as if they've been belittled, but that they do have an option to help themselves.
 
TERRIBLE! HORRIBLE! HORRENDOUS! LUDICROUS!   Jul 24, 2007
This book shows that beating up bullies is the way to solve the problem. That will only make it WORSE and revenge is no way to solve anything. Sister bear should have used her WORDS instead of her FISTS. She could have said, "That really hurts my feelings when you do that to me. Stop it!" If that didn't work, she could have told her principal or a trusted adult. However, to have her beat up this bully only teaches kids that it is ok to hurt others (deserved or not does not matter). What's next? It is ok to shoot kids dead because they are bullies? I do not recommend this book. No kid should be taught it is ok to hit others. In fact, Sister bear stooped down to this bullies level and became a bully herself. This teaches kids the way to solve problems is to HIT PUNCH HIT HIT PUNCH PUNCH HIT.
