These silly bears have forgotten their manners, so what will mama bear do? This great series book is always a classroom favorite for 1st and second graders. This is a great book to use to talk about manners and sharing as well as talking about personification. The Berenstain Bear books are always good to have in a classroom! ( )

This Berenstain Bears book goes along with the theme of discipline. Mama Bear notices that her young cubs and Papa Bear have gotten very rude lately. Pushing, shoving, just all around being impolite. She tried talking to them, yelling at them and nothing worked. So she gets the idea to create a politeness plan. With this plan, whenever someone does something rude, they have to do a chore. When the cubs realize Mama is serious about this plan they decide to be over polite in the hope that she'll get sick of it.However, the cubs plan backfires and instead of being over polite they eventually just become polite without even realizing it. Mama Bear saw that something was wrong, and when nothing was working, she decided to try a whole new way of looking at things. Sometimes yelling and shouting is not the answer, but if I child does something wrong they should be punished. ( )
