This is a good example of fantasy literature, because it is not realistic and yet it solves a real life problem. The idea that bears can talk and interact like people is fake, however having conflict with your siblings is very real. Regardless of whether the reader is a boy or girl, both parties will be able to empathize with and learn from the situation at hand.

I liked this book for two reasons. First, the illustrations enhance the story and are appropriate to the mood of the story. The character's emotions are clearly portrayed through their facial expressions, which helps the audience understand the emotions that each character is feeling as the story goes on. The illustrations help to enhance the story because it helps the audience follow along with the plot and provides them with an image to help them visualize the story taking place. I also like this book because the characters were well-developed and relatable to the target audience. While it the main characters are bears, it is relatable in the sense that students may have felt similar struggles with their peers and have felt left out. The characters' feelings and emotions throughout this book are relatable to the audience, making the characters more believable. For example, the author writes, "News of the No Girls Allowed club traveled fast, and there were quite a few other sisters who didn't like the idea of being left out" (p. 22). Many students may feel that being left out is relatable to them, which helps make the characters more relatable because of their experiences. Overall, the big idea of this story is to include everyone even if they are different from you. Friendship is an important thing that should not be restricted. ( )

“The Berenstain Bears: No Girls Allowed” is one of my favorite books of the Berenstain Bears Series. Sister bear and Brother bear were spending a lot of time together and Brother began to get very annoyed with Sister. One day, Brother and all of his boy friends got together and made a fort for only boys, “no girls allowed!” At the end of the book Brother and Sister worked out all of their differences and the new fort was open for anyone to play in. This book taught about dealing with conflict and making sure that everyone is included. One positive attribute to this book is how there are multiple illustrations on each page to show what Brother and Sister are doing in a sequence of events. For example, on one page there is a picture of Brother and Sister climbing a tree and playing marbles. Another reason that I like this book is because the emotions of the characters are shown so clearly on all of the characters faces, which is important when reading a book about hurting people’s feelings. Lastly, some of the text throughout to book is in italics to show an exaggeration of the actions that are being spoken of. ( )
