This was an excellent book for my 4 year old who's afraid of the dark. We read it over and over and talk about the things in the book that scare brother and sister. We discuss how silly being scared is when you think about what it is that scares you. A great read for a little boy.

Berenstain Bears in the dark

My kids love berenstain bears they tackle just about every issue a kid would go through and gives them encouragement and useful ways to handle the issue. In the dark is no exception my daughter liked the fact that others get scared too andThey encouraged her to face her fears. It even had a funny ending. Just as good as the Tv show. Good for 1st and 2nd level readers. Great to read to any age.

A very cute, teaching book

We got this book as part of a set and it's just great. I have to read this one over and over again but I don't mind because it definitely has a good lesson. When brother bear takes out a mystery book to read from the library, sister gets a little scared when he reads part of it to her. He then wails like the cave in the story once they get in bed just to torment her but receives his just reward when sister can't go to sleep without the light on. So, the whole family is up with sister and quite "sleepy-eyed" in the morning. Papa bear sets up his old nightlight for sister who then gets her chance for revenge when she tells brother she wished the story ended with a spooky monstoer and hangs over the edge of the top bunkbed and makes a scary face at him! Brother has a little trouble sleeping after that and decides that mysteries are exactly his "thing" just then. It's fun to read for adults, all of us who remember hanging over the edge of the top bunk to scare a sibling below. I really laughed when I read that. Pretty funny stuff, especially since I did that too! My little one loves this book and it really does help explain how to not let shadows scare you. Great book, great find.

The Berenstain Bears In The Dark

This book is about brother bear and sister bear going to the library to get some books. When they arrived home it was reading time and brother bear scared sister bear reading her his scary book he checked out. That night sister bear couldn't fall asleep because she was scared so papa bear gave her a nightlight. That helped her fall asleep and she wasn't scared of the dark anymore. The lesson this book teaches is to not be afraid of the dark. It's a good book and I recommend it for children ages 3-10.

A Berenstain Bears Classic

Stan and Jan Berenstain turned out some of their finest books during the early 1980s, and The Berenstain Bears In the Dark is certainly one of their best. A best-seller since its release (now almost 20 years ago) there is a simple reason for its success: the book tells a wonderfully beautiful and fun story but one that is also very true to life. In the book, a night light is placed in the cubs' bedroom because of Sister's fear of the dark. By the end of the book, though, the reader sees that Brother (who argued against the "babyish" light) actually is in need of the night light as much or more than his sister. It is a fun story for kids and one that can be very useful for parents. The story is great and the illustrations are classic Berenstain Bears. This is a personal favorite that I remember from my own childhood and one I will continue to read for years to come! If you have not read it or do not own a copy, get one today, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!
