Berenstain Bears Show Some Respect
This classic storybook series was one of my favorites growing up. For those who don't know, The Berenstain Bears are a fun family of bears, Mama, Papa, Sister, and Brother Bear (and sometimes baby Honey), who live in a tree house and have all sorts of adventures. The colorful pictures and fairly easy to read text make them perfect for both story time and independent reading for kids. The cool thing about these books is that Brother and Sister Bear (and even sometimes Mama and Papa or other friends) learn some kind of lesson in each story that readers could easily apply to their own life. With the charming stories, cute characters, colorful illustrations, and valuable lessons taught, this series has become a classic for a reason. Books can be enjoyed independently and in any order.
