Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Berenstain Bears' Trouble with Money(The Berenstain Bears) This story teaches practical lessons about money with a bit of humor. The story begins with Brother and Sister spending money that is simply given to them, as a present, from their neighbor, Gramps, and even Papa. Mama is concerned with how they instantly spend all of their money on material items and save nothing. This story takes you from one extreme to the other. Where the cubs are spending all of the money that is given to them, then once Papa gets angry they begin to work very hard and save every single penny and become almost greedy with their money at which point Papa is again concerned. Near the end of the story Papa is pleasantly surprised to learn that Brother and Sister have been saving all of the money for him as he had been angry with their carefree attitude towards money initially. Kids will enjoy the literal interpretations of figure of speech that Papa shouts out as he’s upset. Finally, it is decided that they should go to the bank with the money they earned and open a savings account. This story teaches children the value of money and how to both save and spend.
