Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

When careless citizens pose a threat to Bear Country's environment, Brother and Sister Bear form the Earthsavers Club. Their spirited ecological efforts deliver a timely message about the urgent need to mend our polluting and wasteful ways.

About the Author

Stan and Jan Berenstain were already successful cartoonists for magazines and adult humor books when they began writing children's books. The first story starring the bear family, The Big Honey Hunt, appeared in 1962. Since then, more than 360 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 300 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons' love of reading has become one of the best-selling children's book series ever.

Format: Paperback
This book shows kids of all ages how important it is to take care of the earth. Not only does it give examples of how pollution can affect our society, but it also explains what children can do to help. It gets them intrested in nature and the environment surrounding them. The authors cleverly added a special twist to the story, about right and wrong. When my three year old cousin comes over, she enjoys reading the Berenstain Bears. I've noticed that she favors this one and I highly suggeat that you at least check this book out at the library.

"The Berenstain Bears Don't Pollute (Anymore)" is another installment in kids' series that introduced one cute bear family and their stories to readers, made by Stan and Jan Berenstain.

In this edition, book theme is pollution and protection of our environment that is a great subject even for the smallest kids in order to emphasize the importance of this topic.

Some citizens who didn't think too much endanger the Bear Country's environment, resulting in Brother and Sister Bear foundation of Earthsavers Club.
And while trying to preserve healthy the only place where they want to live, they two together with small readers are learning how crucial is to live in a clean environment...

Due to all above-mentioned, I can recommend this book both for you and your preschool kids, to read together and afterwards speak about it.
By reading it, kids will be able to learn some new terms for their vocabulary like "conservation" and "recycle" that are everywhere around us but rarely someone makes an effort to explain to the children what they mean.

At times when the clean environment is becoming a crucial issue for the future generations, learning from the earliest years is extremely important.

I needed to replace the hardcover library book with this order. To my SHOCK, this book is cheaply made! The hardcover was THIN, and the printing was MESSED UP! Significant portions of the illustrations on SEVERAL pages were cut off in the printing process. They apparently zoomed in too much on the pictures before cutting the pages to the correct size (character heads were cut off, trees were cut off, etc.). Even some text/sentences were totally cut off or they came really close (just about flush) to the edge of the page! It is very apparent that Quality Assurance was not involved in the post-print process.

If you have to purchase a replacement book from your local library that has a THICK hardcover, maybe this is what you were looking for:

Not only is RegentBook the correct booking binding publisher for the book at my local library, but they were a couple of bucks cheaper that Amazon! Switch publishers, Amazon!

Format: Paperback
Perhaps not the very best of the B. Bears books, but still really good (more of the book is dedicated to actually dealing with environmentalism than to the typical B. B. family plot--Sister and Brother spot polluters in their community and give advice on how to take care of the earth). This is a practical, readable, enjoyable book on the environment. Stan and Jan Berenstain have covered practically every other subject, and do justice to this one. It's simple, but it will stick with kids (and yes, I think it reads aloud just fine). As usual, the illustrations are great--and kids will find the story of how Papa Bear comes around to helping the environment quite funny.

This is a great little book to get young children thinking about the environment and ways we can protect the earth. We used it as a starting point for discussion at my daughter's preschool on Earth Day and it really got them thinking about ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. My kids love the Berenstain Bears and enjoy repeated readings of the books.

In this particular story, the Bear family tackles the subject of the environment, including littering, pollution, ecology, conservation and recycling.

Father Bear reads an article by Professor Actual Factual in the local newspaper, warning that Bear Country is in serious trouble because of pollution. Papa Bear responds "piffle". After all, he tells the cubs, look how beautiful it is outside our door!

Brother Bear points out that the beautiful colors of the sunset they're seeing is actually a result of harmful chemicals.

"Piffle", Father Bear again replies.

Brother Bear must do a report on endangered species, but the library books aren't much help. He decides to visit Prof. Actual Factual at the museum. While all looked well outside the Bear family stoop, other parts of Bear Country weren't so lovely: a fish is caught in a plastic soda can holder, Grizzly Gus--the local mechanic--dumps oil in the stream (causing the deaths of fish), and black smoke poured out of the chimney's at the old box factory.

The siblings ask Prof. Factual to come speak at their school. Inspired by the Professor's talk about the environment, the kids brainstorm ideas for recycling and cleaning up pollution--finally deciding to create the Earthsavers Club.

This is a great book for Earth Day or for teaching children about the consequences of pollution and using resources without replacing them. (For example, Papa Bear cuts down trees--but doesn't replace them by planting new ones.) He eventually joins the community environmental bandwagon--but only AFTER a bad dream.
