Book Description

It’s report card day at Bear County School–a day Brother Bear has been dreading. He’s received horrible marks in all of his classes, except gym. If only his grades were based on how many strike-outs he’s pitched or soccer balls he’s stopped and not on fractions and vocabulary.

There’s not a doubt in his mind that Papa will explode when he sees Brother’s report card. The only question is: will he lower the boom on Brother’s extracurricular activities too?

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for kids before kindergarden November 21, 2006
Format:Paperback
Every time when I go to Barnes and Noble, I go to the children's section to look at this book. Right now I have this book and my sisters liked it. They think this book is about getting good grades, even up to straight A's.

Kids, read this book several times, and you can end up getting good grades, even straight A's!!!

I would also give it 100 stars!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Grades, soup, and stereotypes. June 28, 2013
Format:Paperback
Brother Bear has not been studying, spending most of his time in physical education. When the report card comes, it is expectedly unpleasant, and Papa Bear unsurprisingly explodes. Will Brother Bear stay grounded for kingdom come, or will he be able turn around his grades. This

While the emphasis on having a balanced approach to school, judiciously balancing sports and studies, what some parents may not like is the excessive stereotyping of parents in the book. The father, Papa Bear, is angry, shouts, screams, and grounds Brother Bear. Mama Bear allows Papa Bear to berate his son, and timidly steps in only when things threaten to get worse. While it may be true that some fathers behave that way, and it certainly is a stereotypical image of the stern father concerned more with outcomes than with effort, the book does little to either try and change that or send a more nuanced message.
