I would highly recommend this book to anyone with small children.
Elle C.
My children loved having Berenstain Bears books read to them, and those are also the books with which they learned to read.
Sally C. Morris
I purchased this book specifically because it was a hardback and a collection which is hard to find.

These are some of my favorites. I love the older Berenstain stories better than the newer ones. They have so much more humor and character. I couldn't wait to share them with my kids. It had them all laughing. I'm surprised at the negative review. Where is their sense of humor? This is great fun that you and your kids will love unless you're a stick in the mud :) or you take them too seriously.

The book is good and the stories are long but pretty simple (easy for a 4-year-old to follow). The rhyming and repetition are wonderful tools to help my son learn to read, and the stories are very silly (Papa Bear is a great example of "what not to do").

The darker stories can be a little scary to the kiddos, but I've found if we focus on another aspect in the story (like how the bears lost their tools (for lack of a better word), or the excitement of all the little passageways in the tree), my boy is still intrigued (though snuggling close--a bonus, I think!) and doesn't have nightmares.

This was another book we checked out at the library for a while before we decided to add it to our own. We definitely enjoy reading it together.

I purchased this book specifically because it was a hardback and a collection which is hard to find. My daughter and I love reading the Berenstain Bears Books and it is was nice to find a Beginner Book. We have read many of the later books and I was surprised when I learned that this collection only had Sister Bear in 2 of the stories. Yet, these early years of the bear family stories are just as entertaining and maybe more humerous. In The Bike Lesson and the Bears' Picnic Papa Bear is more of a bumbling and stubborn bear and the bears are not as plump as illustrated in the later books. My daughter loves these stories even the ones without Sister Bear. I do recommend this book, the stories are fun and perfect for an early reader.

Have always loved the Berenstain Bear books. This is a nice find with so many of their stories in one book. The stories aren't so long that the kids loose interest, yet they are not too simple that the books are out grown quickly. This is a nice grandma book, one to have on hand when the grandkids come to stay. Enjoyable for everyone.

This book has a mixture of stories you can read to the child and stories the child can read to you. The variety of reading levels makes it extremely useful for teaching reading. The stories and illustrations keep the child's attention. The words get used over and over to reinforce reading skills while not being boring.

Not a fan. This collection of "stories" are actually Dr. Seuss type rhyming stories that as other reviewers have noted do not particularly put Papa Bear in a good light. I'm not taking some stand here....I'm just familiar with the other style - Afraid of the Dark, Go to the Doctor, Messy Room, Forget their Manners etc....those are what I like...this is not. I shouldn't have gotten this. I wish my children would forget they have this book so I could donate it.
