Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Sister and Brother Bear have activities every day after school, and Mama and Papa have their own interests, too. There isn't much time left over for homework, household chores, or just plain family fun. As the Bears' lives grow more hectic, pressure builds! Finally, the Bears take a realistic look at their responsibilities, talents, and the number of hours in the day and choose after-school activities with care.

About the Author

Stan and Jan Berenstain were both born in 1923 in Philadelphia.  They didn't know each other as children, but met later at school, at the Philadelphia College of Art.  They liked each other right away, and found out that the both enjoyed the same kinds of books, plays, music and art.  During World War II, Stan was a medical assistant in the Army, and Jan worked in an airplane factory.  When the war was over, they got married and began to work together as artists and writers, primarily drawing cartoons for popular magazines.  After having their two sons Leo and Michael, the Berenstains decided to write some funny children's books that their children and other children could read and enjoy.  Their first published children's book was called The Big Honey Hunt.  It was about a family of bears, who later became known as the "Berenstain Bears."  


Stan and Jan planned all of their books together. They both wrote the stories and created the pictures.  They continued to live outside of Philadelphia in the country.  There are now over 300 Berenstain Bears books.

Format: Paperback
The Bear Family has become the busiest family in Bear Country. Not because of all the work they have to do, but because of all the activities and organizations they are involved. After the family has a night of bad dreams involving the overworked schedule and Mama has a crying spell when the car won't start, the family sits down to straighten things out.
This book, in a subtle way, reminds us all about how precious life is and how valuable time is. It illustrates how overcommitting oneself can be detrimental and it even touches upon the dangers of listening to peer pressure. In this era of go-go-go, it's a helpful reminder to us all.

Format: Paperback
I'll warn you before buying this book, you might find it to be a real wakeup call. Brother and Sister get involved in a TON of activities and are literally being drug by their parents someplace every day. Whether it's horseback riding, swimming, soccer or dance, Mama is toting them from here to there while trying to fit her own schedule into the mess. Papa helps sometimes, but he's busy with his work too. When the car finally breaks down and Sister and Brother are late for some event, Mama just goes upstairs and cries. This upsets the cubs and Brother runs off into the woods to get his Papa. Mama is okay when he arrives and they have a family meeting right then and there to decide what part of their schedules is going to be eliminated. It really helps you put into place how busy your life can become when you're not looking. Love this book in our house and we HIGHLY recommend it!

Format: Paperback
This was a very chaotic book. It has lots of color and I would recommend it for ages 6-11. This book teaches you how to balance responsibilities, interests, talents, and make time out for family fun, chores, and sharing.

Being 14 I remember reading many of teh Berenstain Bears Series. This one I picked from the library not too long ago, for a project at school. This book not only shows the result of pressure, but also the result of following friends, as Brother and Sister did when they decided to join up for certain activites.

The child that received this was very happy and was looking forward to the stories. He even had several stores read to him the day he opened it up. The smiles, entertainment, and lessons are worth it.
