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.

We are moving and I was worried that our 3yo wasn't understanding what was going on around him. My husband and I wanted to try and help him to come to terms with leaving the only room and house he's ever known.
This book is absolutly FANTASTIC! It explains that the house they are leaving was a good house and explains why they are choosing to move. It talks about how they will take Brother Bears books and toys (he was worried he would have to leave them). It does a wonderful job of explaining that it's necessary to leave friends while not making it sad. They have managed to make *ME* feel better about leaving friends and our house.
Our son can't wait to move now. If he has a question, he asks and we tell him and try to relate it to the bears story to help him understand. I can't give this book enough stars!

By A Customer on September 30, 1999
Format: Paperback
My three year old son cried for hours after I told him the movers would be packing up his toys and books...but he would get them back at our new home. A friend lent me this book. The book broke things down into language little ones could understand. They identified with the characters and saw that all in all, it turned out o.k. As we read the book, we discussed it. My three year old learned all about moving day. How much fun we would have at our new home..and he even asked where we would be moving. I told him Chicago..and he has been telling everyone. This book took my three year old from tears to EXCITEMENT for moving day. If your planning a move..especailly a big one like we were....if you do nothing else for your child...buy them this book, to help them with their feelings and the transition.

In 1981 we moved cross coutry with our three year old son. This book helped "develop" the pictures of the process for him. Now I am in the "mentor" position for other young mothers facing long distance moves. This is my first gift choice for them and their three or four year olds to make the process understandable and FUN. Patricia Smith, RNS, MS

A Kid's Review on October 17, 2001
Format: Paperback
This was one of the best children's books I have read, and I recommend it for children that are getting ready to move. This book was written by Stan and Jan Berenstain.
Moving day is about a family of bears, they are Papa bear, Mama bear, and brother bear. Before they moved to the valley, they lived in a cave. Mama had a vegetable garden, and Papa cut down trees and made furniture. Brother kept busy playing with his many friends, which were animals. Then Papa bear said that they they needed to move because the trees were getting farther and farther away and Mama bear agreed that they needed to move because the soil was getting too hard for her vegetable garden. Brother bear was very sad about moving because he would miss his friends. Mama bear said that he could write his old friends and make new friends when they moved into their new house. They moved into a treehouse that needed alot of work. As they looked at it and imagined how it would look after it was fixed up, the neighbors came over to say "hi". Now the bears had new friends and after they fixed up the treehouse it was just perfect!

Too wordy with a complicated story line. The pictures flip from one scene and back to the next without understandable progression for a three year old. It would be good for a child over 5 in my opinion.

I bought this for my little lady (3) before we moved and we must have read it a dozen times. As a result she was very comfortable with the movers, boxes, packing, leaving the old place and accepting the new place. Of course a child can handle a move without this book, but I felt it gave mine confidence and a sense of stability in a time of big change.

Great book

I enjoyed reading this book to my toddler before our upcoming move, especially as we, too, were moving from a small, cavelike space to a fixer-upper in the country. I remembered this book fondly from my own childhood, too. What I forgot was that Mama and Papa Bear move Brother Bear with only a day's notice and no chance to truly say goodbye to his friends. In today's modern world, there are far more ample opportunities for kids to stay connected, and this book misses an opportunity to reassure children about this. Still, it does speak nicely to the difficulty of moving and the anxiety young children might feel.

We are getting ready to move to a new house, and my 3 year old has not been handling it well. This book helped my son understand that moving is not so bad, and that all of his belongings and family will come with him. I highly suggest preparing young children prior to a move, as a big change is very stressful on little ones. The story is not as long as some of the other Bernstein Bears books, and is perfect for engaging my 3 year old.
