Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Woo-hoo, all aboard! Join the Berenstain Bears as they take a train trip to visit Aunt Tillie. Grizzly Jones is the engineer driving the train and Mr. Mack is the conductor. Along the way from Grizzlyville to Beartown, the Berenstain Bears see many sights like their home, the town, and the mountain wildlife as the train moves along the tracks. Sister and Brother get to visit the engine as Grizzly Jones drives the train. There are color pictures that illustrate the story and support the text. The book is part of the "I Can Read!" series. Although this book is marked as "Beginning Reading," some young readers may need support with the multiple lines of text, varied sentence structures, and vocabulary. Those children who are fans of the Berenstain Bear stories may enjoy hearing this adventure read aloud. At the front of the book, there's a note for parents (and caregivers) with some general guidance when supporting young readers. There is a web site listed as a source for a few activities.

Meet 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 250 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 260 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons' interest in children's books has become over the years arguably the best-selling children's book series ever.

Since their inception, the Berenstain Bears stories have expanded to include picture books, beginning readers, and chapter books—even a hit TV show on PBS. Writing and illustrating the books has become a Berenstain family affair. Mike joined with his parents as a creative team in the late 1980s. The Bear family has expanded over the years as well. Sister Bear arrived in 1974, and baby Honey joined the family in 2000.

Since Stan's death at age eighty-two in 2005, Jan and Mike have continued to write and illustrate wonderful new adventures for Mama, Papa, Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear. They live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, which looks a lot like Bear Country.
