Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
At Christmas the Berenstain cubs, Brother, Sister, and Honey, find a Nutcracker Bear to share. When they are tired of playing with their other presents they take the nutcracker to the attic. Papa tells them to use their imaginations and costumes to pretend something. They act out The Nutcracker ballet which they had seen on TV. When they take a nap, suddenly The Nutcracker story becomes real for them. The story fades when Mother calls them for dinner. Grissly Gramps and Gran are there, so the cubs act out the Nutcracker story again. They do not use costumes but tell Gramps and Gran to use their imaginations. The bright cartoon pictures are fun. Children will learn the story and may enjoy using their imaginations to act it out. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman

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 370 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 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.

Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Berenstain Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania.

Great book! We love the Berenstain Bears...and, I was very satisfied with the message. When we went to the annual "Nutcracker" performance, my daughter waited patiently for the parts that Brother and Sister described.
