Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The family is shopping in the local mall and Sister sees a teddy bear that she really likes. Her birthday is fast approaching and Mama and Papa Bear have the same thought--the teddy bear would make a perfect birthday present. Sister is having trouble with math and Papa is helping her. Before going to sleep Sister sees a star and makes a wish. Her wish comes true. The next night she wishes for a better grade in math. That also comes true. Sister is really taken with a pony and once again wishes for it, but that wish does not come true. Her brother points out that the other wishes came true by a combination of events--her birthday and the extra effort she put in to improve her math skills. As with most Berenstain Bear books, there is a lesson or moral and it usually goes down pretty easily. An "I Can Read Book," Level 1 for Beginning Readers. 2005, HarperCollins, Ages 4 to 8.

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 a great idea to help their young sons, Leo and Michael, learn to read 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.

    Why?

    Why do parents teach their kids this when its just a bunch of bogus?it wont hurt them if they dont believe in a wishing star but it hurts them when you lie to them.

    be careful what you wish for

    Once again the Berenstains are very clear about the lesson of wishing. When Sister Bear wishes for a teddy bear, she is very happy to have her wish come true. However, when she gets greedy with her wishes, Brother Bear reminds her of the magic of wishing stars, and the dangers of being greedy. I loved this book! Highly recommended for all ages!
