Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1–This update modifies the original book (Random, 1980) and adds a slightly more religious message. It is Christmas Eve and the Berenstain Bears need a tree. Of course, Papa makes a mess of things and learns that Christmas is “a time to be thinking of others–/to show love and respect to your sisters and brothers/And to treat them all/with kindness and concern.” The added references to Sunday school, Jesus, a Nativity scene, and God will not be noticed unless readers are doing a close textual analysis. The rhymes are slightly more awkward than usual, but the kids who love the Bears family’s solid traditional values won’t be too bothered by any changes. If your old copies are worn out, this will be a popular addition.–Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library
