Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
When Papa Bear brings home a computer to help him with his woodworking business, his entire family wants computers of their own. Mama is on E-bear buying and selling, the kids have web sites and social media. Even the baby, Honey, is playing games on a toy computer. The family is not spending anytime together anymore; homework is not getting done, and feelings are being hurt by some mild cyber-bullying. While the plot line is predictable, it makes valid points about the risks of having too much technology in the home. It also presents a lot of ideas for alternate activities if real-life parents are wishing to reclaim family time from gaming and surfing the web. And of course, the classic illustrations of the Berenstain bears we have all grown to know and love over the years are still appealing in this very timely tale. Whether read with youngsters at home or at school, this book should start some good discussions. Reviewer: Dianne Ochiltree

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.
