Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Full of simple sentences and manageable for a beginning reader, this title joins the hundreds of Berenstain Bears books already available for children. If children already have favorites from the series and are familiar with the Berenstain family, that background knowledge will draw them to this story. Sister, Mama, Brother, and Papa are all there. Although the text has familiar characters, it does contain a few surprises. In particular, those surprises—such as which puppy they pick or what happens when Mama plans a trip back to the farm—allow students to practice a more advanced type of prediction (what they think will happen next and adjusting their prediction). This title can actually be used in a class-read-aloud, or big-book-shared-reading experience to facilitate that skill. As with many of the Berenstain Bear titles, this one can also be used to teach character education (responsibility) or themes about visiting the farm and caring for pets. 2005, HarperCollins, Ages 5 to 6.
—Cathy Puett Miller
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-In keeping with the Berenstains' tradition, New Pup has an engaging plot and familiar illustrations. It is a basic beginning reader, with just a few simple sentences per page. The young bears' new pet does all the mischievous things that puppies do. This book is nothing new or unusual in text or art, but Berenstain Bears fans and dog lovers will appreciate it.-Laurel L.

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.
