Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carly Reagan
Everyone's favorite family of bears is back in a Valentine's Day themed installment of the "Berenstain Bears" series. Sister Bear's class is celebrating Valentine's Day, and her teacher places surprise Valentine's messages around the room before the children exchange Valentines with each other, some of them nicer than others. Each Valentine is hidden behind a flap for readers to lift in order to reveal the message, an interactive touch to a very simple story. Though many of the "Berenstain Bears" books are focused upon a moral or specific topic for children to learn about or reflect upon, the point of this particular story is merely to share the fun messages inside each Valentine card and to please readers with the lift-the-flap novelty. A simple but limited story that is good for reading on Valentine's Day in the classroom or to give as a Valentine's gift as an creative alternative to cards and candy. Reviewer: Carly Reagan

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.

The Berenstain Bears book series is one of the most adorable set of classic books for young children. There is always humor but also a subtle moral lesson. Good family values are are taught in a fun, colorful family of bears. My children wanted these books read to them over and over. Because they are inexpensive paperbacks, everyone can start a children's library with these books. I never give a baby shower gift without a book and most often, a Berenstain Bears book. I also work with special needs children and there is a book in this series for every holiday. The language is simple but the dialogue is entertaining. "Valentine's Party" was a hit at home and in class.
