Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Another popular ursine clan heads for a seaside cottage in The Berenstain Bears Go on Vacation by Stan and Jan Berenstain with Mike Berenstain, where swimming, sand castles and fishing await. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Judy DaPolito
It is summer and the bears are ready to travel to the beach. Easy-to-read verses tell the story of their long drive, their arrival at the beach, and the cottage where they will stay. Text and illustrations highlight the fun of splashing, the comfort of family, the look of the sunrise, the coziness of the general store, the attractions of boats and sand castles, and the sights of the local museum on a rainy day. The story ends with the bears looking at the sunset over the ocean as they start off for home with the promise that they will come back for another happy vacation. Colorful illustrations are full of movement.
Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Take a trip to the sunny seaside shores of Gull Island where the Berenstain Bears go for their summer vacation. As they pack for their adventure, the family anticipates the fun, and water activities that await them at their sandy destination. Once they arrive at the house where they will be staying, the whole family spends some time swimming at the beach before the sun goes down. Each day is filled with beach related activities like swimming, building sandcastles, and visiting the Gull Island Museum when the weather turned gray. Colorful, comical illustrations fill the pages showing the Berenstain's family vacation along with a few funny moments. The rhythm and rhyme provide a fast pace like any enjoyable vacation when the days just fly by. Find out who makes a great catch while fishing for dinner. Relax and join Papa, Mama, Brother, Sister, and Baby Honey as they have a wonderful time on their summer vacation at the beach. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung

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.
