Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Sister and Brother bear are cast in the play and have to learn about stage fright and how to handle it.
Like other Berenstain Bears books this one gives a good moral while following the activities of the curious bear family. The pictures are fun and the story is easily followed.
This is a very nice portrayal of how performance and stage fright are not always what we expect, and of the larger lesson of how there are some things in life we just can not completely prepare for. The story has a nice sort of twist to the end that many young readers will probably find satisfying, although it results in what seems like a little gloating from one of the characters. All in all, though, this is a cute story, and a clever Shakespearean reference in the opening poem on the cover page provides a starting point for parents and teachers to introduce older readers more to classical theatre.
