The Berenstain Bears’ Please and Thank You Book {Review and Giveaway}




As a book lover myself, I love any chance to instill a love of books into my boys.  Gathered together on one or the other of their beds at night, cracking open the pages of a new book is always one of my fondest memories to make with them.  When the book teaches them a childhood lesson, even better!


About the book

The cherished Bear family is coming to a new generation of toddler and preschool readers.

Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962 and the Bear family celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012!  Here the charming and lovable Bear family is once again introducing children to the typical issues and questions that they face every day.

In The Berenstain Bears’ Please and Thank You Book, little readers are introduced to the importance of manners, through gentle reminders given to Brother, Sister, and Honey as they await their milk and cookies.  The short story and well-loved characters provide toddlers a perfect introduction to valuable life lessons and routines.

Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears.  Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too.  Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike carries on his parents’ love of creating Berenstain Bear stories from southeastern Pennsylvania, which looks a lot like Bear Country.


My thoughts

As I slid my copy of The Berenstain Bears’ Please and Thank You Book from the envelope fond memories of reading the Berenstain Bears’ stories  growing up came flooding back, like when old friends come to visit.

  The bright colorful illustrations beckon you to open the book and invite you to stay awhile.  My children sat enthralled as Mama Bear taught Brother, Sister, and Honey a sweet lesson in manners, with my oldest chiming in with the answer each time Mama Bear would ask, “What do you say when_?”  I like that Papa Bear joins in the lesson at the end with his manners on full display for the cubs as well!  I recommend that anyone with small children pull up a seat, open this book, and make some memories as your children tag along while lessons are learned along side these beloved characters!

  1. Oooooh I love the Bears!!! Read these over and over and over – as you do! My girlies BFF is expecting her first baby and I would love to give this to her to help start her baby’s library out right! FUN!


  2. Favorite book to read to kiddos? That is a terribly hard question. I just blogged about our favorite 10 baby books about a week ago & it was so hard to just pick 10. And that was baby books only! I would pick Baby’s Best Friend, because my daughter gets super excited with the baby & animal pictures.
