When Mama Bear runs for town mayor, she promises to get things done. Is Mama the right bear for the job?

Make your way to the ballot box-Mama is running for mayor! There are lots of improvements to be made in Bear Country, and Mama has a plan. She’s going to fix the roads, pick up the trash, and replace the broken streetlights. But when she promises too much, will the voters still think that she’s the best bear for the job? The Berenstain Bears continue the tradition of bringing engaging stories to beginning readers in this patriotic I Can Read.

Sometimes it is easier to talk about fixing problems. At least talk is definitely faster. In Mama for Mayor, Mama bear is unhappy with the condition of the Bear Country roads and decide she will fix them herself by running for mayor. The main of the book is about the election and it is only at the end when Mama seems to see words are easier than deeds that take time. Great for anytime, but would also be a great read to go along with a what people do all day theme.

Stan and Jan Berenstain began writing the Berenstain Bears series in 1962, with The Big Honey Hunt. Since then more than 250 Berenstain Bears books have been published and sales of the series are nearing 300 million. When Stan passed away in 2005, he left behind a legacy of arguably the best-selling children’s book series ever. The Berenstains have kept the Bears books a family affair, with son Mike Berenstain now writing and illustrating with his mother. You can visit them online at
