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 & 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 shorter story length and well-loved characters provide toddlers a perfect introduction to valuable life lessons and routines. Ages 2 to 5.

My childhood was filled with books and characters. Two such series characters include The Berenstain Bears and Richard Scarry. Now, I love introducing my children to the same. In my experience, when someone talks about the Please and Thank You Book my though goes to an 8×8″ pictureback Richard Scarry easy reader with seven short stories on character; or even a more recent Little Golden Book. Thus when a review opportunity came up for The Berenstain Bears of the same title I jumped! I was delighted to discover a medium size board book in the mail by Mike Berenstain.

As soon as I finished reading this Berenstain Bears short story my three year old grabbed it and ran of squealing both, “Please! Thanks, Mama!” We love the Berenstain Bears and I love this little story about manners with cookies and milk. I love that it is a board book and thus I can introduce it to my children at the youngest ages. Most of my Berenstain Bears books are HarperCollins or Living Lights from Zonderkidz or from Random House. So I’m delighted to see Worthy also publishing through Ideal’s Children’s Books.

This is definitely recommended.

I have finished penning my review, but now my five year old has come up and discovered the book. She is sitting on the other side of the couch and reading it aloud (she is my budding reader!) She was not in the rom when I read it earlier. She is stopping and commenting throughout on the cubs and their lack of manners. Love it! It spans the ages. Durable enough for the baby, interesting for the toddler/preschooler and perfect early reader level for my kindergarten child. My heart smiles.

    Berenstain Bears are great books.

  • We love the Berenstain Bears and they have such good messages packaged in a way that the kids don’t even realize what they are learning much of the time.
