The Berenstain Bears and the Week at Grandma's is a good book for little ones worried about time away from mom and dad. The cubs have a great time at their grandparent's and realize that they can learn so much from those older and wiser than themselves. They stay active and have a very positive experience. The illustrations are very good and help tell the story. I recommend the book. ( )

This book sends the message that you should never look down on a experience and make the most fun of any experience as you can. Book also suggest that a person should not, and will not ever stop learning! Chronicles the lessons and leisure of a weekend with the bear's grandparents. ( )

I was fortunate to be able to spend a lot of time with my grandparents as a child and to adore visiting them, so I was never fully able to relate to this story in which the children feel a bit apprehensive about spending their first week alone with Gramps and Gran. However, I can understand how children in different circumstances might appreciate it more. And the story does a great job of showing that while the grandparents may fit into certain "old people" stereotypes, they are still quite young and interesting for their age. Kids may also be intrigued by some of the activities portrayed in the story, like building a ship in a bottle. The story has something enjoyable for most readers, even if their circumstances are different than the Berenstain family's. ( )
