“Bear Country is a beautiful place. Find the following objects in the picture,” the instructions state in Jan and Mike Berenstain’s book, The Berenstain Bears Bear Country Fun Sticker & Activity Book.
~ What ~
Part of the Berenstain Bears / Living Lights series, this unnumbered thirty-two-page oversized paperback targets children four to eight years old, especially those that like games, puzzles, and activities of the well-known family of bears. Included at the back of the book are over fifty reusable stickers.
Set up as an activity book, the pages are filled with projects related to the Berenstain bear family. There are mazes, counting, patterns, alphabet games, finding objects, following lines, crossword and word puzzles, spotting differences, matching seasons, key coding, connect the dots, coloring, and attaching stickers.
~ Why ~
This is a fun activity book for young ones as there are so many different things to do. I like the colorful designs and how the Berenstain Bear family members are all shown. God and Jesus are mentioned once, and a Bible verse is quoted.
~ Why Not ~
With the book aimed at beginner to early readers, those in the four-to-five year age bracket may not know how to do some of the tasks regarding crosswords or key coding. Others may or may not like the inferences to God that are known for the series. The stickers are a little hard to remove although they state they are reusable.
~ Who ~
Since Stan and Jan passed away years ago, their son Mike continues to follow in his parents’ footsteps with the Berenstain Bear series and products. He lives in Pennsylvania.
~ Wish ~
With some of the more complicated activities, the book should be for six to eight-year-olds. I wish the stickers were of better quality. It would have been nice to state the Bible verse came from the Gospels.
~ Want ~
If your child likes the Berenstain Bears series, he or she will be creatively occupied with this activity book. While a four-year-old may want to play with the stickers and color, older children will enjoy the more complex games and puzzles.
