This is a great story to share with your children about the true meaning of Christmas. Papa takes Brother and Sister on a search for a Christmas tree and learns to put his forest friends needs ahead of his want of a perfect tree.

One of my favorite Christmas books! Typical of the series Papa Bear is the buffoon here, waiting until the last minute to search for the 'perfect" tree, his cubs imploring him to settle for a tree from the lot. You'll guess the ending but enjoy the journey anyway. Terrific illustrations.

Christmas time has arrived and the Berenstain Bear family needs a Christmas tree. This was a fun seasonal book to read.

After being completely delighted with the HarperCollins' The Berenstain Bears' Old-Fashioned Christmas las year I started to look into other "big" Berenstain Bears books. Most of my experience from my own youth stuck with the 8x8 early readers. I was excited and intrigued to discover an older Christian Christmas themed big book from Zondervan and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Now I might be wrong, but I believe I saw this book was originally released in the secular market in 1980 through ...more

This is a nice, though a bit long, story about the Berenstain Bears out searching for the perfect Christmas tree. Of course Papa Bear finally learns a lesson that Mama had been trying to tell him all along, but he was too single-minded to pay any attention. This book came with an audiocassette recording of the story and we listened to it a few times in the car, while our girls looked through the pages of the book.

Cute holiday read. It's all about finding the true spirit of the holidays and about giving being more meaningful than receiving (as Papa finds out the hard way, as always). It's also about not cutting down trees that other creatures may reside in just to snazz up the inside of your own tree. Most of the test is in an inconsistent rhyming verse. Every page also is illustrated.

The Berenstain Bears' Christmas Tree by Stan and Jan Berenstain
Christmas, Berenstain Bear style. Papa takes Brother and Sister bear out to look for the perfect tree. Ofcourse, he has waited til the last minute, and now he can't decide. His issue, every tree he chooses is someones home.

Goodness. Was there ever a LONGER WORDIER Christmas story? This took forever to read aloud!

In the end, Papa Bear learns an important lesson--that family and kindness are more important than having a giant Christmas tree.
Jessie
Slightly over-long and has some really weird rhyme schemes, but a fairly cute Christmas story. Papa Bear is kind of a jerk.
Olivia
An older book in the series, this story covers the true meaning of Christmas and yes, that does mean that references to Jesus are made.

I liked the part when Papa bear looks inside the tree and sees tiny snow birds and remembers what Christmas is really about.
