The Berenstain Bear books were one of my favorite books growing up. I grew up with a little brother in a troubled family and our escape was books. I use to read these to my brother at night before bed(he didn't learn to read till fifth grade), so this was our us time. I have continued this tradition with my daughter. I read to her every night, sometimes a repeat of The Berenstain Bears(the older versions I grew up on), or other stories. She loves Dracula and Frankenstein. So reading this book wa ...more

I read the book, "The Berenstain Bears on the Job" by Stan Berenstain. This is a great book to teach Primary children they can get jobs that help others on in this case help the elderly. You don't have to of age to get a job helping others. I love how this book takes Brother and Sister bear and they help out one of their neighbors instead of helping out Mom or Papa bear. It shows that helping others can make a difference on you as a person and on the person you are helping. This is a great story ...more

I didn't think this one was as interesting as most of the other Berenstain Bears books I've read, but I think kids would still like it and it could be a good lead-in to a discussion about different jobs and what kids want to be when they grow up.

Cute book I read with my 4yo. Love that the book opens with a scripture (Matthew 5:16) and talks about using your God given talents to help you decide what you can be "when you grown up."

This fictional narrative is a part of a series that cover the adventures of two young bears. In this particular story, the sibling bears tour their community to see what types of jobs individuals hold and to discover what job would be right for them. They visit firefighters, police bears, bank tellers, bakers, scientists, and other working members of their community. As a teacher, I could use this text to teach about various jobs that are within the community. It is also a rhyming book so I coul ...more
Grade Levels: P-K
* A good reading center/class library book that can be used during the first few weeks of school (or any time of the school year really) for young readers to introduce them to different occupations that they can have when they become older
* Have a class "career day", and ask students to dress up as someone that they would like to be when they become older (e.g. doctor, firefighter, police officer, sports player).

This book is a cute book allowing for students to know what surrounds them in their community. It also can give encouragment that they can be whatever they want to be when they grow up. I also like that this book gives them confidence to choose things that they may want to be even if others think it silly. I would keep this in my classroom for free reading.
Not so much a story book this time around, this one was more fact-based and a little drier. Not a favourite!
