Is it a good idea to teach children to reduce, reuse, recycle, and not to litter? Absolutely. However, I still don't like this book because it teaches that adults are idiots (especially papa, but mama is smart) and don't realize the importance of not polluting.

Also, while it is definitely good to recycle and whatnot, we still are going to cause damage to the planet because everybody does have garbage every week and it has to go some where, and that should be acknowledged.
Reasons I don't like this book:
1. Parents/adults are the problem and the teachers need to teach the kids this;
2. The bully comes up with the idea to "lean" on anybody who doesn't cooperate with the no pollution plan; and
3. Papa Bear's bad dream and illustrations of it weren't necessary or appropriate for the storyline or the intended audience of this book.

Keeping our planet clean is a hard, but important job. Educating our students about what to do to help keep pollution under control is paramount. I would share this book before we start a unit on pollution. The book includes some important vocabulary which would be a great start to this lesson, for example, "ecology," "conservation," and "recycle" are some words that would be good to bring up and ask students what they think they mean. I would love to have students create signs and banners and t...more

This popular series features a fun story that discusses environmental issues (i.e. pollution) and the importance of caring for our environment. The connection to habitats of plants and animals is made through the story’s animal characters (i.e. bears). After reading the story, a large group discussion can be held to talk about how the Berenstein Bears solved an environmental issue (i.e. pollution, littering) in their community and how this can be connected to environmental issue...more
One day Papa Bear reads an article written by Professor Actual Factual talking about pollution in Bear County. To Papa it seems like to much fuss is made over pollution and doesn't feel its a problem in their small town. Brother and Sister Bear meet with the Professor and learn how serious the problem really is. Together they come up with a way to get the message out to kids, who can then hopefully be the voice of reason to their parents.
When Bear Country's cubs
learn pollution's a fact,
they help grownups learn
to clean up their act.

Brother and Sister learn that there is a pollution problem and organize the other cubs to help raise awareness.

This is a great book to read to the students during our science unit when we are discussing saving the Earth. It uses fictional characters to share what people can do not to pollute so that our Earth can be saved!

This is a good book to read to the youngers ones. I'm sure pollution is an objective in science and this will be a good book to read for it.
Fantastic for parents who want their children to grow up into a world of activism.
The Berenstain Bears teach children what they can do to protect the environment.
Great series of books that teach little ones important lessons.
Brother and Sister learn about the dangers of pollution.
good enough--little long winded for my taste
