A quick, fun, and cute read:) Had me smiling and remembering (though my memories are vague) of this adorable family.

The story is simple but it's not aimed solely towards kids, adults can enjoy it as well:).

The costumes of the characters I loved and Papa Bear's enthusiasm was wonderful... His costume was my favorite.

I won't spoil the story, so just go ahead and pick this one up, happy reading!

Happy 50th anniversary Bernstein Bears!

This should honestly get 3.5 stars but I can't do that so I'll leave it at 3. The whole nightmare bit makes it a spookier book for the kids but at the same time is done in a playful way. The Berenstain Bears books as a whole aren't my favorite but they always touch a nolstagia cord that brings me back to early elementary school. For the overall spookiness and the nolstagia that comes with the series it gets a 3.5 but nothing about it is groundbreaking or especially memorable.

The Berenstain Bears Go On a Ghost walk by Stan and Jan Berenstain is children’s books for ages 4-8 years. It is a Halloween themed story of the series. The story begins with Papa Bear planning the school’s annual Ghost Walk. He is enthusiastic about the task, and he wants to make it the scariest Ghost Walk Bear Country has ever seen. The only problem is, Papa Bear takes it a little too far at times. When he starts to scare the children, Mama Bear reminds him that while it may be all fun and gam ...more

According to Mimi, it is somewhat scary for little kids.
My boys and I have enjoyed so many of the Berenstain Bears stories and the morals they contain within them. One of the things I always appreciate most is the message to think about your actions-- and this is one of those stories. That and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and since my boys are still young, I've had to practice a bit of discretion in my decorating as well (;
Papa Bear is in charge of the Bear Country school's annual Ghost Walk, which is a fundraiser. He has a great time carving pumpkins and constructing scary monsters for the walk until he has a nightmare!

Funny as usual BB situation and a moral to the story: "One person's fun is another person's nightmare!"

Book purchased by me as a present for Logan. Austin, September 2012.
This is a great Halloween book to read to kids to remind them that "one person's fun is another person's nightmare." I think it does a good job of showing the fun side of Halloween but also showing that we must recognize and respect that not all people are the same and they don't like the same things or respond to situations the same way.
Papa Bear almost goes overboard with the frightening Halloween decorations, until he starts having nightmares too. Then he realizes that Mama is right (I love that Mama is always right) when she says that someone's fun can turn into someone else's nightmare.
Like most BB books, this one has a predictable moral. "One person's spooky is another person's nightmare" That said, it is still a fun book, that will help older siblings understand why not everyone will want to hear that scary story.
Read this to three rapt little boys today, which was the best part of this book. I was less enamored with the story than they were. Although I did appreciate the story's take-away: one person's fun is another person's nightmare. So true.
An enjoyable story about Halloween. This would be an excellent story for a family with children of different ages, so the older children may be reminded that what is fun for one person, may be another person's nightmare.
Our first Berenstain Bear book, together! Bobo said he watches the show at grandma's. I would love to start reading this series and am so happy he liked it. I'll start with the spooky ones to keep his interest.
A cute story about Papa and understanding that something you may not think is scary could be very scary to someone else. My daughter - a Berenstain Bears fanatic - loves this book!
My boys (ages 4 & 8) like the Berenstain Bears and their adventures so, of course, they liked the Ghost Walk. This is one for older readers because it has a lot of words.

Although it's after Halloween, our girls love to read stories about Halloween (as long as they aren't too scary!) This is a good story, but not the best from the Berenstains.

Father Bear gets so wrapped up into Halloween that he ends up scaring himself with a bad dream.
I think that it was very AWESOME! And it was also very scary!
We love all berenstain bear books!
