this book was one of my favorites as a child. it made me feel that anything was possible. and now, living as i do, crammed into my tiny apartment with several thousand books and an alarming number of stuffed animals and knickknacks for a woman my age...well - i could stand to re-learn the lesson. i long for tidiness, but i need more square footage.

I think that this book is a very good book,because it teaches us to clean up our room. The Berenstain bears' house was very neat and very tidy.Then one day brother bear and sister bear's room was very untidy,because they didn't clean up their toys.Then when mother bear came in to their room she was so angry,because there was a big mess.Then when papa bear came to their room papa bear said,"I think you should keep your toys in boxes,I will make the boxes for you."Then after papa bear finished mak ...more

I loathe the Berenstain bears, i really do, and if you like them, well I loathe you too.

Two decades past bedtime reading, the trauma lingers still, and awful nights spent reading insipid rhymes are a cerebral scar that won't heal, like a tune from 1975 by The Captain and Tenille.

So, new parents, when one of these grim tomes finds its way into your house, you must shred it, stomp it like you would a louse, poison it, kick it like you would a mouse
Organization does a lot for this bear family. Brother and Sister bear argue about cleaning their room. Mama Bear is always cleaning their room, until Papa Bear comes up with a great idea to keep his cubs room clean.

I despise the Berenstain Bears. Hate the drawings and stories are thinly disguised (& idiotic) lessons.
Eirene Ang
Well sometimes, when we were kid or became adult
We just can't clean our room
Some people probably do the same thing
Neither do I, sometimes I do that
If ours room messy
Ours parents telling us to clean it up
But some reason their room messy because they need to work, busy, and more
After you clean your room, try seen from far distance fitting you can see the rooms are clean and nice views
Hope you like it!!

From a very young age, I have always wanted things to have homes. Must be why I reread this one a gazillion times.

If your child is fascinated by The Container Store, this is the book for them.

Mama flips out.

Sigh. It's kind of dumb because it implies that the reason people's rooms are a mess is because they don't have any containers to put things away in, which is not true in most circumstances.

Brother and Sister share a room in the tree house. It's messy. Whenever Mama tells them to clean it up, they sit there and argue instead of cleaning up. So Mama just gets fed up and puts things away herself, and eventually gets so angry that she brings a big box in and threatens to throw everyt

This book was published in 1983 by Random House Publishers and is a book in the First Time Books series. This story begins with a picture of the Bear Family tree house and the house and yard appear to be very well kept. As we look into the home, the house is clean in the inside as well. The only place in the home which wasn't clean was the cubs room. The cubs tried to keep their room clean but when cleaning time came, they argued more often than they cleaned. Often, Mama did more work than the c ...more

Just looking at the title of this, and other Berenstain books of similar vintage, such as The Berenstain Bears Forget Their Manners, The Berenstain Bears and Too Much TV, The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Junk Food, or The Berenstain Bears Learn About Strangers, you know you're in for a lecture. How the gleeful anarchy of Bears in the Night became a propaganda mill for bourgeois Standards and Practices is a sad story that indicts us all. Even the deaths of the original cartoonists can't stop the ...more

I adored this one as a kid: It made organization and being tidy look so fun and beautiful and appealing. Look at that gorgeously maintained cellar, for cryin' out loud! This book marks one of the rare times Mama Bear blows her stack and it's up to Papa Bear to keep the peace and provide a solution, good for him. Anyway, this book legit inspired me to keep my room clean as a kid. Those final pages of everything in its place and all those clearly marked boxes are just things of beauty.

This is a memorable book because when I was younger my sister would read it to me before I went to bed. I am a very clean and organized person which could be explained by reading this so much as a child!

I have read this book at least 20 times and I love it each and every time. Confession time, I am a messy person by nature and every time I read this story I start brainstorming about all the things I want to do to make my space less messy. Every once in a while I actually follow up with the idea and do it. I love reading about sister, brother, mama, and papa bear and there many stories.

I loved the majority of the Berenstain Bears books I read as a child, but this one was always my special favorite. I'm quite sure it was bought to teach me the virtues of having a clean room. I've always liked cleaning up. It looked nice and felt like an accomplishment when the bears had everything put away. This book teaches children lessons while they enjoy reading it. Also a part of the Berenstain Bears series, The Messy Room is a great book for parents at home and for the classroom. These bo ...more

This book describes the messy fast paced life of most children. It is cute and has a good lesson behind it. This book can be used in the classroom to help with student organization. Sometimes classrooms, especially in younger grades, can get really messy because things aren't put back where they are supposed to go, and kids get in such a rush they forget to clean up. So by reading this book and showing that cleaning and organizing can have a positive impact you and your students can start an ann ...more

Also a part of the Berenstain Bears series, The Messy Room is a great book for parents at home and for the classroom. It’s about the two siblings and how they need to clean their room, but instead of working together, they try to do just their part. I’m sure parents really enjoy reading this book to their kids because it is so difficult to get them to clean their room, especially when it is as messy as the siblings! I feel like it would be a motivator to their chores in that aspect. On the other ...more

This is one of the famous Bernstein Bear books and specifically deals with the lesson of organization and keeping everything clean. These stories are always so relatable to many children and what they are experiencing in their lives as they grow up. I always have a messy room and my mother would yell at me to clean it up every weekend when I was a child, so I remember this story relating a lot to me when I read it at that time. Since this and the other books like these all have a life lesson in ...more

Personal Response: The Berenstain Bears books are great! I love how the characters are bears but they act like a human family. The books also have great moral value to them and are relatable to real life.

Purposes: This is a fun and enjoyable read aloud for Kindergarten to 2nd grade. This book could be pulled out and read to the class if students were having trouble getting along or working together. This would also be a great book to pull out in the classroom if the students were having trouble

I grew up with the Berstain Bears, so when I saw this book on the shelf at the library I just had to grab it. The goal I have is to read all of them in order and even the beginning and easy readers. The Berstain Bears were a big part of my childhood, I loved rereading this book. It brought back so many good memories.

I liked the messy room story because it is a story about compromise and team work. After the bears saw what needed to be done they stopped arguing and worked together to make sure t

My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.

I read the book, "The Berenstain Beard and the Messy Room" by Stan Bernenstain. I love all of the Berenstain Bears books. I think these books teach Primary children great life lessons in a simple and kid friendly way. Primary children can relate to this story because all children have had a messy room that their parents yell at them to clean up. We have all heard the saying pick up your clothes off the floor, put your toys in the toy chest, and make your bed. These are the famous words of every ...more

Most people who live in a messy place do not even realize how bad their area is. However once a room is cleaned and optimized you can feel completely different about the space and realize how much more enjoyable it is to be in a clean and efficient room. Children typically keep their rooms messy and parents are constantly asking them to clean up their messes. This book could show children the advantage of cleaning up their own space and hopefully inspire them to clean their room on their own ter ...more

The Berenstain Bears series of books follows a friendly family of bears. I always enjoyed bringing these books home as a child and enjoy reading them to children today. There is Mama and Papa bear, Brother Bear, Sister Bear and Honey Bear. Brother Bear (Small Bear) is always being taught by Papa Bear to learn something constructive but Papa Bear always ends up getting the shaft of the deal as he is always getting banged up somehow. It's quite comical. This story goes through everyday issues of b ...more
