Unfortunately, I own this one. It's not an awful book and I understand the intention is a simple book children can read when they're at a beginning level. But it's not really a very interesting read. And, sadly, when it was time to return it to the library with our other haul of books I couldn't find it. I kept renewing the book until I finally decided it was a goner and I'd find it one day while moving. So I paid $15 for an uninteresting beginning reader book that I knew I would eventually find ...more

Pretty good early reader book. Not just about playing and coaching t-ball, but also about how to teach and lead younger athletes. You will enjoy the book more if you know the basics about t-ball (or baseball), namely such things as where 1st base is.

Minor whine about the listed book description: It ends with, "Will Brother Bear and Sister Bear be able to put together a winning team?" The answer is, "Yes! They will have one winning team and one loosing team, since they are jointly coaching both t

In general, this book is very cute and a great read for younger kids and their parents. In the book "The Berenstain Bears Play T-Ball" brother bear and sister bear try to teach the younger bears how to play T-Ball. The younger beats really have no clue how to play, and the older bears are trying to put together a winning team. I would recommend this to K-4th grade readers that enjoy animals or even sport books. It is a very simple read and is a pretty short book. I liked this book because of the ...more

I just have always loved the Berenstain Bears books. I grew up reading them and have discovered that more books have joined them then I read as a kid. My daughter is starting to fall in love with these books. This one is one that she read to me as it is a I can read book. It is a good book about how to really teach someone something that you love and know all about. It also shows the true meaning behind the word coach. It is just an adorable read for a little one.

A sister and brother teach the other bears how to play T-ball. They played tag. The Cardinals and the Bluebirds played T-ball. They were playing tag. The Bluebird team won. The Bluebird team got 27 and the Cardinals got 26. I learned that jumping on your hat does not make people learn. -Felicity

Brother and Sister Bear are coaches for a t-ball team. They don't realize that the little kids doesn't understand ball language and so get confused at their trying to teach them. When they realize that coaches are like teachers and need to have patience and teach before they can have fun then everyone learns and has fun in the end.

My boys (ages 4 & 8) love going on adventures with the Berenstain Bears. My 4-year-old doesn't know how to play baseball or t-ball so I had to do a lot of explaining in this book.
