It's Brother Bear's birthday and when he receives his new racing bike from Mama and Papa, Sister is terribly jealous. Mama Bear tells her that she gets to have Brother's old bike.

Sister has a dream about the Green-Eyed Monster convincing her to ride Brother's new bike and she accidentally crashes and bre ...more

I personally love this book. I was thinking about purchasing it as a gift for my little cousin who actually does have "the green eyed monster" over me owning the show accurate Toys R Us Exclusive Collector Series of Princess Celestia from My Little Pony.

My daughter won't put this book down. I read it five times the first day. Anyhow, I love the green-eyed monster concept. I also liked that Papa bear suffered from it too, showing adults are subject to the same emotions and dilemas as children.

I loved finding a way to explain terms such as envy and jealousy in ways my daughter could relate too. I talked to her about how that monster can get in our hearts but that we can change our hearts from wanting what we don't have to being happy for what an

The Berenstain Bears and the Green-Eyed Monster by Stan and Jan Berenstain
This one is about the "Green-Eyed Monster," jealousy or envy. Brother Bear get the shiniest new bike for his birthday. Sister get very jealous, and wanted to ride it, even though she's too small. She later has a nightmare, where the green-eyed monster, tells her she needs to show everyone, she is big enough to ride it.

This one is very popular with the toddler set. I think they can understand where Sister is coming from, and love the green monsters.

I like that the plot is a bit different from the TV version of the same story, which makes a teachable moment about movie adaptations. Hey, it's never too early to make the argument for reading the book before seeing the movie.

Great book, with a great message, for not only kids but adults. My kids love this book. They wanted to read it because it was about a "monster". But once we read the book a couple times through they started to understand the meaning. Everyone parents should read this book to their kid to teach them to be grateful for what they do that.

I used to read these with my parents all the bloody time! Most of them were so loved that they had all fallen apart. This one was an exception because I got this one when I was much older. I had outgrown the reading level, but I hadn't outgrown the love of these characters.
Angela
Loved this book! Momma bear did an excellent job in discussing jealousy and envy with her daughter. I also thought it was great how Poppa bear became jealous of his friend and Sister bear taught him a lesson.

Brother and Sister Bear find out how to deal with jealousy. This book is quite funny and you get to see that the adults are just as prone to jealousy as the children are.
Rachel
The green eyed monster refers to being greedy. I would use this book to discuss being greedy and the issues with it. Students might get a kick out of the illustrations also.

All of my kids have enjoyed the Berenstain bears books. This one was no different. Sister learns about the Green-eyed monster (being jealous) and overcomes it.
Dawn Van Ness
Stan Bernstein gives us excellent books to introduce or reinforce morals and productive behavior: excellent source of pro-social behavior.
Adrienne
That little green-eyed monster version of Sister Bear is creepy! If I were a kid, that thing would give me nightmares!
Rebecca (everyday reader)
