Basically it's about Sister Bear understanding what holidays are about instead of being concerned about what you get. In this case, the Berenstains tie Easter into the concepts of spring, rebirth, and new life.

It's on the wordy side, tiring to read aloud, but at some point a child might enjoy reading it on their own.

This is a typical Berenstain Bears' teaching book--a little wordy for my tastes. It is about the bears looking for Easter eggs and finding real bird eggs in a nest. They discover that the bird eggs are the "real" Easter eggs.

This book was published in 2002 by Random House Publishers and is one of the First Time Books. This story begins as Sister Bear is setting at the table counting her Valentine cards from her classmates. She declares that she wishes every day was a holiday so she could get stuff every day! Mama and Papa worry that Sister Bear only thinks about getting stuff and not about what the holiday is all about. Sister goes to the calendar and learns that Easter is the next big holiday and that night dreams ...more

This is a fun, non-religious book about Easter that emphasizes the message of new life during Springtime. We always enjoy reading books by Stan Berenstain and Jan Berenstain and this story does not disappoint. As always, Papa Bear acts more like a cub and Mama Bear keeps everyone in line. The last sentences are particulary poignant:
"Sister and Brother would never forget those baby birds. And the wonder of Easter and its message of new life would stay with them forever."
Suzanne Moore
Real eggs are better than candy eggs any day! In this story brother & sister bear discover the wonder of new life when they find a nest of Robin hatchlings. Though I am the first to admit I'd rather have a chocolate egg over a hard boiled one. It is so exciting when you're young and anticipate holiday presents and goodies. The young bears begin planning a strategy on how to get the most eggs at the town's Easter Egg Hunt. Mama bear reminds them that the meaning behind every holiday ... Chris ...more

The (fairly) recent Berenstain Bear books are not very much like the Berenstain Bear books that I read as I was growing up. And that is too bad.

This one is a recent book. The moral is about as subtle as a falling anvil, and almost all the fun and humor are missing.

Actual rating: 2.5 stars, but I'll round up for nostalgic value.

Sister loves any holiday where you get gifts or lots of food and Mama tries to show her that there are more important things to care about. It is during the Easter Egg hunt that Brother and Sister see what spring is really about.

Cute Easter book that focus on the concept of Easter representing new life, but leaves out the religious part.

My boys enjoyed this book (ages 8 and 4) even though it was a little "wordy".
Sister and Brother love holidays, they love getting cards, candy and gifts, but when they find real bird eggs on Easter will they learn to appreciate the true meaning of the holiday?

I loved reading these books when I was younger. I think students will be able to enjoy them as well. I like how they find real eggs during an Easter egg hunts.
