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

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 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.

I did not like this book because I do not like messy rooms. I also did not like this book because this book had a messy room in it.

This book is a very relatable book for children. More times than not, kids do not like to keep their rooms clean. This book can teach them that it is much more fun to be organized and live in a clean room instead of a dirty one. It has very good illustrations that get the point across as well.

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!!
Thanks..

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.

The Berenstain Bears were a huge part of my childhood and I hope these book are around for a very long time. This book is engaging, funny, and educational all at the same time. It's important to keep children engaged while still getting a message across and all the Berenstain Bears books succeed in this, including this book.

I had almost all of the Berenstain Bears books as a child. I really enjoyed them for a few different reasons. One reason was because of the pictures, they are colorful and they have so many details within them. My mom enjoyed them because they had meaningful lessons in the book. Another cool thing I just noticed was The Berenstain Bears was written by Stan Berenstain, which I think is neat.

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 asked for this book to be read a lot, probably because I was hoping that my sister would get the subliminal message that I wanted our room cleaner! Haha
