Overview Lizzy Bruin's slumber party becomes even wilder when Too-Tall Grizzly and his friends decide to attend uninvited
Publishers Description Sister Bear's first slumber party at Lizzy Bruin's gets out of hand with pillow fighting and soda squirting--and then Brother Bear and Cousin Freddy show up. Lizzy's parents have no choice but to end the party, and Brother and Sister receive a valuable lesson in behaving away from home.
Stan and Jan Berenstain were both born in 1923 in Philadelphia. They didn't know each other as children, but met later at school, at the Philadelphia College of Art. They liked each other right away, and found out that the both enjoyed the same kinds of books, plays, music and art. During World War II, Stan was a medical assistant in the Army, and Jan worked in an airplane factory. When the war was over, they got married and began to work together as artists and writers, primarily drawing cartoons for popular magazines. After having their two sons Leo and Michael, the Berenstains decided to write some funny children's books that their children and other children could read and enjoy. Their first published children's book was called The Big Honey Hunt . It was about a family of bears, who later became known as the "Berenstain Bears".
Over 50 children's books later, Stan and Jan still plan all of their books together -- both write the stories, and both write the pictures. They live outside of Philadelphia in the country.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Berenstain Bears and the Slumber Party (First Time Books(R))?
Great book, uses word "stupid" Mar 5, 2006
Great book just like all the other Berenstain Bears books with lots of lessons about life. We have at least a dozen of these books and most are from the First Time Books series. My only warning is that one of the "bad" bears calls another one "stupid". While this may have been done for effect and I may be overreacting, I believe it is unnecessary. I don't want my kids thinking it is an OK word to use because it is in a book even if I tell them it is not nice. You can just not read the word... until your kids start reading. Maybe you can just buy it with one of the other Berenstain Bears books that deal with name calling like "Berenstain Bears Forget Their Manners" or "Berenstain Bears and the In-Crowd"
Hello Feb 21, 2001
This was a pretty good book. It was good for several reasons and they are it was realistic, it taught a lesson, and it was funny. The first reason why this was a good book because it was realistic. To this very day people are still having wild slumber parties with unexpected guests. Next, this was a good book because it taught a lesson. In the end Lizzie Bruin learns that she shouldn't have had a slumber party without her parent's permission. Finally, this was a good book because it was funny. I found It was hilarious that little kids had police come because they had a out of control party. In conclusion, this was a good book.
An OK Book Jun 21, 2000
This book is pretty good. First, Sister Bear gets invited to a slumber party at her friend Lizzy's house. She tells her that only a few friends will be over.It turns out, many, many more kids come to Lizzy's slumber party. The slumber party turns into a popcorn throwing, soda-spilling mess because Lizzy's parents weren't home during the slumber party.The neighbors call the police since so much noise is coming from Lizzy's house and everyone has to go home.In the end, Sister Bear learns more about responsibility and her parents do too. I liked this book. It teaches a good lesson but it's also fun.
