Item description for The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Birthday (First Time Books(R)) by Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain...

When Sister, Brother, and Papa Bear give a big noisy party in honor of Sister Bear's birthday, there are too many guests, too many games, and too much excitement

Publishers Description
Is there such a thing as too much birthday? Poor Sister is overwhelmed by her big, noisy sixth-birthday party. Her sympathetic parents help her realize the true importance of having a birthday in this humorous exercise in moderation for cubs--and parents.  
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 Too Much Birthday (First Time Books(R))?

A Good Lesson for Party Planning  Apr 14, 2008
This is a wonderful book that presents a terrific lesson about not getting too carried away with birthday parties--a big problem these days!
The fuss and commotion and the pressure of an over-the-top party are too much for Sister Bear and she winds up just getting upset about the whole thing. I've seen this happen with real life birthday parties. And it's nice to see an innocent old-fashioned childhood still being depicted in our modern overly sophisticated world. This is another classic in the Berenstain Bears line of books.
Overwhelmed  Dec 1, 2007
Sister Bear is going to turn 6 years old. She is very excited about all the Birthday games, toys, prizes, candy, pony rides, and even a merry-go-round! She and Brother Bear and Papa Bear get everything ready.

The other cubs arrive and they play games and have lots of fun. However, Sister Bear gets overwhelmed by all the excitement and breaks down into tears. She is upset because she got first out on On the Way to Jerusalem game and was humiliated at the Spin the Bottle game.

One cub asks her if she is going to open her presents and that breaks her concentration and she opens gifts. Her tears dry and she finds out much she has grown and improved the past year.
Too Much Birthday  Jun 10, 2007
Why would little kids play "spin the bottle" kissing game at a kid party? Th rest of the book is good except for that part. We now have our own edited version. The Arthur birthday book also plays "spin the bottle". This might have been thought of as an innocent game way back when but it is not in today's society. Maybe they will edit this book for future publications...
kind of disappointing  Dec 27, 2005
as a kid birthday parties were the most exciting thing in the world. So when I got this book I had already been collecting a bunch of berenstein bear books but this one didn't turn out as I expected. Sure I enjoyed reading about how special birthdays are but I was too young to understand why she started crying in the middle of cutting the cake. I would have liked it if they had a part where she's opening all her presents, that to me was the most fascinating thing at that age and I'm sure many kids would have agreed with me.
Berenstain Bears Too Much Birthday  Mar 1, 2003
Imagine my surprise, while reading this to my 5-year-old, to see that Sister Bear, who is turning six, plays "Spin the Bottle" at her birthday party. This is entirely inappropriate for that age level. Avoid this book!
