Reviews - What do customers think about The Berenstain Bears in the Dark (First Time Books(R))?

Berenstain Bears in the dark  Sep 24, 2005
My kids love berenstain bears they tackle just about every issue a kid would go through and gives them encouragement and useful ways to handle the issue. In the dark is no exception my daughter liked the fact that others get scared too andThey encouraged her to face her fears. It even had a funny ending. Just as good as the Tv show. Good for 1st and 2nd level readers. Great to read to any age.
A very cute, teaching book  Feb 28, 2005
We got this book as part of a set and it's just great. I have to read this one over and over again but I don't mind because it definitely has a good lesson. When brother bear takes out a mystery book to read from the library, sister gets a little scared when he reads part of it to her. He then wails like the cave in the story once they get in bed just to torment her but receives his just reward when sister can't go to sleep without the light on. So, the whole family is up with sister and quite "sleepy-eyed" in the morning. Papa bear sets up his old nightlight for sister who then gets her chance for revenge when she tells brother she wished the story ended with a spooky monstoer and hangs over the edge of the top bunkbed and makes a scary face at him! Brother has a little trouble sleeping after that and decides that mysteries are exactly his "thing" just then. It's fun to read for adults, all of us who remember hanging over the edge of the top bunk to scare a sibling below. I really laughed when I read that. Pretty funny stuff, especially since I did that too! My little one loves this book and it really does help explain how to not let shadows scare you. Great book, great find.
The Berenstain Bears In The Dark  Oct 3, 2003
This book is about brother bear and sister bear going to the library to get some books. When they arrived home it was reading time and brother bear scared sister bear reading her his scary book he checked out. That night sister bear couldn't fall asleep because she was scared so papa bear gave her a nightlight. That helped her fall asleep and she wasn't scared of the dark anymore. The lesson this book teaches is to not be afraid of the dark. It's a good book and I recommend it for children ages 3-10.
Great Book!  Dec 20, 2002
I loved this book, expecially because of the way its wrote. Classic dont be scared its all imaginary book. Besides the Berenstain Bears are completely awesome children stories and Teach little kids a nice lesson while decorating their minds with bright pictures.
A review of The IN THE DARK  Dec 16, 2001
I think this book is a pretty good book for people that like to read to young children, or just for anytime reading. This book features all of our favorite Berenstain Bears characters. Mama bear, Papa bear, Brother and Sister bear all play important parts in this book. In it, sister is read a scary book by brother and then is afraid of the dark, but will the scarer become the scaree?
