Book Review


This book follows the adventure of the Berenstein Bear family as they visit Grizzly Gramps and Gran for the holidays. When they get there, the TV is unplugged and the bear cubs get to experience an old-fashioned Christmas. The cubs listen to the player piano, cut down their own Christmas tree from the forest, enjoy a home cooked feast, listen to carolers, and go for a sleigh ride before getting the cookies, milk, and stockings ready for Christmas Eve. The book ends with the Bear family opening presents and celebrating Christmas together.
