Book Review: The Berenstain Bears and the Nerdy Nephew by Stan Berenstain and Jan Berenstain
The Berenstain Bears and the Nerdy Nephew by Stan and Jan Berenstain is about a new student named Ferdy Factual who is a stuck up know it all. He is rude to Brother & Sister no matter how nice they are to him. When other students begin to bully Ferdy, he realizes he actually needs friends like Brother & Sister.
As a child, I loved reading picture books with some of my favorite stories being part of The Berenstain Bears books by Stan and Jan Berenstain. I never knew that Stan & Jan Berenstain had made their famous books into chapter books as well. It wasn't until BookBub.com sent me an email about a bundle of these chapter books being on sale that I knew of them. As a side note, I always thought the books were The Berenstein Bears. Boy was I surprised to learn I was wrong!
The Berenstain Bears and the Nerdy Nephew is a great chapter book for younger children just starting out to read . . . I'd recommend it for six to eight year old kids. It was super cute and taught a great lesson about bullying. I love the fact that Stan and Jan Berenstain write books that have teachable situations that are relatable to kids without it being condescending to their audience. For such a short book, the authors did a great job in character development that you don't always see in children's books. I gave it four out of five stars. If you loved this book, I'd recommend Miss Nelson is Missing! by Harry Allard.
