    If you've been looking for a Berenstain bear book that references the loss of life in the Civil War, this is the book for you. I will look for other ways to bring up the subject of death. Also, Mama and Papa bear show Brother and Sister "Honeymoon Falls" where they went on their honeymoon. Sister asks why she doesn't remember taking that conversation, and Brother tells her she wasn't born. So, if you feel like talking about birth and death juxtaposed with a family vacation, have fun with this.

    Love this book about car trips. The cubs are not too excited at first, but have fun and learn a lot from the different sites they visit. The book emphasizes the beauty of nature and the importance of history. Hints at real sites and covers lots of elements of a road trip (from the planning, to the driving, and all the stops along the way). We purchased this book on our trip to South Dakota in August of 2016.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. 6 yo: I liked how the kids had fun at the end of the book. I didn’t like when the cubs were upset at the beginning. Parent: There’s a weird section with a “war” re-enactment and a gravestone site, not sure if it’s appropriate for all, you know your kid, they talk about “shooting” at each other.

    Not sure why this book is titled “Too Much Car Trip” when everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves literally the entire time. Okay wait. I stand corrected - the cubs hated the first page of the car ride.

    This has lots of words, but it's a nice story about the bears gong on vacation and the little cubs learning to appreciate a good car road trip. Illustrations are your typical illustrations you see in the Berenstain Bears books.

    Mama and Papa decide the family needs to go on a good ol’ fashioned road trip to educate Brother and Sister on the history of Bear Country. Activities include a Civil War reenactment and viewing “Mount Grizzmore.” Meaning there was once slavery in Bear Country. Need I say more?

    Nope, apparently there's no such thing as too much car trip. A pretty misleading title, as nobody has too much of the car trip. I was really expecting it to be about Mama and Papa bear realizing that sometimes pushing everybody to do too many things on a long car trip is a bad idea, but no. The kids have a great time, despite their initial dislike of the idea. Basically, Mama and Papa are planning a road trip with the kids, but not the baby.

The kids have a great time, despite their initial dislike of the idea. Basically, Mama and Papa are planning a road trip with the kids, but not the baby. The kids think it's going to be super boring and they don't want to go. At first they are determined to be bored. Then they see a waterfall and think, “Oh, this is pretty cool!” And then they're interested for the rest of the trip. They see some re-enactors fighting a war that are depicted as if they are Union and Confederate soldiers. The kids ask why the war happened, and are told, “Countries don't just happen. Folks have to make them happen, and sometimes there's trouble.” And there's about eight gravestones where some people actually died in the battle. Maybe Bear Country actually seceded from the rest of the United States. And I'm not sure what they're trying to say with Bear Country's version of Mount Rushmore, which only has three faces. Jefferson seems to be the one missing. An anti-adultery message, perhaps? There was other stuff that they did, but they enjoyed the car trip. And that's it. The end. The best part: “'If you were here on your honeymoon, how come I don't remember it?' Mama and Papa just looked at each other as Brother whispered, 'We weren't even born yet, silly!' That gave Sister something to think about on the next leg of the car trip.” For more children's book reviews, check out my site at http://www.drttmk.com.

    It was funny that while I read this to my babygirl (and got the attention of two of my older kids) I was able to tell them about several of the many (and lawda mercy I mean many) road trips I had to take as a kid. It was so much fun recalling many of the fun trips to places like seeing Niagara Falls being lit up with lights at night down to watching the sunrise over the Grand Canyon, down to watching an egg fry on a rock just to prove a point. I just can't wrap my head around how adults can look It was funny that while I read this to my babygirl (and got the attention of two of my older kids) I was able to tell them about several of the many (and lawda mercy I mean many) road trips I had to take as a kid.

I just can't wrap my head around how adults can look a baby in the eyes and say you have more important things to be doing. There isn't anything more important than spending time with ya baby. One day you WILL miss this

    This is a more complex without being a chapter book, book. The cubs are wanting to go various place for vacation but their parents feel they are old enough to go on a road trip to see the various Historical sites in bear country. The author incorporates the 'real' Mt Rushmore, Niagara falls, Civil War reenactments and a few other real things into the bear country History. So if you read this with your child it gives you a lead to teach your children about the real places. The bear cubs realize h This is a more complex without being a chapter book, book.

    This book was cute. It was more like a classic BB book, making a sneakily good point about the potential joys of road trips and learning more about your national monuments, parks, and history. Plus, it comes with a nifty little car travel bingo game inside, so kids can not only read on a trip how much fun a trip can be, but can then play the game, like Brother and Sister Bear set the example for. Definitely worth a read for kids and parents.

    This was one of the better books with Brother and Sister not being impressed at the idea of a car trip holiday but as they see all the historical and scenic sights around Bear Country, they start to change their mind and enjoy the family holiday. I liked the grumpy bear faces and bored looks at the start of the book along with the Bear versions of American history.

    Brother and Sister Bear want to go vacation to an amusement park or water park, but Mama and Papa take them on a big car trip where they see great waterfalls, battlefields and soldiers' graves, and heroes of Bear Country carved into the side of a mountain. Parents will love this one, especially those like me who want their kids to learn about history.

    I read this to a mix of ages (3-8). The older kids had fun pointing out the sites that the bears visit, which actually exist in the USA. The younger ones liked the story and were really excited to think these places were real.
