The Berenstain Bears and the Prize Pumpkin
by Stan and Jan Berenstain
I have to admit that even though Amber has long outgrown them, I still enjoy a visit to Bear Country occasionally. Papa Bear has grown a big pumpkin and is entering it into the annual contest during Bear Country Thanksgiving Festival. Sadly it doesn’t win, but the Bear family learns a lesson about the true spirit of the holiday and about all they have to be thankful for.
Papa Bear acts like a kid himself a lot of the time, this time getting so wrapped up in winning and his pumpkin that he forgets about everything else. He even trespasses on a neighbor’s farm to get at peak at “The Monster,” a rival pumpkin. (Can pumpkins be rivals?) So the lesson learned is for him too, not just the cubs.
It’s cute and just what I expected from a Berenstain Bears story.
