Berenstain Bears: Tales From the Tree House, Vol 3
(2-Disc DVD / G / 2020 / PBS Kids)
Overview: It's time for Bear Country adventures with Brother and Sister Bear in their 'Tree House Tales, Volume 3' - which contains 28 more stories from the beloved animated series.
DVD Verdict: For those not in the know, 'The Berenstain Bears' began as a children's literature franchise created by Stan and Jan Berenstain and continued by their son, Mike Berenstain; who assumed partial authorship in 2002, and full authorship in 2012 following Jan's death.
The books feature a family of anthropomorphic grizzly bears who generally learn a moral or safety-related lesson in the course of each story.
Indeed, since the 1962 debut of the first Berenstain Bears book, The Big Honey Hunt, the series has grown to over 300 titles, which have sold approximately 260 million copies in 23 languages.
Of course, as we know, 'The Berenstain Bears' franchise has also expanded well beyond the books, encompassing two television series and a wide variety of other products and licenses.
While enjoying decades of popularity and receiving numerous awards, the series has been applauded for portraying many tales of bravery, caring for others, and learning responsibility well beyond The Bears' young years.
Furthermore, 'The Berenstain Bears' is sensibly written to appeal to younger children (preschool and kindergarten age) and teach them values at the same time.
In this age of redundant stupidity in entertainment, parents need a show like this one to help illustrate how fair life should be, and give a firm footing to children, not overwhelm them with glitz, glam and gloss.
By keeping plots simple and allowing children to follow along at their level, this show simply teaches children how to be fair, consider other's feelings and have good sportsmanship.
These are core values which are not being taught to children at daycare dumps or underfunded public schools, in my humble opinion.
Here in 'The Berenstain Bears: Tales From the Tree House, Volume 3' we get an incredible 5+ hours of more tales encompassing 28 singular episodes!
And because these fun-filled tales straight from the family tree house cover important topics including patience, making new friends, and being unique, they are good, honest and solid viewing for all your children.
When Sister must write about a bear she admires the most for a school project, she quickly learns just how many awards and trophies Grizzly Gran won in her younger years!
Then, the cubs are excited about going on a family trip – until they find out the destination isn't Grizzlyland, but instead a tour of Bear Country's national parks!
Finally, the cubs are sad when they hear that their friends down the street are moving away. Brother and Sister learn about the positive side of moving - new adventures and new friends!
This value-packed DVD collection covers important topics including compromising, helping those in need, and much more! This is a Full Screen Presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
