Every week I write about the books that we read for my son. He is currently 4 years old and loves a good book! I am not a professional book and illustration reviewer or critic, but I can write about the book, what I think about it, and how our son reacted to it.

About the Author:
Mike Berenstain is continuing the legacy of Stan and Jan Berenstain who started the Berenstain Bears series. Mike writes and illustrates the books. According to the official Berenstain Bears website, “He lives and works in the rolling countryside of Eastern Pennsylvania–a place that looks very much like Berenstain Bear Country.”

“The Berenstain Bears Play Football” is a fun family story about playing a sport outside the home, instead of just watching it on TV.
Football is such a big sport in the United States that watching the Superbowl on TV has become a big family event. In the Bear Country, the Berenstain Bears were supposed to watch the Grizzly Bowl, which is the equivalent of the Superbowl in their world.
The story even takes a jab at the air time that commentators and ads receive. When the cubs got bored waiting for the game to start, they decided to play a game instead. What better game to play than Football?
