Batter up! When baseball fever hits Bear Country, Papa Bear wants to turn Brother Bear into a star player—but what about Sister Bear?
Little League is coming to Bear Country! It’s enough to wake Papa Bear from his spring snooze in the hammock. Mama Bear knows there’s no stopping him as Papa races up to the attic and gets down his old bat, ball, and glove to coach the next Hall of Famer: Brother Bear. But the cub would rather play with his friends. Who wants to practice day and night? Isn’t baseball supposed to be fun?
Will Papa Bear put together a winning team and make Brother Bear the star player? And will Sister Bear ever get her turn at bat?

About The Author
Stan Berenstain (1923–2005) and Jan Berenstain (1923–2012) were a husband-and-wife cartooning team best known for creating the internationally beloved Berenstain Bears. Both born in Philadelphia, they met on the first day of art school, and were married after World War II. Inspired by their children’s love for Dr. Seuss, the Berenstains created a cartoon version of their own family, and with The Big Honey Hunt (1962) began a series that would stretch to more than two hundred volumes.
Starring Papa Bear, Mama Bear, Sister Bear, and Brother Bear, the books quickly became popular for their evocative drawings and simple explanations of wholesome themes. The stories sold more than 200 million copies worldwide and have been adapted as movies, television shows, and amusement park attractions. The Berenstains’ younger son, Mike, has overseen the series since his parents passed away, ensuring that it will continue to be popular with each new generation of young readers.
