MultiMedia Merchandising, May 1995
"This title is the first in a Living Books series based on
Stan and Jan Berenstain's best- selling children's book. It helps 3 to 8 year
olds understand conflict and offers guidance to help them get along with their
siblings and friends. This disc, which runs in English or Spanish, comes with a
copy of the original book and a parents' handbook that features activities
designed to extend the product's value beyond the computer."
Multimedia World, September 1995
"Here are two bear-themed storybooks designed to help
children learn to read in a fun and entertaining enviornment. While the discs
have similar approaches - highlighting the story's words while a voice-over
narrates - each has a profoundly different look, feel, and effect. Living
Books' Berenstain Bears Get in a Fight tells the story of a brother and
sister who get into a terrible row. Using Saturday-morning cartoon animation,
the disc offers their quarrel as a gentle moral lesson. P.B. Bear's Birthday Party brings us an
adorable animated teddy bear who celebrates his birthday with a crew of cute
playmates. The CD's innovative design, which animates stuffed animals, should
appeal to toddlers. Both titles have lots of fun clickables, but Berenstain
Bears doesn't offer as much playing time or interactivity as P.B.
Bear, which presents a number of different learning games and storytelling
options. Berenstain Bears has some great animation, but it's better as a
bedtime story than as a true educational aid."
CD-ROM Today, September 1995
"This title does add a few interesting cinematic elements ot
the Living Books formula. Two of the pages use a porthole illustration window
that provides visual transitions from one scene to another. Also, about half of
the animations on each page serve to amplify the emotional impact of the scene,
which is much more than in previous titles in this series."
"On the whole, this title does a great job of exploiting
what can be a limitation of the medium: sound loops. Several of the pages have
a repetitive sound track of the two kids bickering, demonstrating convincingly
that it's irritating to listen to such endless bad-tempered back-and-forth.
This soundtrack teaches by example far more subtly than what can be achieved in
