Reviews:

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 print."
