Brother and Sister Bear get to go trick-or-treating on their own for the first time. They know there's one place in the neighborhood they won't go for treats - the house of Miz McGrizz. They think she's a witch, even though Mama Bear warns the children that appearances can be deceiving.The Berenstain Bears "First Time Books" were all among my favorites as a young child/early reader. I remember being too young to read and staying up at night under the covers with a flashlight just looking at the pictures and imagining the story. Once I could read, these were among the books I read over and over again. As an adult, some parts of the book make me laugh a little (i.e., the main characters are named Mama Bear, Papa Bear, Brother Bear, Sister Bear -- really? That was as imaginative as the authors could get?). The books also come across now as perhaps overly preachy and moralistic, although I think I learned as much (if not more) about manners and good behavior from the Berenstain Bears books than the adults in my life. This particular title is still relevant in today's world where bullying is a major issue in part because children aren't learning to look beyond appearances and finding out the "different" kids aren't as different as they think.
