Written by Stan & Jan Berenstain

This story is about five Panda Bears and four Berenstain Bears. The Panda Bears move next door to the Berenstain Bears house. Sister and Brother Bear go to meet the Panda Bear children. Papa Bear did not like the Panda family because they were different. At the end of the book, the two families ate together and Papa Bear decided he liked them after all.

When I read the book, I felt excited because some new neighbors had moved next door to the Berenstain Bears house.

My favorite character is sister Bear because she is very nice when she played with the Panda Bears.

My favorite part of the story was when the two families ate together because Papa Bear was not mad any more.

I would recommend this book because it is great! This book teaches you to get to know everyone even if they are different then you.

I think an adult would like this book because Pap Bear gets mad. Also, the story is interesting because the pictures are so colorful.
