Meet the Author

Stan and Jan Berenstain were both born in 1923 in Philadelphia.  They didn't know each other as children, but met later at school, at the Philadelphia College of Art.  They liked each other right away, and found out that the both enjoyed the same kinds of books, plays, music and art.  During World War II, Stan was a medical assistant in the Army, and Jan worked in an airplane factory.  When the war was over, they got married and began to work together as artists and writers, primarily drawing cartoons for popular magazines.  After having their two sons Leo and Michael, the Berenstains decided to write some funny children's books that their children and other children could read and enjoy.  Their first published children's book was called The Big Honey Hunt.  It was about a family of bears, who later became known as the "Berenstain Bears."  

Stan and Jan planned all of their books together. They both wrote the stories and created the pictures.  They continued to live outside of Philadelphia in the country.  There are now over 300 Berenstain Bears books.

Papa gets in so much trouble when tries to teach safety rules to his son. My family's favorite line is: you proved it dad. Even a twig can be bad!

My daughter loves for me to read this book to her almost every night. She loves the characters in the bear family. This book teaches how important it is to be careful even when a person is on vacation.

This is the Berenstain Bears, Old School style! I had totally forgotten about this book, but the second I picked it up to peruse it for my son (5 years old), totally excited me to be able to share this piece of my childhood with him. The more recent books seem to have a 'down home country twang' to them in how many of them reference the '...home at the end of the sunny dirt road...', but this one, this is from a different time period, and you can tell. The classic drawing, the rhyming narrative, no Sister Bear. This is a classic... and it teaches kids a valuable lesson: Learn from others mistakes, even your parents.
