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.

Our son enjoys this story with it's race cars, colors and rhyming. We have discussed the moral of the story when we read it. We enjoy all Berenstain Bears books and this one is a recent favorite.

As in the fairy tale(s) of The Tortoise and the Hare and The Rabbit and the Turtl (spelled Turtl), Brother Bear races a race patiently, and all turns out well. Teaches a child that winning isn't what's important, but that competing and joining in is.

We got this book from the library and my son, 3 1/2. LOVES IT!!!!! We returned it to the library about 5 weeks ago and he is still quoting the book.

This is a great book to read aloud to all youngsters(infant to 5yrs)or for beginner readers. There's action, a great moral and fun verse.
