Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
In this big, sturdy board book version of a deliciously shivery, easy-to-read classic Berenstain Bears Bright and Early Book, three brave little bears explore the inside of a mysterious old tree and go into, up, through, over, down, and out. Simple rhyming text teaches the concept of directions as  beginning readers enjoy a story and illustrations filled with thrills and chills of the gentlest kind.
 
Over the course of fifty years, Stan and Jan Berenstain wrote and illustrated hundreds of books about the Berenstain Bears in dozens of formats, from board books to beginning readers. Some of the most enduring are the stories in the groundbreaking Bright and Early Books and Beginner Books series.

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".  

Over 50 children's books later, Stan and Jan still plan all of their books together -- both write the stories, and both write the pictures.  They live outside of Philadelphia in the country.

    This is the favorite story of my children and the children that I cared for in my home daycare. Now, my kids read it to their kids and I want to get it on my Nook Color to read to them when they are at my house!

    Too much white space

    The iPad app for Nook gives tiny pictures and too much white space and you need to read it in portrait to get words and pics on the same page. Clearly you haven't worked out this format yet. Very very disappointed.

    Still the Same...

    I am 35 and loved this book as a kid. My three-year-old daughter absolutely loves this book. We were so glad it was still in print.

    A Scary Story

    The little Bears wanted to go into the spooky old tree. The girl used the rope to grab all of them up. Inside the tree were alligators. They had wanted to see what it was like in the tree, and all went home in the end. I like spooky stories.

    Wonderful!

    This is probably one of the BEST stories for the REALLY young ones. I remember reading it with my mom when I was 4/5, over & over & over until I knew each phrase by heart, before I even knew what the words meant, saying 'LESLEY DARE!' instead of 'Yes, they dare!' Now that i have my own little one, I realize some of the semantics of why I may have liked it so much, and why she now does: Very big pictures to describe to the little one, very graphic, I let her point out where the bats & monsters are...
