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.

    A nightly favorite

    My 3 year old daughter loves the entire Berenstain Bears collection. She loves books but every night for the past 2 weeks this book as been THE ONE to read before bed. She loves the part about your body being a system of organs and connecting the 'systems' to her own body. It is a good book to reinforce the importance of choosing your food wisely - not just because "Mom says so".

    Great teaching tool for my toddler

    We purchased this book just before Halloween to being the discussion of Junk Food and it worked. Don't get me wrong my almost 3 year old still wants junk and candy, but now we talk about healthy nutritious food and the benefits of exercise as well.

    Berenstain Bears-- You have got to love every Berenstain Bears book!

    This book is great because not only is it interesting and easy to read, but it teaches children valuable lessons for life. It is so much fun. (This review also reflects the rest of the Berenstain Bears books.)
