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.

    LOVE THIS BOOK

    We have read it a couple of times, my three year old gets up and walks around because it is a long story for him to sit through but he still listens. I love this series and how it deals with real life issues that all parents encounter - a must buy for parents

    great for my 5 year old

    My 5 year old son loves this book. It's a good way to teach lessons that young minds don't always understand when Moms and Dads try to explain.

    Helps prevent spoilt brats

    All parents have experienced taking kids to the store and hearing from them, 'I want this' and 'I want that.' This book is good for both kids and parents who go thru this daily and thensome. It also teaches kids that their parents sometimes can't afford this and that, and the book teaches respect for parents and what money they do have.
