Welcome to Bear Country, home of the Berenstain Bears. For forty years, Stan and Jan Berenstain have written and illustrated more than a hundred books about their Bear family. Five of the books are included in this volume: New Baby, Sitter, In the Dark, Go to the Doctor, and Messy Room. Many of the stories reflect new experiences for the child, and all exhibit good-natured wisdom and humor. There are funny words and great expressions. Kids may be inspired to learn and use some of the words, real and unreal. There is always as much detail in the illustrations as there is in the text! Each image shows what is happening in a clever way. These books are enduring favorites for family reading. Educators and librarians have used them as a variety of tools and for pleasure. This book will be great as a gift for children, parents, teachers, and librarians. It is a treasure to have these beloved, cross-generational stories together in one package. Reviewer: Naomi Butler

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.
