Meet the Author

Stan and Jan Berenstain were already successful cartoonists for magazines and adult humor books when they began writing children's books. The first story starring the bear family, The Big Honey Hunt, appeared in 1962. Since then, more than 370 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 300 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons' love of reading has become over the years arguably the best-selling children's book series ever.

Since their inception, the Berenstain Bears stories have expanded to include picture books, beginning readers, and chapter books--even a hit TV show on PBS. Writing and illustrating the books has become a Berenstain family affair. Mike joined with his parents as a creative team in the late 1980s. The Bear family has expanded over the years as well. Sister Bear arrived in 1974, and baby Honey joined the family in 2000.

Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Berenstain Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania.

Did I enjoy this book: We picked this book up from the library. Berenstain Bear books are usually a safe bet, but this book was not usual. One of the things I love about Berenstain Bear books is that they generally teach an important social lesson that relates to young children. This lesson is delivered in an entertaining way that draws readers into the world of Bear Country. Go Green did not accomplish this. Most of the story talks about the city dump leaking oil into the creek and a town meeting where adults plan to rectify the problem. The cubs, who are usually the vehicle by which the important lesson is learned, are completely peripheral to the main action of the story. This leaves the young readers without characters to relate to. Further, children are not generally found attending town hall meetings or helping clean up toxic waste at city dumps. Is the message suppose to be that only adults can &ldquo;Go Green?&rdquo; There are so many ways children can help the environment, and Go Green manages to mention a couple of them as an afterthought on the second to last page of the story. Perhaps it&rsquo;s the fact that this book was co-written by the Berenstain&rsquo;s son Mike and I don&rsquo;t like his style, but I feel that there is a much better way to deliver this message. The story and characters are flat and I felt no emotional connection to them. My son was totally uninterested . . . and here I thought 3-year-olds were suppose to be riveted by the description of town hall meetings . . . Come on Berenstains . . . I expect more from you than this! Tell us more about how KIDS can help take care of the environment. Talk about HOW to recycle instead of just mentioning it. Show the cubs initiating a town trash pickup event. Explain what composting is and how it works instead of just throwing the topic out there and then dropping it. Would I recommend it: Nope. Not even a little. After our initial read, my child never asked me to read it again, which is slightly unheard of if you know my kid, so I&rsquo;d stay steer clear of this Berenstain Bear book.
