About 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 360 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 one of the best-selling children's book series ever.

Berenstain Bear books are cheap, and cover nearly every issue, but they sometimes have problems with them.Take this one. Papa Bear is often the foil to Mama's wisdom. Unfortunately, that means in this book he's stuck being the bigot, disliking their neighbors for being different... even though he's never been presented like that before.His objections are settled miraculously - and unbelievably - quickly as well. The whole book comes across as very unrealistic, really.One point of interest - the Bears host a neighborhood potluck, but they use the term "covered dish dinner" instead.

When pandas rather than brown bears move in across the dirt road deep in Bear Country, Papa Bear is concerned about the new neighbors being different. When the Bear family gets to know the Panda family, they befriend them and welcome them to the neighborhood, and Papa realizes just how interesting and important different-looking people can be.
