About the Author
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Though Stan died in 2005, and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.

Chapter OneBrother and Sister Bear liked shopping with Mama. One day, Brother saw a toy he wanted. Brother said, "May I have that toy plane?" Mama said, "Yes."
Sister saw a teddy bear. Sister said, "May I have that teddy?" Mama said, "Yes."
But Mama did not say yes all the time.
"I want that truck too," Brother said. Mama said, "No, not today." "Why not?" asked Brother. "You cannot have all the things you want," said Mama. "Why?" asked Sister. Then Mama had an idea.
Mama bought a bank. She said, "I will teach you about money."
The new bank looked like a small pig. It had a slot for money. "The Bible says we should all set aside some money. This will help you save," Mama said.
