    ITEM#: 3027106

    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.
    When Papa Bear tells the cubs why they should never talk to strangers, Sister begins to view all strangers as evil until Mama brings some common sense to the problem. "The Bears' rules for safe conduct among strangers are listed on the last pages, including a rule about the privacy of a bear's body. A good book to start awareness in young children."--School Library Journal.

    • Love it!

      Read this to my 4 1/2 year old and she loved it, just as she does all of the other Bernstein Bears books. She asked lots of questions at the end and demonstrated how she would react if she met a stranger. The info really sticks in their heads. Great book for children.

    • confusing

      This book would be good for older children but for mine who are 2 and 4yrs and really need to learn about strangers it was confusing. I could see how the moral of this story could be misunderstood by young children, some parts of the book make it sound like its ok to talk to some strangers but not others. I would recommend for children 6+.
