Item description for The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Vacation (First Time Books(R)) by Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain...
Overview The Bear family experiences one mishap after another when they vacation in the Great Grizzly Mountains
Publishers Description The family getaway is a disaster: the cabin's roof leaks, the lake is muddy, and the mosquitoes are ravenous. But when the bears return home and develop their snapshots, they laugh and laugh, fully enjoying the worst vacation they've ever had!
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".
Over 50 children's books later, Stan and Jan still plan all of their books together -- both write the stories, and both write the pictures. They live outside of Philadelphia in the country.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Vacation (First Time Books(R))?
Cute book, goes a little slowly in places Oct 7, 2006
This is such a cute book! Papa bear decides to take the family on a wilderness vacation that basically, turns out horribly. Everything that could go wrong does, and in the end, the family just decides to go home. They take a few photos which they laugh hysterically at at the end of the book, but the story falls a little flat in this one. It had the potential of being really funny, but instead gets a little dry in places. Other than that, it's quite cute and bears reading. We liked it in our house, but it just isn't the favorite.

I like in the story how they took pictures of all the bad stuff that happened, that was funny. It just goes to show you their is no place like home!!

About the Berenstian Bears Oct 24, 2002
The Berenstain bears was a fun and good book to read for me. After I read this book it made me think of when my family and I go on vacation. This book might take a child quit a while to read because there where a lot of words on each page but they would like this book. The book was mainly about Papa bear having a good time and the rest of the family not really enjoying not having electricity and relying on the woods for food and supplies. When they finally arieve the place is a mess and the lake was crappy. The first night of sleep did not work out too well with all of the animals making noise. The next day Papa bear had now luck catching fish and there was a big rain storm which gave the family pleanty of reason to go home. The Bears where never so happy to see their tree house. This was a good book nothing special about it just a fimly out on vacation with not much to do.
Bad Vacation Dec 17, 2001
Berenstain Bears and to much vacation is about when one of our favorite bear families go on a vacation to a mountain cabin. The ad in the paper said it was by crystal lake and came with a rowboat, it did but will this be a wonderful vacation, or a jump in the mud, or maybe a little of both? Find out when you read The Berenstain Bears and To Much Vacation.
