Overview After viewing a scary movie about the Spacegrizzlies, Brother Bear has a nightmare
Publishers Description After watching a scary movie, both Brother and Sister Bear are troubled by nightmares until Mama and Papa explain what causes bad dreams.
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 the Bad Dream (First Time Books(R))?
A Funny and Helpful Story Apr 15, 2008
This book has the advantage of both being really funny and really helpful. The story about a movie featuring "Space Grizzlies" is hilarious, while the lesson about how to deal with and understand the bad dreams that the movie can inspire is genuinely helpful.
Love this book! It's awesome! Feb 13, 2008
This book really should be owned by every child, it's really that good! It's very hysterical in places and it's really the favorite of all the Berenstain Bears books we have. The book talks about the day the bear kids have, what they do, etc. However, when they go to bed, sister is first to have a nightmare so mama and papa explain to her what it's all about - just her brain mixing up all the events of the day. Then brother does and when he explains his dream, it's just really, really funny! It's one of those stories that kids never forget and it helps them so very much. Especially when Brother's dream is explained and it shows how very weird dreams can be. Awesome book, a loved very much favorite in this house. Highly, highly, highly recommend!
Superb Jul 25, 2007
This book shows that bad dreams may be scary but there is a reason behind them.
Good if you like the Berenstain Bears Jan 26, 2007
I was looking for a book about bad dreams, and since the kids like the BB, this seemed like a lock. And in general, it is good, but it takes FOREVER to get to the actual bad dream part! The majority of the book is setting up all the things the cubs did all day which then precipitated the bad dreams. Then only about 4 pages are spent dealing with the actual dream. So that was a bit disappointing, but it is still entertaining and you can certainly use it as a jumping-off point to discuss bad dreams. (It is based on a TV episode that we've seen since.)
Wonderful! Dec 15, 2005
The world lost a real gem of a writer when Stan Berenstain passed on November 29. Together, Berenstain and his wife, Jan, and eventually their two sons, created books featuring lovable but flawed characters who tackle just about every real issue that faces families.
All kids will experience their first nightmare at some point, hopefully later than sooner. This book is a great way to open up a dialogue with a kid who has had a nightmare. Like all of the Berenstain Bears books, it's not intended to provide a child with coping skills, but rather to help open up a line of conversation wherein the parent can help the child directly. It's simply a fable, an outline, a conversation starter. And it's a wonderful one.
