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.

Berenstain Bears love Sep 8, 2007
I'm such a huge fan of the Berenstain Bears series and with books like this one it's no surprise why.
The story finds brother bear as falling behind in school because of an illness that keeps him at home. Instead of keeping up with his assignments he stays busy playing with his toys and watching tv. So when it's time to go back to school brother is clueless about his studies and fails a quiz.
What's great about this book is that brother tries to skip school and avoid his parents but when he does come clean his parents aren't irate like he thought they would but instead they help him to catch back up. I personally thought this was a good lesson for both kids and parents because school can be hard but facing it and having understand parents can help kids excel in school instead of becoming overwhelmed by it.
good Aug 29, 2006
good book shows important to just be honest with parents and to do make up homework and not put it off. otherwise just get into a deeper mess.
The joy of reading these books with my children when they were small Nov 30, 2005
I read this particular book among others from the Berenstain series over and over again to my children when they were small. These books were beautifully illustrated and a real pleasure to look at , as well as to read. If I remember rightly Papa Berenstain was always a bit of a schlump and it was Mama who pulled the chesnuts out of the fire usually. But they were a loving family a caring family and that message came across in a beautiful way.

I like this book too. I read it when I was six and learning English when my parents came here from Kinshasa in the Congo. I learned that school and grades are very important in America and we should do our best to be our best. Luckily I got into a great college (Princeton) and all because this book made me work very hard. I hope to make much money one day.
A Really Good Book Dec 2, 1999
I think the book of "Trouble At School," is really good. It tells kids how school should be more important then anything else in your life. I tells how important grades are to your parents and how important they should be to you. I really liked this book,and I think that little kids should read this book. I really like how Jan and Stan write there books.
