More About Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain
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.
Stan Berenstain lived in Solebury, in the state of Pennsylvania. Stan Berenstain was born in 1923 and died in 2005.
Reviews - What do customers think about The Berenstain Bears and the Week at Grandma's (First Time Books(R))?
Week At Grandma's Jan 15, 2008
We actually got this book for my daughter's grandma because we had gotten other Berenstain Bears' books that grandma was reading to my daughter and she commented that she loved the Bears!
an all-time childhood favorite May 6, 2000
This is a Berenstain Bears classic, and one I will always treasure. Some of my greatest childhood memories were days I spent with my grandparents, and all the strange and wonderful things we learned and discovered together.
It is not always easy for kids to leave their parents for days at a time, but this book is a wonderful story that helps kids to overcome their fears of spending time away (a similiar theme is developed in "The Berenstain Bears Go To Camp.").
The story is fun for kids and adults alike, and families can relate well to it. Additionally, the illustrations are colorful and engaging.
...this is not necessarily a book for first time readers, but early readers, and there are other Berenstain Bears books with easier words. This a great one for kids who have been reading for some time and otherwise works as a great story to read aloud to your kids.
Highly recommended as a cornerstone to any children's library or Berenstain Bears collection.
A Good Read Aloud Book for Parents of Young Kids Mar 29, 2000
All of my children enjoyed this book, and the message, of spending a week at Grandma's (the prospect of which has Brother and Sister Bear somewhat anxious), and the "old folks" turning out to be livewires and loads of fun, is a great one. The text (and amount of it per page) is probably a little much for beginning readers. The illustrations, like all Berenstain Bears Books, are charming, especially those depicting a honeymooning Mother and Father Bear as thinner and active (so that the kid bears don't recognize them!). Overall, a solid book that kids will enjoy and parents won't mind reading repeatedly.
