Item description for The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Pressure (First Time Books(R)) by Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain...

Overview
The Berenstain Bears take a close-up look at the effects of stress and hectic schedules on their lives and explain how to balance responsibilities, interests, talents, and available time to allow time for family fun, chores, and sharing. Simultaneous.

Publishers Description
Sister and Brother Bear have activities every day after school, and Mama and Papa have their own interests, too. There isn't much time left over for homework, household chores, or just plain family fun. As the Bears' lives grow more hectic, pressure builds! Finally, the Bears take a realistic look at their responsibilities, talents, and the number of hours in the day and choose after-school activities with care.  
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 Pressure (First Time Books(R))?

Fabulous book, a real wakeup call!  Oct 12, 2006
I'll warn you before buying this book, you might find it to be a real wakeup call. Brother and Sister get involved in a TON of activities and are literally being drug by their parents someplace every day. Whether it's horseback riding, swimming, soccer or dance, Mama is toting them from here to there while trying to fit her own schedule into the mess. Papa helps sometimes, but he's busy with his work too. When the car finally breaks down and Sister and Brother are late for some event, Mama just goes upstairs and cries. This upsets the cubs and Brother runs off into the woods to get his Papa. Mama is okay when he arrives and they have a family meeting right then and there to decide what part of their schedules is going to be eliminated. It really helps you put into place how busy your life can become when you're not looking. Love this book in our house and we HIGHLY recommend it!
 
The Berentstain Bears And Too Much Pressure  Oct 3, 2003
This was a very chaotic book. It has lots of color and I would recommend it for ages 6-11. This book teaches you how to balance responsibilities, interests, talents, and make time out for family fun, chores, and sharing.
 
The Berenstain Bears And Too Much Pressure  Oct 2, 2003
This book is about to much pressure. Brother and Sister Bear get involved in swimming, computer club, baseball, ballet, art, horse back riding and many other things also. When they are getting ready to go to ballet and baseball practice the car will not start. And the cubs are yelling and screaming go Mama go. We are going to be late. After all of that ciaos Mama Bear is just fed up with all of that and so then she starts to break down crying. Brother Bear runs and goes and gets Papa Bear and they go into the house with Mama and Sister Bear. The lesson this book teaches is that if you get to involved or busy with things you might get to much pressure from it. I was not to sure on the age level for this book. But the book can teach you how to level things out, because if you do to much you get under pressure.
 
Too Much To Do.  Sep 9, 2002
The Bear Family has become the busiest family in Bear Country. Not because of all the work they have to do, but because of all the activities and organizations they are involved. After the family has a night of bad dreams involving the overworked schedule and Mama has a crying spell when the car won't start, the family sits down to straighten things out.

This book, in a subtle way, reminds us all about how precious life is and how valuable time is. It illustrates how overcommitting oneself can be detrimental and it even touches upon the dangers of listening to peer pressure. In this era of go-go-go, it's a helpful reminder to us all.

 
Berenstain Bears and Too Much Pressure  Oct 27, 1997
Being 14 I remember reading many of teh Berenstain Bears Series. This one I picked from the library not too long ago, for a project at school. This book not only shows the result of pressure, but also the result of following friends, as Brother and Sister did when they decided to join up for certain activites.
