More About Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain

Stan 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 Forget Their Manners (First Time Books(R))?

Manners Matter!  May 21, 2008
In today's culture manners are becoming an increasing issue. Parents aren't sure how to handle their children, without over stepping their boundaries. This book may be a good starting point, on where to begin. The younger the child the better.
A Nice Story  Apr 15, 2008
This is one of the Berenstain Bears all time classics. It's a wonderful guide to how to achieve better manners in the family.
Wonderful book to remind kids of their manners  Oct 14, 2007
This book was even better than I thought it would be. My 5 year old actually requests me to read it to her. When she starts to act up, I just remind her to use her manners, just like the Berenstain Bears. Or she will often times use great manners and tell me that she uses good manners just like the Bears. It's wonderful. It's a must-have for all parents with toddlers.
Say It's Not So! The Berenstain Bears Forget Their Manners?  Aug 12, 2007
In my opinion, this is THE BEST Berenstain Bears book we have read. It not only does a very good job describing what good manners are, but also why not having them is bad.

The book begins with the cubs displaying some downright familiar examples of bad manners. There is a lack of 'please' and 'thank you' and 'I'm sorry' which leads to the usual sort of familial squabbling. Seeing what's going on, Mama and Papa make a gentle attempt to push the family back on track; but nothing works until Mama creates a chart with a penalty scheme to help everyone 'remember' what appropriate behavior is.

The reaction to the chart is not all that surprising. Brother and Sister Bear think the penalties are unfair. Which is when they decide to undermine Mama's efforts by being so 'super polite' that she will get "fed up and call the whole thing off!" [Ha!] Of course, that doesn't work as we all know that Good Manners lead to harmony and happiness and that you can't really overdo it.

Five Stars. In my opinion this is as good as the Berenstain Bears books get. The message of Good Manners is important, the examples good, and the story is told at just the right level. Okay Read-Aloud.
The Berenstain Bears forget their manners...  Feb 14, 2007
Wow, I have to say that every since I was in Elementary School, I have loved The Berenstain Bears. I am almost certain I've read each and every single book.

I personally think that this book is perfect for children in Grade School, because these books helped me when I was growing up. I read the one about Junk Food, and even now, I try and not overload myself on sweets, and eat some fruits such as Mangos, Peaches etc.

I think any new parent would be very wise to buy the entire collection for their little one(s).
