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.

GREAT Aug 29, 2006
This book is great. It starts with Brother and Sister getting along. Then Sister has her feet in Brother's face and he gets angry. Then she runs off and hogs the bathroom. They act like total jerks to each other. Finally they make up at the end and talk to each other again.
Good for Young Children Mar 12, 2006
I really enjoy reading the Berenstain Bears books to my two children (ages 5 & 7). They do a wonderful job of modeling important life lessons. This book shows how one little incident can snowball into a big fight, and sometimes even draw parents into an argument. My only disappointment: I wish the authors had shown the cubs apologizing to each other. The story ends with, "So Brother and Sister Bear hugged and made up. And got along just beautifully-until the next time, anyway." The story shows them fighting, so it would have been better balanced if they had also modeled the "making-up" process. When the cubs realize that they don't remember what started the fight, they simply stop fighting. Mama & Papa do not have to sit through a whole "who wronged whom" session. Anyway, it is a good springboard for discussion of "what would you do?" and "why do you think s/he did that?" with young children. I would definitely recommend it.
A great lesson! Apr 14, 2002
Brother Bear and Sister Bear are in a big fight. They are not speaking to each other and if they are they don't say anything nice.
This teachs kids how even if you and a brother or sister are fighting how to work through it. It is a great book for kids!

Those battling Bears! Mar 24, 2001
"The Berenstain Bears Get in a Fight," by Stan and Jan Berenstain, is another wonderful entry in this excellent series of illustrated children's books. In this volume, there's trouble brewing in the Bear family when Brother and Sister Bear start feuding. But, with a little helpful guidance from their caring parents, the sparring siblings learn some life lessons about fighting--and about making up.
This book pairs an easy-to-read text with colorful illustrations. These semi-human bears have an amusingly "cartoony" look to them, and the best of the book's illustrations contain delightful details. I especially love the pictures that show the Bears going through their daily routine--eating breakfast, riding the bus to school, etc. I give "The Berenstain Bears Get in a Fight" an enthusiastic recommendation.
