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 book May 28, 2008
I have talked to my daughter on many occasions about strangers. However, after reading this book to her several times (and stopping to talk about what was happening), she's finally starting to understand that she shouldn't interact with strangers unless her parents are around.
Great Book About Stranger Danger............ May 23, 2008
This issue is one of the biggest, when it comes to a child's safety, and well being. Kidnappings have risen over the years, with the changes into today's society. Children are extremely visible to predators. Criminals have found much easier ways, of gaining information, about your child. If these strangers have enough about the child, their family, their friends, being approached, with small talk, could convince a young person to fall into their deadly trap. These offenders no longer need a street, an internet connection, is all the better. Though net safety is not included in this book, the basic concepts can fit into about any stranger danger conflicts. It is a starting source, which aims not to frighten the youngster. It is to help instill safety, in similarity to stop, drop, and roll for fire safety. After reading with a child, allow for stranger questions. Ask, and help a child setup a safety plan. Come up with ground rules, the child understands, when dealing with unfamiliar individuals, or places. Explain the safest places to go if they become lost. Discuss being home alone, and how to handle phone calls,or someone at the door, could allude to the child being alone!
Good, but maybe not for very small children May 2, 2008
I guess this is a good place to start, but it's a little too nuanced for small kids. I would recommend this book for five and up, but then again, I'm no expert
Stranger Danger..... Nov 7, 2007
Effective book for young children. My daughter is just like the sister bear character, so I think she's been able to relate to her character and not be too scared of people she doesn't know. I would definately recommend this book for parents of 4-5 year olds. For a younger child, "Your Body Belongs to You" by Cornelia Spelman, it's easier for them to understand I think. Berenstain Bears is a great series that I will follow.
This book is great at addressing Stranger-danger Oct 14, 2007
I wasn't sure what to tell my 3 and 5 year olds about strangers or how to go about it. This book is perfect. It addresses strangers, but doesn't put total fear in the kids about it. It's a perfect introduction to being aware of strangers around them. Highly recommended.
