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' New Baby (First Time Books(R))?

A Charming Classic Story  Apr 14, 2008
I love this book! It is a genuine classic--one of the early Berenstain Bears books. It is cute and innocent and a very good way to introduce the idea of a new baby coming into the family for very young children. There may be more sophisticated books which would be better for older kids, but for younger children, this is perfect.
 
some out-dated ideas, but still valuable  May 8, 2006
My two-and-a-half-year-old son enjoys this book. Yes, it does leave a lot of aspects out, but it's a short story, just long enough for a young child to sit and listen to. If you are OK with some stereotyping then go ahead and get this book. I have made sure to explain to my son that these are some out-dated ideas and things are different nowadays!
 
This book is good for small children.  Sep 9, 2005
This is book is good for small children, who need to understand how a new baby will change their life without being saddled with details on labor, delivery and pregnancy. To those who expect more, get another book... this one was written in the early 80s, when such things were as openly discussed as they are now. Most fathers didnt go into the delivery room at the time. Besides, they're BEARS not people. Also, to the people who find the gender-role things askew, come on... again, this was not written in this decade... yes it is dated, but I personally don't WANT my kids reading a whole lot of details on the process. Last, some complain that the child would have to be stupid to not notice mama's changing shape... not necessarily. A very small child would only notice such a thing when it effects them (hence mama's lap getting too small).
 
So disappointed!  Oct 17, 2004
As a lover of Berenstain Bears books since I was a small child, I was horrified to read this book! All the other reviews capture all that is wrong with this book. We have relied on the Berenstain Bears to get through to our 5 year old for years, so I trusted that this book would help explain a new addition to our family. I could not have been more wrong! It turned into a discussion on all that was wrong with the book- Very confusing for a child. The Berenstains should SERIOUSLY consider rewriting this book as a service to their loyal fans. I must say, this book is atypical and the rest of the series is FABULOUS!
 
Absolutely Offensive Book!  Sep 14, 2004
I agree with the disappointed reviewer...and more so. This is easily the most offensive kids book in print today! There are so many things wrong with it, one doesn't know where to start.

1.) Presumably, the mother bear has been pregnant for some months (as anthropomorphic bears, maybe nine months?), yet this little boy bear hasn't somehow noticed his mother's growing stomach at all. He just notices that HE is now too big for his bed. Is the child stupid? This just is NOT possible. Even the dumbest child would be keenly aware of the changing shape of mommy.

2.) Apparently, pregnancy, labor and even delivery are the sole responsibility of women. The father bear and the son just somehow amble off into the woods "when the time comes." So...men are apparently useless and unwanted in such circumstances, and, birthing is strictly women's work. Hey, everyone can be offended. We're all winners!

3.) Also, for today's readers/families the gender-based division of labor is a bit much. Even on the morning of the blessed event, the mother makes breakfast and the two males head off to the woods with an axe to chop things down, and then use a variety of tools to make a bed "just in time."

4.) It also sends the puzzling message that it's okay to keep children in the dark about major life events...things they need to know about well in advance. Can you imagine not telling a child that a sibling was on the way, and just showing up with a baby one day? Huh? What universe is this book from?
