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.
Stan Berenstain lived in Solebury, in the state of Pennsylvania. Stan Berenstain was born in 1923 and died in 2005.

A Good Lesson for Families Apr 15, 2008
This book tells a positive story for all families--about how we should get out of our own selfish pursuits and concerns and think about the needs of others--very highly recommended!
Still great after all these years! Feb 1, 2007
I read them as a child and now my children read them. I will continue to add more to our colection!
I grew up with the Berenstain Bears, and now my sons are Mar 29, 2003
I never realized when I was little that the Berenstain Bear books were teaching me lessons (although I do remember reading the messt room one and the bad dream one quite often). We went to visit my husband's famil and his MUCH younger sister (7) was reading her Berenstain Bear books. This made me nostlagic for when I used to read them, so I bought some for my son the next time we went to the bookstore. However he was six months old and too young to really need to learn any of the many lessons available. This one however and The Berenstain Bears Count Their Blessings seemed to me to be timeless lessons that can be learned from a very young age, since I believe in these princilpes strongly. He loves them and I have realized how much we ALL can learn from the Berenstain Bears, if nothing else a good way as parents to handle situations. Since then, we have bought him the holiday books for the coresponding holiday, books for birthdays and Christmas, and books to help him deal with a baby brother. He loves books, and always thinks it's a treat to read his Berenstain Bears books!
Berenstains on target with this book Oct 4, 2000
We are all familiar with the Berenstain Bears, their many adventures, and the lessons they have taught young readers for over 30 years. However, The Berenstain Bears Think of Those in Need is more timely than ever and one of the best books to be written by Stan and Jan in recent years. It seems that society is more materialistic than ever, and people especially in the United States have more "stuff" than they know what to do with. Perhaps the most spoiled are our children, surrounded with toys, games, computers, clothes, and more than they could ever need throughout a lifetime. This book gives children (and their parents!) a wonderful example by making the point that even though things are good for many of us, not everybody is as well off. It seems that the Berenstain Bears have taught almost every imaginable lesson regarding good behavior at home, but now we are seeing a wonderful example of social conscience/responsibility. Especially in Bear Country it may be hard to imagine anything bad ever happening, but the Bear Family reminds us that there are always people to help, and the things we don't need can always be used by others.
