More About Stan 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 our customers think?
They Didn't Really Answer the Big Question.  May 22, 2008
I am Christian and was greatly looking forward to getting this book for my daughter. When it arrived and I read it I was severely disapointed because it never answered the big question. The closest that it got was that God made everything. That was it. So, if your wanting to get this book to actually help answer that question for your children I wouldn't recomend it because it doesn't answer it.
A Helpful Story  Apr 14, 2008
This book deals with the subject of religion in a way that is thoughtful and constructive. It is not overly aggressive or obnoxious in preaching religion but it does provide a useful context for discussing religious issues with kids. Its title is "The Big Question"--the book is about questions and how we deal with them. I think it is a nice addition to the Berenstain Bears library and it's interesting to see the authors trying to deal with more complex subjects like this--not an easy task. I think they handled it very well.
A great book!!! Don't believe these fools.  Aug 4, 2006
I'm tired of people complaining about how the world is not open to their views. Those people are completely closed to the Christian view. This book is great and it does not shove anything down your throught. I enjoyed it and can't wait to share it.

THANK YOU STAN BERENSTAIN for being open minded.
...and the Smaller Answer.  Jun 13, 2006
I grew up with the Berenstain Bears, reading them and having them read to me both as a connection with the outside world and a symbol of morality. While I enjoyed their handling of bullying, Racism, and School Problems, I find myself not that satisfied with this interpretation of 'what is out there'.

I'm a Humanist. Unlike the Richard Dawkinses out there, I don't believe in the eradication of Religion entirely, but in tolerating it as an alternative and mostly good view. Like The Bears themselves and their Grandparents in this book, my less immediate Family were and still are deeply faithful Methodists, and like the bears they were more in favour of using Religion as a connection between different people rather than a seperation between different faiths.

Richard Dawkins and some similarly-minded reviewers on this very page fall into the trap of believing that Religion is only one thing, and in their idea it is a force that makes people kill other people for a holy wars. Yet look into the stories of Buddhism and the traditions of Judeaism, spend one morning in a methodist Church and an afternoon in a Mosque, and you can see that the Average true believer couldn't care less who doesn't worship the way they do - all that matters to them Religion-Wise is Pleasing God, and the biggest rule of all Religions is: 'Do Unto Others as you would have them Do Unto You'.

Thus, I find a few problems with this book. Firstly, when Sister asks Papa, our symbol of the Patriarchal side of the outside world, he begins to give us the alternative, scientific ideas - that the Universe was born in a Big Bang, that stars each have a place, etc. - but this is rudely dismissed as a 'BORING LECTURE'. Mama, the symbolisation of the Kinder, 'Matriarchal' society, immediatley scoops Sister away and explains that it's all part of 'God's Plan' - but in doing so presumes to the Readers that this is solid, unarguable fact.

These are the only objections I have. The parts in the Church are better because they show children the good side of Religion, but it should also be varied as to other religions - Like Professor Actual Factual in 'Berenstain Bears Don't Pollute (Anymore)' showing us different kinds of Pollution around Bear Country, Mama could have taken the family to other Religious places in town, or even next door to the Panda family, who might be Buddhists.

All I'm saying is that though I deeply respect all of the Berenstain family, it might be wise to revise their introduction to Religion. Children, when books are read to them, are 'Clean Slates' - their ideas are new and only vaguely affected by outside influence. Unlike TV & Gaming machines, a Book can give them an informed opinion of a subject - so we have to be careful not to give them one view, but let them choose from several.

Thanks for reading, and all my Love to the Bear Family.

Closed minded  Apr 25, 2006
I was a fan of the Berenstain Bears as a kid and as I grew up I respected the way they could address difficult issues in an open minded, positive, and non-biased manner. Thus, I was suprised when I read this title. Expecting maybe a look at world religions or some such, I was disappointed to find it only looked at Christianity.
