More About Stan Berenstain, Jan Berenstain, Steve Jackson, John Kovalic, Liam McIntyre, Eric Myott & Tim Ohr

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! 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.

A Pumpkin Contest.............  May 21, 2008
Poppa Bear finds himself in trouble, after entering the largest pumpkin contest. In growing his pumpkin he becomes entangled with a neighbor, wanting his pumpkin to be the biggest, and best, at all costs. He begins keeping his prized pumpkin under close attention!
 
Papa Bear Learns the Importance of Giving Thanks  Oct 9, 2007
We own over a dozen Berenstain Bear books, and The Berenstain Bears and the Prize Pumpkin is one of my favorites. True to life, this book tells the story of how Papa Bear is jealous of Farmer Ben's pumpkin patch, and gets quite upset at Farmer Ben's comment that Papa Bear had a "nice little pumpkin patch". Papa Bear wants to win the annual Big Pumpkin Contest...and gets obsessed "The Giant" (the pumpkin he nurtures throughout the story in hopes of winning).

As in most of the Berenstain Bear stories, Papa displays his pettiness and other faults, much to the chagrin of Mama Bear.

But in the end, the family remembers what it means to give thanks and count your blessings:

"It wasn't until they reached the crest of a hill that overlooked Bear Country that Mama decided to have her say. 'I know you're disappointed. But third prize is nothing to be ashamed of. Besides, Thanksgiving isn't about contests and prizes. It's about giving thanks. And it seems to me we have a lot to be thankful for.' Perhaps it was Mama's lecture, or maybe it was how beautiful Bear Country looked in the sunset's rosy glow. But whatever the reason, Papa and the cubs began to understand what Mama was talking about."

Although Papa Bear's behavior and comments are eyebrow raising (as usual), the story has a wonderful moral and lovely illustrations (especially the sunset and nighttime scenes!).
 
A great Holiday story  Nov 1, 2006
Be sure not to pass this book up when looking for Thanksgiving books to read to your children. In the classic Berenstain bears style, the cubs learn to be thankful after trying to win a pumpkin contest. They learn quite quickly to be thankful for what they have instead of trying to outdo the next guy and be the best at everything. Even Papa learns a lesson in this one. It's quite cute and a real favorite in our house. Highly recommend!
 
A Thanksgiving Lesson  Oct 22, 2002
This book was a wonderful book. In it Papa Bear loses sight of what's important around Thanksgiving when he tries to beat out Farmer Ben in the Pumpkin Contest. After Farmer Ben tells Papa Bear that he has a "nice little" pumpkin patch Papa Bear does everything in his power to nuture his largest Pumpkin he calls, "Giant." Mama Bear tries to get him to realize that there are other things that are more important around this time of year than winning a silly contest. That is why this book would be helpful to little children it tries to help them to realize that they should be thankful everyday for what they have and not be competitive about things that in the long run won't matter anyway.It tells kids that they have a lot to be thankful for and that they should remember those things everyday.
I would recommend it to any child who needs to learn the value of day to day life and how to respect and love everything about it.
