Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

After a scary bedtime story, Sister Bear is too frightened of the dark to shut her eyes. "Sound psychological advice and a night light help Sister conquer her fears. Children will empathize with Sister Bear in this well-written story."--"School Library Journal.

About the Author

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 Kid's Review on October 2, 2003
Format: Paperback
This book is about brother bear and sister bear going to the library to get some books. When they arrived home it was reading time and brother bear scared sister bear reading her his scary book he checked out. That night sister bear couldn't fall asleep because she was scared so papa bear gave her a nightlight. That helped her fall asleep and she wasn't scared of the dark anymore. The lesson this book teaches is to not be afraid of the dark. It's a good book and I recommend it for children ages 3-10.

Stan and Jan Berenstain turned out some of their finest books during the early 1980s, and The Berenstain Bears In the Dark is certainly one of their best. A best-seller since its release (now almost 20 years ago) there is a simple reason for its success: the book tells a wonderfully beautiful and fun story but one that is also very true to life. In the book, a night light is placed in the cubs' bedroom because of Sister's fear of the dark. By the end of the book, though, the reader sees that Brother (who argued against the "babyish" light) actually is in need of the night light as much or more than his sister. It is a fun story for kids and one that can be very useful for parents. The story is great and the illustrations are classic Berenstain Bears. This is a personal favorite that I remember from my own childhood and one I will continue to read for years to come! If you have not read it or do not own a copy, get one today, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

When my grandson started having nightmares when he came to stay with me, I immediately thought of this classic book. The Berenstain Bears were a most popular series when my kids were growing up in the 80s. I enjoyed reading them because they were thoughtful, well-written, beautifully illustrated, and easy to read aloud. The kids find them fun and easy to connect to - even today. I am happy to say that my grandson has been getting better overcoming his fears at night and loves this book! That could be also attributed to The Nightmare Solution: Simple, Creative Methods for Working Out Your Dream Problems book which his mother has recently started to work through with him.

My kids love berenstain bears they tackle just about every issue a kid would go through and gives them encouragement and useful ways to handle the issue. In the dark is no exception my daughter liked the fact that others get scared too andThey encouraged her to face her fears. It even had a funny ending. Just as good as the Tv show. Good for 1st and 2nd level readers. Great to read to any age.

A Kid's Review on December 15, 2001
Format: Paperback
I think this book is a pretty good book for people that like to read to young children, or just for anytime reading. This book features all of our favorite Berenstain Bears characters. Mama bear, Papa bear, Brother and Sister bear all play important parts in this book. In it, sister is read a scary book by brother and then is afraid of the dark, but will the scarer become the scaree?

My daughter couldn't afford to buy my grand kids books and they love reading. I am not able to do a lot of "extra spending" either but want the children to love books like I do and have the opportunity to have some. I was so glad to find these and at such a wonderful price. I was able to get the kids each several books of their own and they were so glad to get them to! Go Nanny!!! I will be buying some more for them too!!

We raised 3 children on Berenstain Bears, and they now have families of their own. Each is successful in their chosen life, and we have no doubt Berenstain Bears played a part in it. This order was copies for my grandson, and Christmas morning he will open the 2nd generations exploration of this wonderful group of books.
