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.

We are moving and I was worried that our 3yo wasn't understanding what was going on around him. My husband and I wanted to try and help him to come to terms with leaving the only room and house he's ever known.
This book is absolutly FANTASTIC! It explains that the house they are leaving was a good house and explains why they are choosing to move. It talks about how they will take Brother Bears books and toys (he was worried he would have to leave them). It does a wonderful job of explaining that it's necessary to leave friends while not making it sad. They have managed to make *ME* feel better about leaving friends and our house.
Our son can't wait to move now. If he has a question, he asks and we tell him and try to relate it to the bears story to help him understand. I can't give this book enough stars!

My three year old son cried for hours after I told him the movers would be packing up his toys and books...but he would get them back at our new home. A friend lent me this book. The book broke things down into language little ones could understand. They identified with the characters and saw that all in all, it turned out o.k. As we read the book, we discussed it. My three year old learned all about moving day. How much fun we would have at our new home..and he even asked where we would be moving. I told him Chicago..and he has been telling everyone. This book took my three year old from tears to EXCITEMENT for moving day. If your planning a move..especailly a big one like we were....if you do nothing else for your child...buy them this book, to help them with their feelings and the transition.

In 1981 we moved cross coutry with our three year old son. This book helped "develop" the pictures of the process for him. Now I am in the "mentor" position for other young mothers facing long distance moves. This is my first gift choice for them and their three or four year olds to make the process understandable and FUN. Patricia Smith, RNS, MS

A Kid's Review on October 17, 2001
Format: Paperback
This was one of the best children's books I have read, and I recommend it for children that are getting ready to move. This book was written by Stan and Jan Berenstain.
Moving day is about a family of bears, they are Papa bear, Mama bear, and brother bear. Before they moved to the valley, they lived in a cave. Mama had a vegetable garden, and Papa cut down trees and made furniture. Brother kept busy playing with his many friends, which were animals. Then Papa bear said that they they needed to move because the trees were getting farther and farther away and Mama bear agreed that they needed to move because the soil was getting too hard for her vegetable garden. Brother bear was very sad about moving because he would miss his friends. Mama bear said that he could write his old friends and make new friends when they moved into their new house. They moved into a treehouse that needed alot of work. As they looked at it and imagined how it would look after it was fixed up, the neighbors came over to say "hi". Now the bears had new friends and after they fixed up the treehouse it was just perfect!

Too wordy with a complicated story line. The pictures flip from one scene and back to the next without understandable progression for a three year old. It would be good for a child over 5 in my opinion.

it's a good book with the message I was looking for, but on my fire the pages only show up as a 2"x2" picture with text above.

I think there's a very good reason that this book series has spanned decades and maintained popularity. It gives children the chance to think on their own and make their own choices for behaviors that carry over into their adult lives. Many of these issues will be ones that will persist through their lives, just on different levels of course.

Growing up we did a lot of moving from apartment to apartment, and in college I was used to moving every year. I liked seeing some situations relate to what you can expect every time. These books are great.

I have to admit that I have been a fan of the Berenstain Bears since childhood. I bought this book for my 21-month-old son to help him understand an upcoming move. The text is too advanced for his short attention span but he enjoys the pictures. My husband and I showed him the pictures and told the story in our own words. It's difficult to say if this book eased our son's transition from our old house to our new. However, our move is complete and our son still enjoys looking at this book.
