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".  

Over 50 children's books later, Stan and Jan still plan all of their books together -- both write the stories, and both write the pictures.  They live outside of Philadelphia in the country.

I really like this book. I presents complex idea in such a way it's entertaining a teaching at the time. Simple enough for my 4 year old but interesting enough for mom.

This is a great book. Well worth getting your hands on. It has basic explanations of many simple science concepts including simple machines (levers & wheels), matter (solid, liquid & gas) and energy. All these are explained as part of the story (the Bear family is preparing projects for the Science Fair) and in the fun to read rhyming pattern commonly used in Berenstain Bears books. My 3 to 6 year olds love it.

My 5 year old loves this book. I didn't know it would rhyme like Dr. Suess. It's fairly long. Sometimes we read 1/2 of it before bedtime. We love the Nature Guide one, too. Recommend both these for preschool and early elementary children, older ones that are reading solo would like it too.
