About the Author

Stan and Jan Berenstain were already successful cartoonists for magazines and adult humor books when they began writing children's books. The first story starring the bear family, The Big Honey Hunt, appeared in 1962. Since then, more than 360 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 300 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons' love of reading has become one of the best-selling children's book series ever.

From the Inside Flap

With the help of Dr. Grizzly's slide show on how the body works, the Bear family makes a healthful adjustment in their diet and fitness habits. "A most enjoyable introduction to good nutrition and exercise."--(starred) "Science Books & Films.

The book not only stresses eating healthy foods, but why our bodies need healthy foods. Book also gives a brief description of the body's different systems, digestive, skeletel, etc. Book finishes with the importance of exercise. Book stresses this lifestyle for children as well as adults.

The world lost a real gem of a writer when Stan Berenstain passed on November 29. Together, Berenstain and his wife, Jan, and eventually their two sons, created books featuring lovable but flawed characters who tackle just about every real issue that faces families.

This book is no exception. Most people, especially kids, have a tendency to overindulge when it comes to junk food. This book shows that eating healthy is a lifelong pursuit (Papa Bear has the same troubles that the kids have). It's not intended as a primer on nutrition or exercize habits, but rather as a fictional story intended to promote conversations among families about healthy lifestyles. And for what it is, it's wonderful.

The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Junk Food was used in teaching my first grade class about healthy eating habits. I'm an educator who just loves to incorporate literature with my lessons. This is a great, detailed story about how one should eat healthy and take care of themselves. I would recommend this book to parents, teachers, and children. The seller sold me the book at a more than reasonable price, the book arrived promptly, and my copy of the book came in wonderful condition.

I am a bit disappointed. I wish this book focused a bit more on being healthy than getting chubby. We want to encourage healthy eating habits for health reasons- not eating disorders. I don't think that teaching little kids they will get fat is really the way we want to go- to instill at such an early age. I will use this book with my preschoolers, but I will 'edit' it a bit to focus more on good health and energy rather than getting cubby.

For some reason, my daughter (2,5 years old) absolutely loves the Berenstain Bears. She has plenty of fancier children's books--hardcover, with artsier illustrations, pop-up 3-D art, embedded puppets etc. But the ones that she goes back to time and again are those in the Berenstain Bears series. They are relatable (which I guess it's their intention), and refer to many situations and objects that she encounters everyday. She loves all the characters and each illustration is always full of so much detail that we can spend hours describing and talking about all the big and little figures on each page. Her favorites so far are this one on Junk Food and the one about the Bedtime Battle. I am super glad that these are so affordable, because I'll definitely buy many more for her. Although they have suffered the wear-and-tear of daily use (literally pages falling apart), I can replace them easily if necessary.

This series was my favorite as a kid and I enjoy reading these stories to my daughter. This story talks about the role of food in your body and even has "x-rays" of a bear skeleton and digestive system with the food pyramid. It also stresses the importance of exercise.

I used to read this one as a child and I felt that it helped me learn about proper nutrition. I just got to read it to my daughter tonight and she has been asking questions about what is good for her to eat or not!

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!!
