Author Bio

Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too.  Though Stan died in 2005, and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from their studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.

The Berenstain Bears Hurry to Help by Jan Berenstain and son Mike is an updated attempt to show the Good Samaritan story in action. Papa Bear, as scoutmaster, takes Brother and Sister Bear and their cousin out for the day to perform a good deed. Unfortunately, every time they take action, they only cause trouble. Helping an old woman across the street makes her miss her bus, and trying to help a farmer only causes his tractor to break down. Finally, toward the end of the day Papa Bear slips off of a cliff and sustains a lot of bruises. He cannot walk. The three Bear Scouts get a wheelbarrow, put Papa inside, and somehow transport him all the way home. Mama Bear announces that in rescuing Papa, the Bear Scouts have earned their Good Deed Merit Badge. They have acted as good Samaritans. Everyone is happy.

The book begins by quoting Philippians 2:4, "Each of you should look not only to your own interests but also to the interests of others." Other verses of scripture are quoted throughout the telling of the story. The brightly colored drawings and easy-to-read words will make this a book that 4- to 7-year-olds will enjoy time and again. -- Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    When Scout Leader Papa Bear takes his troupe out to earn their Good Deed Merit Badges, in The Berenstain Bears Hurry to Help written and illustrated by Stan and Jan Berenstain, things of course dont go smoothly. Papa Bear and the troupe try to help several neighbors who really dont need help. In the course of doing so, they create problems where there werent any to start with. After several attempts to be helpful, Papa Bear ends up getting hurt. The scout troupe has to find a way to get Papa Bear back to his home. After much exertion, they manage to do so. But, they are discouraged that their day ended in defeat as they werent able to help any of their neighbors.Mama Bear then points out that they did indeed help someone, they helped Papa Bear who required their assistance in getting home. So, they earned their Good Deed Merit Badges after all.The illustrations by Mike Berenstain, done in the usual Berenstain Bear-style, are colorful, expressive and cartoon-like.This Bible verse is given as a reference for the story: Each of you should look not only to your interests but also to the interests of others. [Philippians 2:4]What I Like: Several of the characters in this episode Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Farmer Ben quote Scripture as part of the text for the book. What I Dislike: Nothing.Overall Rating: Excellent.Christian Children's Book Review
