Author Bio

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.

    This review was written for The Berenstain Bears and The Truth.
    The Berenstain Bears and the Truth is a good example of the authors tackling a moral issue. In this case, the issue is being truthful. In the book, Brother and Sister Bear are playing with the soccer ball in the living room (which theyre not supposed to do) when a wayward kick knocks Mamas favorite lamp to the floor, breaking it into several pieces. When Mama finds her lamp in pieces on the floor, the children make up a wild tale about a huge, colorful bird that flew in through the window and knocked the lamp over. The more they tell the tale, the more they embellish the birds size and colors, getting confused about whether it was yellow with purple wings or purple with yellow wings.Mama, of course, knows the children are not telling the truth and it makes her sad. When the children say theyre sorry the lamp got broken (without admitting they did it), Mama says:"Im not worried about the lamp. We can always get another lamp, or we can glue this one back together. What Im sad about is the thought that maybe, just maybe, my cubs, whom Ive always trusted, arent telling me the truth. And trust is not something you can put back together again.Brother and Sister then admit to breaking Mamas lamp. What I Like: Everything. This is the type of story any child can relate to. The language is easy to understand and the message is clear: Learning to tell the truth, even when you know you are going to get into trouble, is the right thing to do.Also, this book has been around since 1983. More than one generation of children has learned the importance of telling the truth by reading this story.Christian Children's Book Review
