Stan, Jan, and Mike Berenstain
The Berenstain Bears 5-Minute Read-Along Stories is the perfect companion for young readers at bedtime or anytime. With classic stories from the Berenstain Bears Living Lights series, join the Bear family and all their friends in Bear Country as they learn how to be good friends, how to play fairly, where to find courage, and much more. This oversize padded storybook is sure to become a lap time favorite for Berenstain fans, both young and old, as they read these stories in 5 minutes.
I’ve always been a fan of the Berenstain Bears, so this is an easy winner for me. This book is a steal at the listed price (on Amazon). You get 12 classic stories in one very nicely designed book. I hardly need to comment on the stories, as they’re the ones you probably already know and love.
The artwork throughout this classic series is so simple, yet so visually interesting. It takes a certain kind of skill to communicate so clearly through art, and perhaps that’s why I’ve been a fan for so long. This book is no different. I’d say it’s a must-have for any young reader’s library. The book itself is nicely bound in a padded hardcover, so you’re guaranteed years of enjoyment from this one.
I can hardly complain here either. As mentioned, the book is bound in a padded (puffy) hardcover. The artwork is wonderful, and the title is lightly embossed in blue foil. Nicely done.
About the Authors
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 his studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.
