Book Description

Oct. 12 1981 First Time Books(R)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh No! Not My Toys!! Sept. 30 1999
By A Customer
My three year old son cried for hours after I told him the movers would be packing up his toys and books...but he would get them back at our new home. A friend lent me this book. The book broke things down into language little ones could understand. They identified with the characters and saw that all in all, it turned out o.k. As we read the book, we discussed it. My three year old learned all about moving day. How much fun we would have at our new home..and he even asked where we would be moving. I told him Chicago..and he has been telling everyone. This book took my three year old from tears to EXCITEMENT for moving day. If your planning a move..especailly a big one like we were....if you do nothing else for your them this book, to help them with their feelings and the transition.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Berenstain Bears' Moving Day Oct. 17 2001
By A Customer
This was one of the best children's books I have read, and I recommend it for children that are getting ready to move. This book was written by Stan and Jan Berenstain.
Moving day is about a family of bears, they are Papa bear, Mama bear, and brother bear. Before they moved to the valley, they lived in a cave. Mama had a vegetable garden, and Papa cut down trees and made furniture. Brother kept busy playing with his many friends, which were animals. Then Papa bear said that they they needed to move because the trees were getting farther and farther away and Mama bear agreed that they needed to move because the soil was getting too hard for her vegetable garden. Brother bear was very sad about moving because he would miss his friends. Mama bear said that he could write his old friends and make new friends when they moved into their new house. They moved into a treehouse that needed alot of work. As they looked at it and imagined how it would look after it was fixed up, the neighbors came over to say "hi". Now the bears had new friends and after they fixed up the treehouse it was just perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for moving toddlers Oct. 20 1999
We are moving and I was worried that our 3yo wasn't understanding what was going on around him. My husband and I wanted to try and help him to come to terms with leaving the only room and house he's ever known.
This book is absolutly FANTASTIC! It explains that the house they are leaving was a good house and explains why they are choosing to move. It talks about how they will take Brother Bears books and toys (he was worried he would have to leave them). It does a wonderful job of explaining that it's necessary to leave friends while not making it sad. They have managed to make *ME* feel better about leaving friends and our house.
Our son can't wait to move now. If he has a question, he asks and we tell him and try to relate it to the bears story to help him understand. I can't give this book enough stars!

3.0 out of 5 stars Moving Day Oct. 2 2003
By A Customer
It was about a bear family loving where they live including their friends and home. But the soil for growing vegetables was hard and rocky so they decided to move well papa and mama bear. When they found a place to move it needed a little bit of work but they managed what it would look like and they got new friends and a new home and a new place to grow vegetables. It was a very good book and I would read it again if I had to but its not something I would read again by choice. It teaches kids what ever you do something good will come of it eventually.ages 3-8
