Product Description

About the Author

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".  

Over 50 children's books later, Stan and Jan still plan all of their books together -- both write the stories, and both write the pictures.  They live outside of Philadelphia in the country.

The Berenstain Bears and the Nerdy Nephew March 26 2000
By Amy Chipp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
I just finished reading the book The Berenstain Bears and the Nerdy Nephew by Stan and Jan Berenstain.The book consisted of 100 pages. The words were really big though, because it's a childrens book. This book is about the Berenstain Bears family. One of their nephews came down to stay with his uncle (Actual Factual) and go to school with Brother and Sister Berenstain. Momma and Papa Berenstain got a phone call from Actual Factual asking that Brother and Sister show Ferdinand Factual around school, and look after him for a while until he gets use to everything. Sister and Brother were really excited to meet Ferdy. They had never met him before. At school Ferdy got made fun of and picked on a lot. They nicknamed him "Nerdy Ferdy." Ferdy was really really smart and he wanted to be just like his uncle Actual Factual, a scientist. That's where the name came from and because he dressed like a nerd too. Too-tall was a big bully to Ferdy. Queenie, (Too-tall's girlfriend) thought Ferdy was cute and really nice. That put Ferdy in a really good mood. One day, Too-tall invited Ferdy to play dodge ball with him and his friends. To find out what happens next, well, I guess you're going to have to read it to figure out what happens next! If I was rating this book I would give it a 4, because I thought it was a very well written book and interesting to read. The events in this book are just like real situations at school and solutions can be learned from.

A fine book. Jan. 24 2012
By CFT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have to admit that I wrote this review to contend with Mrs. Burritt's review below me. The problem she has with this book and this series in general is that they are 'harsh'; to which I respond, yes, of course they are, because they are written for older readers than the regular picture book series. The reason why most if not all good stories are interesting are because there are conflicts involved, obstacles to be overcome by our protagonists. As for Brother Bear thinking violent thoughts towards Ferdy, he's a kid, he's never going to seriously consider taking a knife to Ferdy (although seeing how rude and snobbish Ferdy is it's very easy to sympathise with Brother), Brother Bear isn't perfect, that's what makes him interesting and easy to relate to.

Ultimately the book is good and a fairly realistic portrayal of Kids and their attitudes towards intellectuals, if that's 'harsh' then so be it.

A Terrible Book Jan. 10 2012
By JBurritt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'm very disappointed in this book, as well as several others in the Big Chapter Books series. My daughter loves the Berensstain Bears, and I appreciate that they are innocent yet contain good messages. These books, however, are simply too harsh. In Nerdy Nephew, for example, Brother Bear is so angry near the beginning of the book that there is a picture of him with a thought bubble over his head depicting a gun, knife, bottle of poison, and a board with a nail sticking out. I found myself constantly editing the story as I read it in order to take out some of the more inappropriate content.
Great reading Aug. 8 2013

This kind of book teaches children lessons for which they can use later in real life. This type of book gets them ready for reading in the future.
