Synopsis

Synopsis

Saying grace gets Sister Bear wondering. “What’s God?” she asks Mama Bear. 
 
Mama Bear tries to answer, but each answer leads to another question. Just then, Gramps and Gran walk by, on their way to services at the chapel in the wood, so the whole Bear family decides to go along. While at services, Brother and Sister Bear have to sit still for a long time, but as their neighbors and family take turns expressing gratitude, they begin to understand. And though Sister Bear still has a question, Papa Bear has an answer ready. 
 
Literary legends Stan and Jan Berenstain’s First Time Books address many of the issues of childhood in simple, direct ways, opening the door for discussion and leaving room for parents to personalize each situation.

About Stan Berenstain

Stan Berenstain - The Berenstain Bears and the Big Question

Photo © Random House Children's Books

Stan and Jan Berenstain were already successful cartoonists for magazines and adult humor books when they began writing children's books. The first story starring the bear family, The Big Honey Hunt, appeared in 1962. Since then, more than 300 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 260 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons’ love of reading has become over the years arguably the best-selling children’s book series ever.

Since their inception, the Berenstain Bears stories have expanded to include picture books, beginning readers, and chapter books--even a hit TV show on PBS. Writing and illustrating the books has become a Berenstain family affair. Mike joined with his parents as a creative team in the late 1980s. The Bear family has expanded over the years as well. Sister Bear arrived in 1974, and baby Honey joined the family in 2000.

Since Stan's death at age eighty-two in 2005, Jan and Mike have continued to write and illustrate wonderful new adventures for Mama, Papa, Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear. They live in an area of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, which looks very much like the sunny dirt road in Bear Country.
