FEATURED EBOOK

When the lights go out, every Bear is afraid of something
Even in the sunny land of Bear Country, spooky sights lurk in the shadows. Some bears are scared of bugs, some of mice, some of the eerie pictures that flicker on the late-night television movie. For Papa Bear, the scariest thing in the world comes in the mailbox: bills! But whenever Brother, Sister, Papa, or Mama gets scared, someone in the family is there to turn on the light switch and show that everything is all right. In this delightful Berenstain Bears poem, the Bears learn never to make fun of someone else’s fears, because the next time the lights go off, you could be the scaredy-bear!

This is a fixed-format ebook, which preserves the design and layout of the original print book.

ABOUT Stan and Jan Berenstain

  • BIOGRAPHY

    Stan Berenstain (1923–2005) and Jan Berenstain (1923–2012) were a husband-and-wife cartooning team best known for creating the internationally beloved Berenstain Bears. Both born in Philadelphia, they met on the first day of art school, and were married after World War II. Inspired by their children’s love for Dr. Seuss, the Berenstains created a cartoon version of their own family, and with The Big Honey Hunt (1962) began a series that would stretch to more than two hundred volumes. Starring Papa Bear, Mama Bear, Sister Bear, and Brother Bear, the books quickly became popular for their evocative drawings and simple explanations of wholesome themes. The stories sold more than 200 million copies worldwide and have been adapted as movies, television shows, and amusement park attractions. The Berenstains’ younger son, Mike, has overseen the series since his parents passed away, ensuring that it will continue to be popular with each new generation of young readers.
