Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

It's time for a routine check-up with Dr. Gert Grizzly. Sister Bear is brave about her booster shot, and Brother Bear is fine, but--achoo!--is that Papa Bear sneezing? "A light-hearted approach to the subject with straightforward information."--Appraisal.

This book helped both my girls through their scared-of-the-doctor phase that set in around the eighteen month mark. It is brilliant simplicity; it walks your child through a check-up and even tackles the scary vaccination issue by quantifying the pain rather than dismissing it.

“‘Will it hurt?’ asked Sister Bear. 'Sure, but not nearly as much as biting your tongue or bumping your shin. There all done.’”

I've read this book to them so many times that not only do I have it memorized, sometimes I can hardly stand to look at it. The doctor book again!? Ug!

Pair this book with a toy doctor kit and act out the story as it unfolds. Then watch as they use their new found understanding of check-ups to perform check-ups on you and their stuffed animals.
