“But there were some things they didn’t agree on.”
Stan Berenstain, The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Teasing

“So the Scouts went to work
setting up camp--
raising the tent,

filling the lamp,

building the fire,
getting it lit.

Jane took time
to explore a bit.

She collected some leaves.
She studied some seeds.
That’s when she heard
a voice in the weeds.

Chuckling and talking
to himself in there
was--you guessed it--
Papa Q. Bear!

“This trick will be fun,”
Papa Bear said
as he pulled the sheet
over his head.

“Hmm,” said Jane
as she tiptoed away.
“This is a game
that two can play!”

Then using twigs
and leaves as a base,
she started to make
what looked like…

A FACE!”
Stan Berenstain, The Berenstain Bears and the Ghost of the Forest

“When Sister Bear received a beautiful golden locket for her birthday, she was surprised and pleased. It was shaped like a heart, and it had her name on it. “Happy birthday, dear!” said Mama and Papa Bear, giving her a big hug.”
Stan Berenstain, The Berenstain Bears and the Golden Rule
