much impact his life had on his writing. Discussion Stan Berenstains full name is Stanley Melvin Berenstain, and he was born in Philadelphia September 29, 1923 (Martin, 2005). When he
was a youngster he demonstrated his artistic talent "by painting a huge, utterly unappreciated boxing mural on the living room wall" (Martin, 2005). He met Janice Grant, whom he would
later marry, when they were both art students at the Philadelphia Museum School of Industrial Art (Martin, 2005). During WWII, Berenstain worked as "an artist in the Army, doing detailed
