School-Based Programs

Berenstain Bears

First grade

The book “The Berenstain Bears Learn About Strangers” by Stan and Jan Berenstain familiarizes young children with the concept of strangers, including who would be considered a stranger and what to do if they encounter strangers. In the book, Mama Bear uses apples to demonstrate that you can’t tell whether someone is “good” or “bad” just by looking at them, reinforcing how important it is to be cautious with strangers.

After reading the book to a class, a CAN Council prevention education coordinator will talk with students about what they learned, ask them questions for comprehension and cover additional safety information related to encounters with strangers.
