|Short Bio||Jan & Mike Berenstain
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Though Stan died in 2005, and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from the family home and studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.

- Review by Sally
Jan & Mike Berenstain have done a fantastic job in explaining the true meaning of Easter using the characters of Brother, Sister and Honey Bear. Those three loved Easter Candy. They couldn’t stop thinking about it. Their Sunday School Teacher Missus Ursula overheard them talking about it and told them she loved black jelly beans the most, but Easter was about more than candy. She asked her class if they knew the difference and their child-like answer was, yeah..It’s about Bible stuff. The Berenstains use a short Easter play to explain the true meaning of Easter from Jesus performing miracles, his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, his crucifixion, death, burial, resurrection and ascension. The End of the book has activities and questions from Brother and Sister Bear to help parents teach their young children. There is also a sticker page portraying the Easter Story.
This was an adorable book that I would highly recommend for any child from 4-7. You can’t go wrong with The Berenstain Bears.
Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book by the publisher, ZonderKidz, for an honest review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
