|About the Contributor(s)||Mike Berenstain
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bears 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 his studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.

Each of the 40 recipes in The Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook has a large, full-color picture of the completed product on the page opposite the recipe.
The recipes are all very easy, but I must admit that I was hoping to find more recipes from scratch (rather than using "ingredients" like pre-packaged refrigerated biscuits). Because this is a "country" cookbook, there are many recipes that are based on meat and carbs - not a wide variety of veggie-based recipes. Even still, I can't wait to try out the "Bear-y Good Mac & Cheese"!
At the end of The Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook you will find a mealtime prayer, "Sweet Facts About Honey", and some basic kitchen conversions (tablespoons to cups, etc.).
I love when kids are encouraged to help out in the kitchen and adding in the lovable Berenstain bears characters only makes this more appealing for kids. My kids have already pointed out a few recipes that they would like to try from The Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook.

Do you have kids that enjoy being in the kitchen with you? If yes, then you should pick up this great book with many fun ideas in it. I love the pictures and the directions are super easy to understand for young readers and eager learners in the kitchen.
My daughter is eager to make the race car creation! I am just excited when the day comes that they are able to cook me a meal! :) Okay... I am not in a hurry for that day as they are already growing up too fast! (Posted on 4/6/2015)

This cookbook is adorable! Beloved characters serving up breakfast, lunch, dinner, and desert, with a special prayer, measurement chart, and info on a bear's favorite food - honey! - combine with yummy, easy recipes perfect for introducing kids to a love of cooking and baking.
I do wish the recipes were a little healthier - lots of sugar and pre-packaged items - but it's better than most, and not meant to be used daily, so it's mostly fine. It does limit how much my family will use it, but several of the recipes look amazing! (Posted on 3/27/2015)

I'm happy to see this cookbook for children; with so many children wanting to cook these days, The Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook is a great tool to help them learn to do so with fun and their "friends" the Berenstain Bears! The Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook is a great cookbook for children to have at home, and at grandma's house because if they have it, chances are they will be spending time in the kitchen learning to cook!
