My Thoughts: I love the Berenstain Bears books. I loved the first generation books and these second generation books are every bit as good. Same quality story, same quality art, same quality high gloss paper … and just a little bit more. The family values and life lessons are still in there, but now they are tied to Bible precepts. In this particular story, the cubs learn to take pride in doing their chores. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might. Ecclesiastes 9:10

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. Mike is married to Andrea, and they have three children. They live in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks a lot like Bear Country.
