About the Author:

Stan and Jan Berenstain were already successful cartoonists for magazines and adult humor books when they began writing children's books. The first story starring the bear family, The Big Honey Hunt, appeared in 1962. Since then, more than 370 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 300 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons' love of reading has become over the years arguably the best-selling children's book series ever.

Since their inception, the Berenstain Bears stories have expanded to include picture books, beginning readers, and chapter books--even a hit TV show on PBS. Writing and illustrating the books has become a Berenstain family affair. Mike joined with his parents as a creative team in the late 1980s. The Bear family has expanded over the years as well. Sister Bear arrived in 1974, and baby Honey joined the family in 2000.

Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Berenstain Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania.



Mike Berenstain lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where he continues to write and illustrate wonderful new adventures for Mama, Papa, Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–This offering does little to reassure children about a new experience. Basically, it gives a tour of a school and describes some activities. The principal is made of stern stuff and has a bench ...where naughty cubs wait,/sitting so quietly/awaiting their fate. Teacher Jane says, You know I've got eyes in the back of my head,' and, as illustrated, one cub imagines her with two sets of eyes. Teacher Bob introduces himself by saying, Third grade is hard./Third grade is tough./There's no more easy/First-gradish stuff.' The cadence of the verse and the bright, busy illustrations in typical Berenstain style are appealing, but some of the vocabulary will be challenging for kindergartners, who will probably not recognize themselves as ...doing their very best to cope. First- through third-graders will relate better to the setting and be able to read this book independently, but why would they want to? The text says, Though school is a challenge,/it can also be fun. True, but the only fun parts shown here are recess and going home. –Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ
