About the Author

The Berenstain Bears are celebrating their 50th Anniversary in 2012.

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 340 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 260 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.

It will be a fabulous addition to any Christmas, winter season, holiday gathering reading library.

Loved reading this book to my 5 and 6 year old girls, and I found my 11 year old son reading it to his sisters many times over the holidays.

That sound you hear, that's a mother's child-like heart sighing in contentment with memories of my own family Christmases as well as dreams and hopes about the ones to come for me and mine. This is a general market publication and not part of the Christian Berenstain Bears books (like from Zondervan) so there is no mention of the nativity or Christ in Christmas, but everything else is there. From my opinion as a Christian mother, I wouldn't hesitate to throw this one in the bin to read and re-read every holiday season. Equally, there is no mention of other December-time holidays in other beliefs, so any family will not feel as they have to take away but can just add on their own themes and traditions of faith. There are only pluses in this book with no negatives in my opinion. Great for school, library, read alouds, family or anybody to have for their shelf. (To my knowledge Living Lights Christian message readers come from Zondervan, while all sorts of moral and valuable general market reads are available from main publishers such as Random House and HarperCollins Children's.)

Getting my hands on this I am of the opinion there should be many more Berenstain Bears books in this size [8.5x11]. It is perfect for a lap read to hold and snuggle, or hold turned around for a group storytime. Are there more like this that I do not know about? Maybe an encyclopedia or what-not? I have found out about The Berenstain Bears' Big Book of Science and Nature and I cannot wait to get my copy I pre-ordered with the new 2013 edition from Dover. (Other suggestions, I'm all ears!)

This book is so full and fun for a full read through, or a bit here and then -- now and later.

My 5 year old loves all the Bearenstein Bear collection. This is not her favorite but still good enough to get requested multiple nights at bedtime

My mother read all the Berenstain Bear books to me as a kid - and I am delighted to read them to my kids. My kids love them just as much as I did. And the books are just as good as when they started writing them. A big Thank you to the Berenstain family!

Very cute Christmas book in one of our children's favourite series...it wasn't as good as I was expecting, but all of our kids like it so it'll do for it's purpose. I still prefer all of the original Berenstain Bear books...the ones I read growing up in the 80s, but this one is cute and fits nicely with the rest of our collection of Christmas books.
