Stan & Jan Berenstain began writing and illustrating books for children in the early 1960s, when their two sons, Michael and Leo, were young readers, themselves. They lived on a hillside in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, a place that still looks a lot like Bear County, where they could see deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, squirrels, and woodchucks through their studio window almost every day—but no bears. The Bears lived inside their hearts and minds.
The Berenstains' sons are all grown up now. Michael as an illustrator and author who works with mother, Jan, in creating new Berenstain Bears books. Stan and Jan have four grandchildren. Some of them can even draw pretty good bears. With more than two hundred books in print, along with videos, television shows, and even Berenstain Bears exhibits at major museums, it's hard to tell where the Bears end and the Berenstains begin!
