Mike Berenstain

Mike Berenstain is an author and illustrator of children's books. He is the son of Stan and Jan Berenstain, creators of the popular Berenstain Bears series of picture books. Like Stan and Jan before him, Mike draws on his own experiences as a parent (and, now, grandparent) to inspire the family themes he writes about--including Gifts of the Spirit, a new line of faith-based books featuring the Berenstain Bears. He lives and works in the rolling countryside of Eastern Pennsylvania--a place that looks very much like Berenstain Bear Country.
