Stan & Jan Berenstain began writing the Berenstain Bears series in 1962, with The Big Honey Hunt. Since then more than 250 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and sales of their series have exceeded 260 million copies. Stan and Jan have left behind a legacy of arguably the best-selling children's book series ever. Making the books has long been a family affair, with son Mike writing and illustrating new stories about everyone's favorite bear family.
