Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Mike is married to Andrea, and they have three children. They live in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks a lot like Bear Country.

My Review:
Another one my children loved! This one is, once again, filled with eye catching illustrations that flow with the story. This book has Brother and Sister bear wondering about their courage and about David&Goliath. A lesson in courage is stressed when Brother and Sister face the school bully and his grizzly gang. God’s message to children of standing up and letting His light shine through no matter the problem really stands out in this 5 star children’s book. Definitely recommended to everyone with young children or a Sunday School class.
