The Berenstain Bears-All Things Bright and Beautiful

Press Release

The Bear Cubs learn from their Sunday school teacher that God's Earth is precious and will stay that way only if we care for it.

Missus Ursula, the Sunday school teacher, takes her Sunday school class on a nature walk to appreciate God’s bright and beautiful creation. Includes a sheet of colorful stickers!

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.
