Berenstain Bears, A Family Affair

In this January 25, 2011 photo, Mike Berenstain and his mother, Janice Berenstain , look at an earlier Berenstain Bears book as they work in their studio in Solebury, Pa. It used to be husband and wife Jan and Stan Berenstain creating the books, but their son Mike took over when his father died, thus continuing the tradition that started with the first book in 1962.

A great article in the Washington Post titled, 50 Years Along, Berenstain Bears A Family Affair, about how Mike Berenstain, Jan and Stan Berenstain's son, now collaborates with his mother in writing and illustrating new books at the same studio in an idyllic part of Bucks County, outside Philadelphia, that serves as inspiration for the books' setting.

My daughter used to love to be read Berenstain Bears books at bedtime. I can't believe they are still doing it - she's 22.
