Contributor Bio(s): Stan and Jan Berenstain were both born in 1923 in Philadelphia.  They didn't know each other as children, but met later at school, at the Philadelphia College of Art.  They liked each other right away, and found out that the both enjoyed the same kinds of books, plays, music and art.  During World War II, Stan was a medical assistant in the Army, and Jan worked in an airplane factory.  When the war was over, they got married and began to work together as artists and writers, primarily drawing cartoons for popular magazines.  After having their two sons Leo and Michael, the Berenstains decided to write some funny children's books that their children and other children could read and enjoy.  Their first published children's book was called The Big Honey Hunt.  It was about a family of bears, who later became known as the "Berenstain Bears".  

Over 300 children's books later, Stan and Jan planned all of their books together.  They both wrote the stories and created the pictures.  They continued to live outside of Philadelphia in the country.

This collection comprises six previously published books. Each predictable story focuses on family relationships, from "The Week at Grandma's" to "Baby Makes Five" to "The Papa's Day Surprise." The Berenstains' familiar cartoon illustrations accompany the message-y texts.
