Chapter One

It was springtime in Bear Country, and Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear were thinking about Easter. Actually, they were thinking about Easter candy. They loved Easter candy—there were so many different kinds! They were even thinking about it on their way to Sunday school one fine spring morning.

"My favorite Easter candy is chocolate bunnies," said Brother.

"My favorite is marshmallow chicks," said Sister.

"Jelly beans!" cried Honey Bear.

Their Sunday school teacher, Missus Ursula, overheard them. "I like the black jelly beans best," she smiled. "But, you know, there's much more to Easter than chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks, and jelly beans—black or otherwise."

"Sure, we know that," said Brother.

"Sure," said Sister.

"Sure!" said Honey.

"Oh?" said Missus Ursula. "Then why don't you tell the class all about Easter?"

"Well," said Brother, scratching his head, "it's about stuff in the Bible."

"Yeah," agreed Sister. "Bible stuff."

"Stuff!" nodded Honey.

"Hmmm," said Missus Ursula. "Maybe it's time we learned a little more about this 'Bible stuff.' It happens that the cubs in the next class are about to put on a play called The Easter Story."

"Can we watch, Missus Ursula?" the cubs asked.

"Just what I was about to suggest," she said.

Meet the Author

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. Though Stan died in 2005, and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Bear adventures from the family home and studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.
