Overview

The Berenstain Bears and the Bad Influence by Jan Berenstain, Stan Berenstain, Mike Berenstain

Sister Bear and her new friend, Miranda, make a lot of bad decisions—riding down Dead Bear's Hill, eating Ben's apples, running through Mizz McGrizz's tulips. When Mama Bear finds out about these things, she wants Sister to stop playing with their new neighbor. But is it really all Miranda's fault?

About the Author

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 370 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 300 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.

Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Berenstain Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania.


Stan & Jan Berenstain began writing the Berenstain Bears series in 1962, with The Big Honey Hunt. Since then more than 250 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and sales of their series have exceeded 260 million copies. Stan and Jan have left behind a legacy of arguably the best-selling children’s book series ever. Making the books has long been a family affair, with son Mike writing and illustrating new stories about everyone’s favorite bear family.

Once again, the Berenstain Bears are able to give parents and kids a good dose of benevolent wisdom and empathy without the lecturing or sappiness typical of many other children's books. I buy these books with the intention of helping my kids with issues they are facing or may face in the future, but I nearly always find that they help me adjust my perspective as well, so we all benefit.
