Berenstein Bears is a classic, and this one is cute, with a great Christmas message. This did start to feel a tad long to me.

Who Illustrated The Berenstain Bears and the Joy of Giving

illustrator
Mike Berenstain

<p>Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bears 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 his studio in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks much like the sunny dirt road deep in Bear Country.</p>
