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.

Campaigning bears Nov. 5 2012
By Madigan McGillicuddy - Published on
Format: Paperback
A less than dazzling entry into the Berenstain Bears franchise. Still, this book will be easy to recommend around Mother's Day, or during any election year. Simple, repetitive language and an easy to follow plot make this a comforting choice for very beginning readers to build confidence. Mama Bear is frustrated by the potholes on the road, and conceives of a plan to run for mayor. After an exciting campaign, where she gets carried away and begins to promise anything and everything, including "honey in every pot" and "salmon in every stream," Mama wins the race! A somewhat cynical ending shows Mama (like many politicians) overwhelmed and unable to make good on her campaign promises. I'd rate this one even a little lower, if it weren't for it's inexplicable kid appeal. I haven't met a kid yet who doesn't love Berenstain Bears!

Format: Kindle Edition
Berenstain Bears books have always been a favorite; and thus read and reread them often to my children and now grandbaby. The more recent ones (ones with baby Honey in them) aren't as good as the original ones. But still good.

This one the family sees things in the community that need fixed, and so Mama runs for mayor. She soon gets caught up on 'promises' and realizes that words are just what to do to fulfill those promises. This helps teach children to not promise something that they may not be able to fulfill.
Politics in Bear Country June 25 2012
By Margaret C. - Published on
Format: Paperback
Sometimes it is easier to talk about fixing problems. At least talk is definitely faster. In Mama for Mayor, Mama bear is unhappy with the condition of the Bear Country roads and decide she will fix them herself by running for mayor. The main of the book is about the election and it is only at the end when Mama seems to see words are easier than deeds that take time. Great for anytime, but would also be a great read to go along with a what people do all day theme.
