About the Author
Mike Berenstain is an author and illustrator of children’s books. He is the son of Stan and Jan Berenstain, the creators of the popular Berenstain Bears series of picture books. Like Stan and Jan before him, Mike draws on his own experiences as a parent (and now as a grandparent) to inspire the family themes he writes about—including those in Gifts of the Spirit, a new line of faith-based hardcover and activity books featuring the Berenstain Bears. He lives and works in the rolling countryside of Eastern Pennsylvania—a place that looks very much like Bear Country.
