Stan and Jan Berenstain were both born in 1923 in Philadelphia.&#160;&#160;They didn't know each other as children, but met later at school, at the Philadelphia College of Art.&#160;&#160;They liked each other right away, and found out that the both enjoyed the same kinds of books, plays, music and art.&#160;&#160;During World War II, Stan was a medical assistant in the Army, and Jan worked in an airplane factory.&#160;&#160;When the war was over, they got married and began to work together as artists and writers, primarily drawing cartoons for popular magazines.&#160;&#160;After having their two sons Leo and Michael, the Berenstains decided to write some funny children's books that their children and other children could read and enjoy.&#160;&#160;Their first published children's book was called <b><i>The Big Honey Hunt</i></b>.&#160;&#160;It was about a family of bears, who later became known as the "Berenstain Bears."&#160;&#160;<br><br><br> Stan and Jan planned all of their books together. They both wrote the stories and created the pictures.&#160; They continued to live outside of Philadelphia in the country.&#160; There are now over 300 Berenstain Bears books.
