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 250 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 260 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons' interest in children's books 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.

Since Stan's death at age eighty-two in 2005, Jan and Mike have continued to write and illustrate wonderful new adventures for Mama, Papa, Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear. They live in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, which looks a lot like Bear Country.

NARRATOR: It’s the March to Victory! Dateline: Hollywood. As our nation throws itself into our national defense everyone is eager to participate! Now five of the silver screen's biggest stars behind the camera have answered the call. Film directors John Ford, Frank Capra, William Wyler, George Stevens and John Huston all accept commissions in the Armed Forces. With such films as "The Battle of Midway", the "Why We Fight" series, and "Memphis Belle", these filmmakers go forth to document this global war. From places like the Pacific islands, Omaha Beach and Dachau their experiences will no doubt forever change how they see duty, sacrifice, cruelty, and the art of the motion picture. In the hands of superb journalist and storyteller Mark Harris these epic tales are woven together with enough grace and skill to rival the filmmakers he profiles. This has been The March to Victory!
