Both of my computers broke last week and I was in South Caroline for some school visits so I wasn't able to post anything. Anyhow, Jan Berenstain died today at the age of 88. Wow, she lived a long life! The first Berenstain Bear book, called The Honey Hunt, was published in 1962.
This is a film I remember from my childhood:
My sisters loved to collect the books. I wasn't that into them because I didn't like obvious messages. I was one of those kids who didn't like to be told what to do (still don't!). But I can certainly appreciate the books none the less.
I like this quote: “It’s wonderful to do something you love for so many years,” Jan Berenstain told the Associated Press last year. “Not everyone has that.”
