I love the Berenstain Bears- we had a million of them growing up and I always loved the fact that they lived in a tree. I was sad to find out that Jan Berenstain died over the weekend at the age of 88 after being apart of over 300 books.
I often want to buy kids books based on areas I feel they need improvement in. For example, The Berenstain Bears and Too Much TV for the couch potatoes. Or The Berenstain Bears Get the Gimmies for those that are spoiled. My parents bought us The Barenstain Bears and the New Baby when my mom got pregnant with one of my sisters. Doesn't matter where you're at in life- there's a Berenstain Bears book for you. Her sons plans to continue the franchise.
