Sad news, odd timing.

Just hours after posting about reading her books as a child, I’m sad to hear about the death of Jan Berenstain, co-author of the Berenstein Bears series of children’s books. She was inspiring and her legacy will no doubt live on. I’m grateful for her.



Here’s an excerpt from the article:


Jan Berenstain, the children’s author who with her husband created the Berenstain Bears, whose winsome antics filled more than 300 picture books and helped guide millions of young readers through the vicissitudes of childhood, died Feb. 24 at a hospital near her home in Bucks County, Pa. She was 88.
