This past week we learned that Jan Berenstain, co creator of the beloved Berenstain Bear books, passed away. She and her late husband Stan, (1923 – 2005) published their first book, Berenstains’ Baby Book in 1951. As young parents they were inspired to write about the challenges that parents face. They realized over the years that some issues that families deal with never change, but their books remained current and included kids and the use of today’s technology.
The Berenstains have left us with many wonderful books since their first book featuring the bear family, published in 1962, titled “The Big Honey Hunt.” They were wonderful authors and wonderful parents. The Berenstain Bear stories will continue. Their two sons have plans to publish 19 more books this coming year.
