Saturday’s Book: A Homage to Jan Berenstain

I just read that Jan Berenstain, co-creator of the delightful Berenstain Bears series of books for children, passed away recently, at the age of 88.

I was not aware that the first books had come out in the 60’s, as I don’t remember them from my own childhood. However, I enjoyed the books with my first niece and nephew in the 80’s, then with my own boys in the 90’s and am now enjoying these books again with my little niece and nephew, born in the 21st  century!

Books that retain their appeal for children over such a span of time have my sincere admiration!

  1. Hi Naomi!

    How wonderful – a post on Jan Berenstein! Her book series is one of my niece’s favourites – and my little students love them! I absolutely love all the messages at the end of the stories. I was so sad when I heard she died : (

    Thank you for your lovely Saturday night post!

    Best wishes,

    It’s a treat to read these books to a child!
