Stan and Jan Berenstain created a series of children's books called the Berenstain Bears back in 1962.  Their first book published was the The Big Honey Hunt.

Odds are over the last 50 years  you, your parents, and your children have all read a Berenstain Bear Book.   Stan Berenstain passed away in 2005 at the age of 82 and his wife followed him in death on Friday at the age of 88 after suffering a massive stroke.

The Berenstains left behind a legacy that will last forever.  Their Berenstain Bears taught kids a lesson with each story.  Stories about life including eating too much junk food, going to the dentist, doing your homework and watching too much TV, the list goes on and on and on.

I remember fondly the Berenstain Bears books as well as the TV show.

Rest in Peace Berenstains, thank you for you lovely books that spanned the generations.
