Dear Berenstain Family,
My condolences to you. I was sad to hear of Jan's passing. What a wonderful soul..
Berenstain books were some of my favorites growing up. Always made me smile, and so easy to get lost in. I remember discovering them in my elementary school library when I was about 10 years old. I wondered why I hadn't seen them when I was 'little'. Not wanting to miss out, I read every one I could get ahold of. It also helped having a younger brother and pointing out to my mom which books we borrow from the library for 'him'.
I sought out Berenstain books at the public library when I had children of my own. They were my 'go to' books. Great family stories. Always a positive message to learn--for any age.
My now grown-up children also have very fond memories Berenstain books. Their books are saved to hand down one day : )
Thank you to the Berenstain Family for sharing Stan and Jan with so many children, and the child in all of us. They truly helped make the world a better place. Although they are not with us, Stan and Jan's legacy will live on in the stories, and memories of so many.
Thank-you, Stan and Jan Berenstain
