R.I.P. Jan Berenstain

Jan Berenstain, beloved co-author and co-illustrator of The Berenstain Bears books, passed away on Friday. For many young readers, the books Jan wrote and illustrated with her husband Stan opened up our worlds. We were introduced to a lovely family of bears who lived in a tree house. I remember dreaming about living in their tree house.

It seems only appropriate that last night when Claire couldn’t get to sleep that we turned on the TV and watched the Berenstain Bears. She seemed to like it just as much as I did then.
