Warm, fuzzy memories with the Berenstain Bears

I was saddened to see the news this morning that Berenstain Bears co-creator Jan Berenstain died.

And then, of course, I began getting nostalgic about all the good times I've had with that furry family who lived in the Bear Country and taught me valuable lessons about junk food, sharing, going to the dentist and Christmas, among other things.

The memories I have of collecting those books and having my parents or grandparents read them to me at night rank among my fondest childhood memories.

And now, one of favorite parts of being a father is seeing Phoebe delight in having Kates or I read those very same books to her before she goes to bed at night.

The books live on.
