Co-creator of The Berenstain Bears series, Jan Berenstain has died on February 24th at age 88. The first Berenstain Bears book was published in 1962 and since that time more than 330 books have been published! They have sold more than 260 million copies!
I know that I’ve checked out armloads myself for my sons who each went through a stage where they loved the familiarity of the stories and the fact that there were so many titles in the series. It is a life well-led that has touched so many children.
