Jan Berenstain Passes away at 88

For all of us young and old who fell in love with the Berenstain Bear series, it is a sad day for Jan Berenstain’s fans. She passed away today at the age of 88 from a stroke.  Her husband Stan and her, were the author and illustrator of all the Berenstain books.  Their characters Papa, Mama, Sister and Brother Bear the stories taught preschoolers about social situations.  I remember when my children, Brian and Kendra were 2 and 3 1/2 I bought them all the Berenstain Bear books. We would read them for hours and enjoyed them very much.    We will miss Jan and the Berenstain Bear family.
