I heard today that Jan Berenstain passed on. She and her husband, Stan, were the creators of the much-loved Berenstain Bears children's series of books.
I grew up listening to the tales of Momma, Poppa and their two cubs. In fact, I would be remiss if I didn't admit that the home the family lives in was an inspiration for the one I describe in the trilogy. They will always hold a very special place in my heart.
So, what about you? What children's books do you identify with childhood?
