Today you will be grieving. Jan Berenstein, writer of Berenstein Bears, has died today. So many of those books were parts of your childhood. Hooray, hooray we're on our way; Our summer holiday starts today" comes directly from the Berenstein Bears Summer Holiday was family favorite as of course was "Inside, Outside, Upside Down"
In the Dr Suess stables and along very similar lines all the stories had strong moral overtones and were very cleverly written.
The couple (Stan died in 2005) wrote over 300 books so the news article said. One of their sons is set to continue the tradition and 19 new books are due to be published this year.
We were fortunate to have these stories in our family traditions.
