Maybe it was The Berenstain Bears and the New Baby or Go To the Dentist or Get in a Fight.....there is something for everyone. Children's fears, anxieties and experiences all addressed by a pair of sweet, sassy, thoughtful bears. Corny? Sure. Loved? Absolutely.
We have some, what I imagine could be called "vintage", Berenstain paperbacks in our house. I love reading them and my kids are always listening with mouths agape (that means they've been pulled right into the tale) and it amazes me that decades after they were first crafted by the husband and wife creative team, these stories still so clearly resonate.
