Co-creator of the beloved Berenstain Bears series for children, Jan Berenstain passed away Feb. 24, 2012. Because of Jan’s love and devotion to children and the books they read, the Berenstain family would be grateful for your donations to Reading Is Fundamental in Jan’s memory.
The Berenstain Bears series Jan created with her husband, Stan, focused on family relationships and challenges children face. At the time of Jan’s death, more than 340 Berenstain Bears titles had been published. In a 2011 AP interview, Jan said, “It’s wonderful to do something you love for so many years. Not everyone does that.”
To honor her memory, the Berenstain family wants to give kids something they know Jan loved – books. Your gift to RIF will help Jan’s legacy live on.
