Jan Berenstein, co-creator of the Berenstein Bears died.  This makes me very sad.  Some of my favorite reading memories growing up were reading her books.  My favorite and one I remember best is “Inside, Outside, Upside Down.”

Yes, I know, oh the irony of a would-be writer’s fond memories of a childhood book about grammar.  But to a kid, it is not a book about grammar.  It is a book about a kid, being precocious and unknowingly getting into a bit of trouble while introducing children to the concept of prepositions and prepositional phrases.

The world of children’s literature suffered a huge loss today, but we are lucky that that we will always have the Berenstein Bear legacy in the books that she and her husband created.

Thank you Jan Berenstein.
