The Berenstain Bears
This bear family has been teaching children since 1962 when married couple Stan and Jan Berenstain created the family. While both have left us, their legacy will carry on in the form of over 300 books that have been issued in over 23 different languages. The books always addressed the concerns of children in a family atmosphere, one based largely on the lives of the creators' themselves. Like many families, the bears are funny, loving, and of course, slightly dysfunctional. They always help each other though, no matter what.
