Let's have an appreciation of the Berenstain Bears. At our house we certainly bought plenty of those books because the kids really liked them. Each book had a solid story and interesting characters. Read about how the work of making these books carries on here and see one of their sites here. Scroll down to see how much they did in 2010 here--lots! For a few years they've even done religious slanted books with Zondervan here. The Berenstain Bears are a heck of a brand. And good, too.
