The Berenstain Bears are 50 years old
The Washington Post celebrates 50 years of the Berenstain Bears books. As a parent of two girls, I can only say that I detest these books. I know I shouldn’t say awful things about a series of children’s books that mean well but why do they preach about what is right and wrong all the time? My youngest asks me to read The Berenstain Bears and the Bad Habit again and again – and I do it through gritted teeth. What’s wrong with biting your fingernails any way?
