I have very fond memories of the Berenstain Bears. My mom used to read to us all the time but Friday nights were the ultimate in bedtime stories. The bears made the reading list. We always had a bath on Friday nights and we had to get through that ordeal first. :drama: In the winter my dad would build a fire in the wood burning stove and have it ready for us. After bathtime we would sit around the stove in our fuzzy pajamas while my mother read to us.

I loved the Berenstain Bears as a child! Every Sunday, my mother would go grocery shopping and she would buy me one of the books from the supermarket. RIP. :(
