  1. Children’s books are underrated.
  2. Not enough people remember the Berenstain Bears series

There were many Berenstain Bears books but The Berenstain Bears and the Big Road Race always sits clearest in my mind. Following the same storyline as The Tortoise and the Hare, brother bear drives a beat up red car in a road race. While all the other contestants are driving Mercedes-like box cars, brother bear drives a shoddy little lemon of a car that goes “putt-putt-putt” as it rounds the last bend to the finish line.

Onomatopoeia at it’s finest, this story, not The Tortoise and the Hare, always comes to mind when I am angry at my work.

I’m going to get there one step at a time. Putt-putt-putt.

      me too! and for spelling, even when looking up their title of the book, i didn’t know how to spell “berenstain.” although it’s kinda cute in being so unconventional.
