Bradley Mariska Bernstain Bears Historian

The Berenstain Bears This week we welcome Bradley Mariska, Associate Band Director for Farmington High School, and avid Berenstain Bears collector who has amassed the world’s largest Berenstain Bears collection on display at Sweet Reads in Austin Minnesota.  Bradley settles once and for all the controversy on if it’s Berenstain or Berenstein Bears and lets us in on the sordid side of the Bears.  We have dubbed Bradley the Official Bernstain Bears Historian!

His Holy Grail of Berenstain Bears collectibles is The Berenstain Bears Fun Book” (no. 3050), a small coloring/activity book published by Golden (1993).  So if you know where you can put your hands on this, let him know!
