Like a lot of people, I grew up reading them. And now, I read them to my kids.
But here's something you may not have known about these classics: They've been slowly changing over the years. Don't panic! They've been changing in a good way. Here are eight changes that reflect some of the progress society has made:
1. First up: The cover got a makeover. It might seem subtle at first glance, but look closely.
2. Men can be flight attendants and women can be pilots. And, you know, they don't have to be hot.
3. Christmas isn't the only holiday people celebrate.
4.Mommy Bears are no longer expected to have breakfast prepared for Daddy Bears.
5.Because guess what?! Dads can cook, too! (Even Dad Bunnies.)
6.Helping professions aren't just for men.
7. Regular people need rescuing, too.
8."I" is for "ice cream" —and not stereotypical depictions of Native Americans.
