The quest for picnic perfection will delight readers in this classic Beginner Book edited by Dr. Seuss. When the Berenstain Bears set out to find the perfect spot for a picnic, Father Bear says he knows just the place. But each ideal location turns out to be a complete disaster, with a train roaring past or hordes of mosquitoes. At last they find a place with no pesky crowds or noisy planes, and nary a mosquito . . . until it starts to rain. With The Bears’ Picnic, literary legends Stan and Jan Berenstain provide a red-and-white-checked tablecloth to enhance a giggle-filled escape.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

From the Hardcover edition.

About Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain

See more books from this Author
Stan and Jan Berenstain were both born in 1923 in Philadelphia. They didn't know each other as children, but met later at school, at the Philadelphia College of Art. They liked each other right away, and found out that the both enjoyed the same kinds of books, plays, music and art. During World War II, Stan was a medical assistant in the Army, and Jan worked in an airplane factory. When the war was over, they got married and began to work together as artists and writers, primarily drawing cartoons for popular magazines. After having their two sons Leo and Michael, the Berenstains decided to write some funny children's books that their children and other children could read and enjoy. Their first published children's book was called The Big Honey Hunt . It was about a family of bears, who later became known as the "Berenstain Bears". Over 50 children's books later, Stan and Jan still plan all of their books together-both write the stories, and both write the pictures. They live outside of Philadelphia in the country.

Blandly and grandly ignoring the critics who are demanding dignity for fathers in stories and on TV serials, the Berenstains have made Papa Bear a well-intentioned bumbler in The Bike Lesson and The Big Honey Hunt.
