"Simple, rhyming text provides good practice for easy reading."--Kirkus.  
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
One of my childhood favorites!  Jan 20, 2008
This is one of my alltime favorite books from my childhood! The best part about the book is the illustrations! Most of the pictures seem to be geared toward the grown-ups reading the book, not just cute drawings for the children. Especially the little backround illustrations and Mother Bear's expressions---hysterical! Many of the older Berenstain books seemed to have that underlying adult humor--- kinda like The Simpsons does nowadays. I think they wanted the grown-ups to enjoy the books as much as the kids. In my opinion, the Bears books of today (as well as the TV cartoon program) are benign, and dull compared to the witty books written when I was a kid.
the bears picnic  Mar 30, 2007
the book the Bears picnic is a really good children book. I don't think older kids would still like it that much, but it teaches a preally good lesson. The lesson in that story was that never to give up. the bear never gave up on where the perfect place for a picnic was, and after all his hardwork he finally found a perfect picnic place which was his home. I really recommend little kids to read this.even though is kids didn't want to walk anymore he continued to try to find the perfect spot.
Great book but OUTDATED for our times  Apr 2, 2006
While I enjoy reading this book to my 2.5 year old, the chauvinistic illustrations really get under my skin. This book and the illustrations are simply out of date for our times. The mama has no say at all, it's a dialog between the papa and the little one. The mama is even carrying the picnic basket!! One of the illustrations, the papa and little one are way ahead running away from the mosquitoes (like little babies), while the mama (carrying the picnic basket) is fighting off the mosquitoes by herself.
I probably would have enjoyed this book more 40 years ago :)
The Bears' Picnic  Aug 22, 2005
My daughter loved it. She's 4 and just learning to read. The words are simple enough for her to read most of it herself and the story is interesting enough for her to want to read it.
The Bears Picnic  Oct 2, 2003
I thought this book was cute for kids between the ages of 4-8. Its not a learning book, but its cute and it also rhymes, what kind of kid doesnt like a rhyming book? I read this book when i was younger, I thought it was so funny how they had to keep leaving the "perfect picnic spot". Now that I'm older I don't think its as funny. But it will keep any child occupied, i would recommend this book to any young child.
