The Berenstain Bears The Bears' Picnic
Stan Berenstain, Jan Berenstain
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
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.

Where are we going on our picnic, Dad? To the very best place in the world, my lad! Now you remember this spot, my dear. When we were young, we picnicked here. Papa, I do not like to complain, but your wonderful spot is next to a train! Where are we going now, Papa Bear? Is there another wonderful spot
somewhere? Don’t pester me with questions, please. There’s a place I know right in those trees. It is everything a picnic spot should be. And no one remembers it is here but me. What a spot! What a spot! So quiet! So cool! Just as it was when I was in school. We had a school picnic and I won first place for eating the most pie in a pie-eating race. Pop, this spot may be very fine, but look what it says on that big sign! Dad, can you find us another spot? Are we having a picnic today, or
not? Now stop asking questions! Be quiet! Stop stewing! Your father knows what he is doing. To pick a spot that is just the right one, you have to be very choosy, my son. Nothing can bother our picnic here! Lay out the picnic things, my dear. I do not like to say so, Dad, but another good spot has just gone bad. I hope there’s another good spot you know. But how much farther do we have to go? Why don’t you use your eyes, Small Bear? There’s a perfect place right over there! The grass is
green. The air is sweet. Lay out the lunch, and take a seat. Hooray! At last we’re going to eat! Well … this place is good. I wasn’t wrong. But I know one better. Let’s move along. Now take this perfect piece of ground. No one but us for miles around! Pop, you picked the best spot yet. But how can we picnic with that jet? I am very hungry, Pop! When is this spot-picking going to stop? I am getting tired. My feet hurt, too. Any old spot here ought to do. Please, Pop, please, can’t we
