KIRKUS REVIEW

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. He is as stubborn as Donald Duck, not as ill-tempered and nearly as amusing. This time, he's choosing a picnic site and each attempt to settle and eat is disastrous until they finally go home to enjoy themselves. This is becoming a universal experience as traffic increases and open land disappears. As usual, the Berenstains' broad color cartoons and simple, rhyming text provide good practice for easy reading and gentle teasing.
