Item description for The Berenstain Bears and the Missing Dinosaur Bone (Beginner Books(R)) by Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain...

Overview
When a bone is discovered missing from a new exhibit of a dinosaur skeleton, the little Bear detectives, along with their hound dog Snuff, embark on a merry chase to catch the culprit.

Publishers Description
The Bear Detectives come to the aid of Dr. Bear at the Bear Museum. With less than an hour to spare, the cubs must find the missing dinosaur bone so that everyone can enjoy the dinosaur exhibit. Illus. in full color.
"A bone is missing from the Bear Museum, and the cubs are determined to find it. Colorful drawings and the bear antics are always a hot item."--School Library Journal.
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 customers think about The Berenstain Bears and the Missing Dinosaur Bone (Beginner Books(R))?

The Berenstain Bears and the Missing Dinosaur Bone  Mar 10, 2006
Great book for young readers. Easy to read and understand. Great pictures to follow along with if unable to read.
 
Classic Beginner-Books Berenstain  Dec 30, 2004
The books that the Berenstains wrote for Beginner Books (which Dr. Seuss edited) are very different and, to me, much better than the stuff they've been cranking out since. They use much simpler vocabulary and shorter sentences, and are written in rhyme, which really helps hold my son's attention. The stories, too, are simpler, funnier and just plain more entertaining. This one is one of our favorites, with a really fun "Is That it? Nooooooo" storyline, and a cute surprise ending.
 
Who's got the bone?  Nov 11, 2001
I recently introduced my 5-year old nephew to the Berenstain Bears, who are among my favorite characters in children's literature. In "The Berenstain Bears and the Missing Dinosaur Bone," three young bears and their dog search for the missing museum article of the book's title.

Authors Stan and Jan Berenstain tell the story in fun, easy-to-read rhymes, such as this one: "A dinosaur bone is missing in there! 'Somebody took it!' said Dr. Bear." The rhymes are accompanied by whimsical illustrations that depict such sights as a totem pole, a mummy case, and the "Hall of Famous Bears." Parents and other adults should appreciate the gentle satiric touches. Another fine entry in a great series.

 
A great book to start your kids on the adventure trail !!  Oct 1, 1999
My son, who is 4 years old, loves this book from the first day the book arrived. Every night, we would read this book together and relive the adventure of the bear detectives as they look for the missing dinosaur bone. The other interesting area in this story is that the bears have only an hour to locate the bone in time for the museum opening. The ending is unexpected but funny. Recommended reading for all parents with kids who are beginning to read.
