Bookbug Book of the Month: We're Going on a Picnic!
We're Going on a Picnic! by Pat Hutchins
It's a perfect day for a picnic so Hen picks some berries, Goose picks some apples and Duck picks some pears. Then the three friends set off to look for the perfect spot to enjoy their feast. But the three friends aren't the only ones who are hungry. As the picnic basket gets lighter and lighter, readers will be laughing harder and harder.
'This classic tale of a picnic that doesn't go exactly to plan is brilliant for little ones who will love spotting what a little mouse, squirrel and rabbit get up to when Hen, Goose and Duck aren't paying attention! Full of repetition which is great for younger children, there are lots of chances for them to join in with the story and guess what might come next. But with so much also happening in the pictures, this is the perfect story for talking about what's going on in the illustrations, and making up your own parts of the story together.'
