Description

"Beautiful day!"
"Not a cloud in the sky!"
"A-picnicking we go!"

When Picnic was first published in 1984, readers fell in love with Emily Arnold McCully's lush watercolors and charming story about a little mouse who is reunited with her family. Now the Caldecott artist has added words and painted bigger illustrations in her signature whimsical style to accommodate a larger-sized read-aloud book. But what has not changed is a timeless story about the hurt of being lost, and the joy of being found again.
