Picnicking is fun, but finding the best spot isn't always easy. Hen, Duck, and Goose find this to be true, but they are so focused on finding the right spot they don't realize they have "company". Children will find the humor in the unexpected guests stealing their packed lunch, and will see the lengths people go to in order to compromise. ( )

This is a cute story about a goose, a duck, and a hen that decide to go on a picnic. They choose various fruits and put them in a basket and walk along to find a picnic spot. With every spot they come across, another says they should keep walking to find a better spot. Eventually, all their fruit is gone and they end up back at home! In the end, they pick more fruits and stop at the first place they find.

I thought this book was really adorable! And the illustrations were nice, too! ( )

"We're going on a Picnic" is a picture book that uses repetition. It's about three friends; a Hen, Goose, and Duck wanting to go on a picnic and they picked their favorite fruit to put in the basket in take with them. Each place they stopped they didn't like so they kept moving on without realizing the little squirrel behind them taken the fruit out their basket till they get home. ( )

Hen,Goose, and Duck three friends decide to go on a picnic so they each pick their favorite fruit however they soon become too concerned in finding the best spot for a picnic they don't notice their picnic being stolen. This was a very silly book but it was fun to read and I can see it holding a child's interest really well. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688167993, Hardcover)

It was a perfect day for a picnic. Hen picked the berries, Goose picked the apples, and Duck picked the pears. Then they set out for the picnic. But young viewers will quickly discover that Hen, Goose, and Duck are not the only ones who like berries, apples, and pears! And as the picnic basket gets lighter and lighter, they will be laughing harder and harder.

Since the publication of Rosie's Walk in 1968, Pat Hutchins's name has been a household word wherever there are young lookers and listeners.
