Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This oversized board book has foam-layered very sturdy pages which relate the story of an upcoming picnic as each of the increasingly larger pages is turned. The creatures are not realistic; they appear to be toys that were either photographed on grass or have been digitally manipulated. Ladybugs are searching for a snack, caterpillars are crawling across the grass, and field mice are also on the hunt. The ants are working while the frogs sit on lilypads, but the last spread shows everyone coming together to enjoy a picnic of a variety of fruits set on a blue checkered tablecloth. Cups appear at each place, but nowhere is there any sign of what they might be filled with. Colorful butterflies can be found on each page. Not a particularly exciting book.
