BROWNY BEAR'S PICNIC by Katharine Wood


Email this review


For the beginning reader and those newly initiated into the picnic ceremony, a sunny little tale of an animal picnic and an adventure with a wolf. The wolf's coming is fully prepared for at the start of the story, and since the animals -- Browny Bear, Sammy Squirrel, Chucky Woodchuck, and Bobby Raccoen -- knew exactly what to do, the wolf does not find them. All possible sources of discomfiture about the wolf are carefully side-stepped for the benefit of very young children, and the quiet, homey style, plus the understated lesson in minding one's mother, and the cuddly, soft pictures with amusing details by the author, make this excellent lullaby and schoolroom fare.
