6th August Picnic Day

It is Picnic Day in the Northern territory of Australia on the first Monday of August. But it could be picnic day at school any day you care to organise one. Start with Freda Plans a Picnic by Stuart J. Murphy and have the children look at how to organise a picnic. Make lists, allocate jobs and collect what is needed. Then read! Collect together all your old favourite picnic books and then include more recent ones such as the fabulous Florentine and Pig Have a Very Lovely Picnic by Eva Katzler & Jess Mikhail
I found these in my library:
The Bears' Picnic by Stan and Jan Berenstain
The Lighthouse Keeper's Picnic by Ronda and David Armitage
Piglet's Picnic by Jessica Souhami
We're Going on a Picnic! by Pat Hutchins
The Bear's Water Picnic by John Yeoman & Quentin Blake
Ants at the Picnic by Michael Dahl
Polly's Picnic by Richard Hamilton & Sophy Williams
Lily's Picnic by Paul Rogers
Having a Picnic by Sarah Garland
