The Pickwicks’ Picnic: A Counting Adventure

We rated this book:


It is hot and stuffy in the city, and the Pickwicks decide to pack up their pickup and head out of town. It is a good day to go to the shore for a picnic. The Pickwicks pack up everything they will need and get on their way. Driving along, they are passed by two blue scooters, three squeaky jeeps, four family vans, and other numerical groups of vehicles. Everyone is heading toward a big bridge that leads to the shore. The last group of vehicles is ten troopers’s cruisers that have the bridge blocked, and that stops everything. Everything, that is, except the Pickwicks, who unpack all their picnic gear and start a picnic party everyone can join.

Author Carol Brendler has written a cute story that will help little ones learn their numbers one to ten. Illustrator Renée Kurilla has filled the pages with charming cartoonish drawings with lots of details and cute dogs as all the characters. One might be bothered by the fact that the Pickwick youngsters are riding loose in the back of the pickup, and adult readers may have trouble explaining away that safety issue.
