“What a beautiful day,” says Mom. “Wake up Nicholas.”

“Hello sun,” says Nicholas. “Good morning birds.”

“It’s a lovely day,” says Dad. “Let’s have a picnic by the river.”

“Can my friend Jacob come?” asks Nicholas.

“Don’t forget me. I love picnics!” says Donkey. “And me. I want to come too!” says Dog. “Follow us,” say the birds.

“I’ll race you to that tree,” Nicholas says.

“I won, I won,” says Donkey.

“Not fair,” says Nicholas. “You’ve got four legs.”

“Look what I can do,” says Nicholas.

“I bet you can’t do this,” says Jacob.

“Here’s our picnic spot,” says Dad.

“Race you to the water!” says Jacob.

“Come and eat, boys and girls,” says Mom.

“Time to go home,” says Mom. “Say goodbye to Jacob.”
