My 4 year loved me reading this hilarious children's book to her. It is narrated by a dill pickle who believes pickles get a bad deal in life. The illustrations are as fun as the jokes. Very entertaining and a joy to read.

My mom has an old record of the song teddy bears picnic that my son loves listening to. He's also is a pretty big fan of unicorns. This is just the perfect amalgamation of the two! Cute pictures and a classic story with a twist. What a great combination!

The little unicorns are going to have their big picnic. Its been a long day & they are all wore out.Lots of fun & at 6:00 PM mom/dad unicorn will come get them & take them home.I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.A very awesome book cover, great colored beautiful watercolor illustrations & proper font & writing style. A very well written children’s unicorn adventure story book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great children’s unicorn adventure movie, or a mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.Thank you for the free author; Roony K Press; BookSends; Amazon Digital Services LLC.; book Tony Parsons MSW (Washburn)

This is a wonderfully vibrant and upbeat rhythm book about unicorns shown with watercolors. This is a great team read book for the little ones. ( They follow along with their finger or they read a page you read a page.). This story is about all the unicorns holiday and celebration of going into the woods for a picnic. Enjoy!!y

Unicorn's PIcnic is a fun book to show what Unicorn's do in their spare time. Just a wonderful fantasy book to let a child get away from the worries of the world and just be a child. A must-have.
