This is the story of four friends Ashok, Bharath, Nirmal and Aryan who were to go on a school picnic to Ooty. With colourful illustrations, the book paints a beautiful picture of not just Ooty but also the events of a school picnic. The Progressive Reader Series is an intermediate step before our readers become comfortable reading novels and more text-filled books. The colourful illustrations will keep them engaged while the plot is something they can identify with. That’s not all, this story has an important moral too. It will help your little kid understand the importance of punctuality.
