on the family picnic day.
When I was young, family picnics were the only time I could enjoy candies and chocolates, because they were rather expensive. Family picnic days remind me of those foods that I had when I was a kid. California rolls my mother made for me were always my favorite. Even children these days cannot eat whatever they want, though not always because of
financial difficulties; instead, children need a healthy diet. Regardless, family picnic days are still the happy days on which children can enjoy their favorite foods.
As I wrote this book, I hoped my son would experience the same excitement I felt when I was young. I have vivid memories of my picnic days, all of my favorite foods that I could eat on these special occasions, the excitement I experienced the night before and on the day of the picnic, and the surprises I found in my backpack, which was always filled with Mom’s love and care. I hope parents will share their warm memories of school picnic days with their kids through this story.
