  It is summer time, and Henry and Mudge are going to have a picnic in the park. Henry puts together a picnic lunch, and they are soon in the park having a great time. Henry eats his jelly sandwich and his gives Mudge pieces of popcorn. Then something awful happens. Henry gets stung by a bee. It is really painful, and Henry cannot help crying. Thankfully, Henry has Mudge with him, and the big dog does his best to comfort the little boy.

  In this charming Henry and Mudge story, Cynthia Rylant perfectly captures the simple joys of summer days. In the three stories, Henry and Mudge go on a picnic, Mudge gets a bath, and Henry and Mudge have a grand imaginary adventure on a green hill.

  With a text that challenges and engages young readers, this is a perfect title for children who are learning how to read by themselves.
