Text and Images from Where’s My Sandwich?
I am very excited today. Archie and I are going to the nature reserve for a picnic. We love the nature
reserve. There are many animals to see and a pretty river and open spaces to run and play
I have packed fruit, lemonade, a cake and best of all – sandwiches. Archie loves my sandwiches.
When we arrived at the nature reserve I started to set up the picnic while Archie chased some birds.
