Welber’s The Winter Picnic is about a willful boy who wants a picnic, even in the snow.

Adam is a city boy who wants to picnic even in the snow despite his mother’s protestations. Adam bundles up and plays picnic:  he makes plates, cups, and a bowl out of snow but then goes into the kitchen for some peanut butter and boysenberry jelly sandwiches and lemonade.
