Fiction became reality for kindergartners at Roosevelt Elementary recently.

Teachers followed up on their lesson of a 1973 Robert Welber book called Winter Picnic with a cool blast of their own.


Approximately 60 5 and 6 year olds braved the 14-degree, windy conditions Friday for a real winter picnic on school grounds.

"We made them peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and chips, just like the little boy did in the book," said Kindergarten teacher Irene Skaaland.
