Her eyes got bigger and bigger as she noticed Daddy Rabbit had a tiny backpack. But when Grandma saw what Daddy Rabbit took from his backpack, she was amazed. Her chin dropped and her mouth flew wide open. Grandma didn't make a sound lest she frighten them away.

The tiny baby bunny hopped over to the backpack and began taking out knives, forks and spoons. He carefully set the picnic tablecloth for three - Mommy Rabbit, Daddy Rabbit and Baby Rabbit.
