If you are new to Lisp in common, then I would argue for the visit of
one of the interactive online tutorials for lisp beginners (sth. like
http://art2.ph-freiburg.de/art/login-e.html, but there must exist more)
and perhaps a look into the book "Land of Lisp".
But picolisp behaves different and has many shortcuts for efficient and
'solve tasks in a few lines of code' coding - so don't stay too long in
the 'common lisp area'.
If you are more experienced and looking for common problems to solve
with picolisp, then the picolisp section of rosettacode.org may be a
fine resource to get some hints.

So, what would the best way to learn picolisp be for a total beginner?
It might seem like you should just bite the bullet and learn regular
Common Lisp first, then start learning picolisp. That is, you should
know all the capabilities of Lisp before you try to learn a derivative
Lisp. Is this true?
