StoryWalk Sundays-August 2023
August 13 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
NOTICE: This delightful book was held over from the July StoryWalk event, which was cancelled. JOIN US on August 13!
Our series of StoryWalk® Sunday adventures for kids continues…
The story posted on the StoryWalk® trail at Pine Hill Park changes monthly, and a special story event accompanies each one on the second Sunday of each month.
Kids will join a guided walk along the story trail as they read the book, then make a special craft project to take home.
The July book is Fireflies, Fireflies, Light my Way by Jonathan London, with illustrations by Linda Messier.
A lively rhyming text that features fireflies, beavers, turtles, and other animals celebrates the interconnectedness of the natural world. Follow the fireflies to a magical nighttime place where turtles play, bullfrogs leap, and other animals swim, paddle, and dive.
Inspired by a Native American lullaby, and illustrated with luminous paintings, this celebration of the natural world is an irresistible invitation to youngsters, well-grounded in ecological fact.
The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by July 7.
NEW!! Fill in the registration form, below. Limited to 20 children.
For more information, email to: [email protected] or call 717-762-0373.
All families are welcome, but activities are geared for preschool and elementary age kids.
Stay tuned for future StoryWalk® Sundays!
