StoryWalk Sundays-August 2024
August 11, 2024 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
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 August book is Over in the Ocean in a Coral Reef by Marianne Berkes. Illustrations by Jeanette Canyon.
Learning becomes fun with this book about the animals of the ocean! Unique artwork inspired by clay creations highlights this fun “oceanic counting book” and inspires kids to appreciate the beauty and biology of coral reefs and the world around us. Kids will sing, clap, and count their way among pufferfish that ‘puff,’ gruntfish that ‘grunt,’ and seahorses that ‘flutter,’ and learn to appreciate the animals in the ocean.
The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by August 11.
NEW!! Fill in the registration form, below. Limited to 20 children.
