StoryWalk® Sundays – February 2022

February 13, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

After being snowed out twice, StoryWalk® Sunday for “The Mitten” has been rescheduled for February!

This is the second in a series of StoryWalk® Sunday adventures for kids.

February’s storybook is “The Mitten” by Jan Brett.

“Based on a Ukrainian folk tradition, the story is a whimsical tale of winter woodland animals climbing into a mitten lost in the snow—each animal larger than the last. Children love the story as the succession of animals leads up to a big brown bear,” said Pam Rowland, The Institute’s education director.

Kids will enjoy a guided walk along the story trail as they read the book, then make a special craft project to take home—and warm up with a campfire and yummy s’mores!

The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by Feb. 10. To register, email to: [email protected] or call 717-762-0373. Limited to 20 children. 

Children in grades K–5 may be dropped off and picked up at 3 p.m. All families are welcome, but activities are geared for preschool and elementary age kids.

The stories posted on the StoryWalk® trail at Pine Hill Park will change monthly, with plans for a special event to accompany each one on the second Sunday of the month. On March 13, the book will be “The Wind Blew” by Pat Hutchins.
