StoryWalk® Sundays—March 2023

March 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

NEW! We now have an online registration form—see below. To sign up for this program, fill out the form below.
Attendance is FREE but registration is required. 

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. They will also enjoy the warmth of a campfire and yummy s’mores!

The featured storybook for March is “Happy Springtime!” by Kate McMullan, with watercolor illustrations by Sujean Rim.

“This bright, bouncy, and brilliantly colorful picture book is an ode to the joys of spring, encouraging everyone who waits out the slow lengthening of days through the end of winter. From earmuffed crossing guards to sweater wearing dogs, from painters of flowers to planters of seeds, Happy Springtime! celebrates the burst of life following the thaw of winter. Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Honoree Kate McMullan’s jubilant love-letter to this exciting time of year is the perfect book to bring in the season of birth and renewal.

The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by March 9.  NEW!! Fill in the registration form, below. Limited to 20 children.

Pine Hill’s StoryWalk® trail, an Institute project, was funded in part by Summit Endowment – (WellSpan Health), Marge Kiersz and Rouzerville Business Association, with in-kind support from Washington Township, Hopewell Manufacturing, Waynesboro Area School District “Be the Village,” and Alexander Hamilton Memorial Free Library.

Additional support is from The Institute’s Today’s Horizon Fund contributors: The Nora Roberts Foundation; Marge Kiersz; Alma W. Oyer; and the Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin. Facility support courtesy of Washington Township.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
