StoryWalk® Sundays—May 2023

May 14 @ 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.

In May we celebrate National Space Day—and the featured storybook is “The Penguinaut,” by Marcie Colleen, with illustrations by Emma Yarlett.

“The story of a small penguin with a big dream that’s out of this world! Orville lives at the zoo, surrounded by animal pals who go on exciting adventures. A hang gliding rhino! A deep-sea diving giraffe! Orville struggles to keep up, until one day he concocts an adventure all his own: build a spaceship and fly to the moon all by himself. Can one tiny penguin get there alone?

Penguinaut is perfect for every child who’s said, I can do it myself!” and comes to find that the rewards are much richer when shared with friends. Marcie Colleen’s playful text and Emma Yarlett’s charming, whimsical illustrations are sure to delight both children and their parents.”

The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by May 11.

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.
