Thielke/Glen Rock Arboretum will put up its
summer StoryWalk® at the Arboretum entrance from the pool parking lot in time
for the July 4th weekend
This time it is a classic fairy tale,The Three Little Pigs, which is
presented with bright cartoon-like illustrations,interactive dialogue and with
changes in font and use of boldface to emphasize the action in the story. Follow the Arboretum trail to discover each
next page of the story. Does your child
know and remember the story? How many
pigs were there? Does he/she know what
happens to each little pig? Who's the
mischievous villain in the story? What
happens to him at the end? And no, he
does not become wolf stew!
The creator of the beautiful
illustrations in this book is Ed Bryan.
Mr. Bryan is a native of England.
According to Ed, he wants " to make things that are beautiful,
charming, funny, have high production values, and attention to
detail". He has certainly achieved
doing that with this version of the classic story.
This book was personally selected for
the children’s enjoyment by members of the Arboretum Planning Team, all
educators, from a selection of books culled by Sally Morgan, co-owner of The
CuriousReader, a unique and special children’s bookstore, located at 229 Rock
Road, in Glen Rock. Located close to the
Thielke Arboretum, it’s the ideal place to pique your child’s continued
interest in reading after the StoryWalk®, and during the summer months.
This StoryWalk® is made possible
through the efforts of the Friends of the Thielke Arboretum, Inc. and through
collaboration with The Curious Reader, at 229 Rock Rd, and by Mail & More
Inc., at 233 Rock Road, a full service mail center providing personalized
packing, copying, shipping, and more, under the direction of Paul Duggan. Sally
and Paul believe in being involved in community activities and particularly
enjoy the positive StoryWalk® comments
shared by their customers.
The Three Little Pigs will be available all
summer from dawn to dusk at the Arboretum.
Enjoy it as many times as you’d
like. Take a break from swimming and the
playground and come read or be read to in a beautiful natural environment! The StoryWalk® is free, but donations to the
Arboretum are always appreciated.
TheStoryWalk® concept was originally created by Anne
Ferguson of Montpelier, VT. StoryWalk® is
currently used in 48 states and four countries.
