You are invited to read our new winter StoryWalk®, Tracks in the Snow, Wong Herbert Yee.
Rain Date: January 15, 2017
Have you ever seen tracks in the snow and
wondered who or what made them? Come join us on our Winter StoryWalk®.
This story takes us on an adventure
with a young girl who follows some mysterious tracks to discover who or what
made them and where they may lead. Do
your children love animals? Within the
story, the reader is introduced to a variety of animals scampering through the
pages. The soft whimsical illustrations
and simple rhythmic text will delight young and old alike. Follow author/illustrator Yee's beautiful
illustrations and accompanying words on display on the trees, page by page,
along one of the arboretum's lovely winding paths. What better place to enjoy winter, nature,
and good children's literature than at the arboretum!
The StoryWalk® will remain up all
winter, so come and revisit it many times.
Who knows what tracks you may find there, especially after it
If you haven't experienced the
StoryWalk® concept before, this is an excellent opportunity to explore and
build reading confidence in children.
StoryWalk® is an innovative approach to encourage people of all ages to
get out in nature and read at the same time.
The StoryWalk® concept was created by Ann Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and
is currently used in 48 states and four countries.
The author, Wong Herbert Yee, is the
recipient of several book awards, including the Theodor Geisel Award. He is the creator of both the Mouse and Mole
and Fireman Small book series. A lover
of the creative process, Yee states that he "can think of nothing better
than writing and illustrating children's books".
The four season StoryWalks® are free
to all and are made possible by the volunteer efforts of the Friends of the
Thielke Arboretum, Inc., and through the generous donations of Sally and Jim
Moran of the Curious Reader Bookstore and Mail &More Inc., both local
businesses located on Rock Road in Glen Rock.
The proprietors always enjoy hearing your StoryWalk® comments, so drop
in for a visit with them!
