Spring Book Walk
March 20 @ 12:00 am - April 7 @ 12:00 am
The Boulder Junction Public Library will be offering a Spring Book Walk beginning Sunday, March 20, 2022 at Boulder Junction Winter Park, 10135-10217 Old K Rd, Boulder Junction.
A Book Walk is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s story (literally a book taken apart) along a popular walking route in a community. Conceived as a way to inspire parents, teachers, and caregivers to take young children out of doors for physical activity and to learn, a Book Walk helps build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity for both adults and children.
The library will have laminated 2-page spreads of the book mounted on stands along Winter Park’s 1-mile trail loop. To get to Winter Park from downtown Boulder Junction, turn right on Old Hwy K (at Coontail Corner) and go about .25 miles. Winter Park will be on the right.
The book the library has chosen for the Spring Book Walk is “Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring” by Kenard Pak. In a simple, cheerful conversation with nature, a young boy observes how the season changes from winter to spring. As days stretch longer, animals creep out from their warm dens, and green begins to grow again, everyone knows―spring is on its way! Join a boy and his dog as they explore nature and take a stroll through the countryside, greeting all the signs of the coming season. In a series of conversations with everything from the melting brook to chirping birds, they say goodbye to winter and welcome the lushness of spring
