Looking for something fun to do with the whole family? Get outside and enjoy the classic story “Owl Moon” by Jane Yolen which is along the West Fire Road trail at Chamberlain Reynolds Memorial Forest. You can even scan the codes on the pages to hear Jane Yolen read this enchanting moonlit adventure.
A StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s story (literally a book taken apart) along a popular walking route in your community, in this case Chamberlain Reynolds. The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the VT Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
We hope you enjoy this classic by Jane Yolen, where you will explore the winter woods at night. Discover what a little patience, quiet, and careful observations can reveal. John Schoenherr’s beautiful illustrations bring this magical winter wonderland to life. As you walk along while reading the story, remember to slow down and listen!
After exploring the story along the trail be sure to visit the Holderness Free Library for a fun craft activity that goes along with the book!
The StoryWalk will be up from Friday, December 15th-Thursday, February 29th.
