Halloween Book Walk
October 2 - October 31
The Boulder Junction Public Library will be offering a Halloween Book Walk beginning Saturday, October 2, 2021 at locations throughout downtown Boulder Junction. The Book Walk will be taken down after Halloween.
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 in business windows or mounted on stands outside the business. The Halloween Book Walk will begin at the library’s Reading Garden. On each 2-page spread their will be directions to the next book pages. The library will also have copies of the Book Walk map – with a link posted here soon!
The book the library has chosen for the Halloween Book Walk is Ghost Afraid of the Dark by Sara Conway. Follow Boo the Ghost as he celebrates his first Halloween with all his Monster friends! He is a shy little ghost who quickly realizes he is afraid of many things. Read as Boo the Ghost discovers how to be brave on Halloween night in Ghost Afraid of the Dark, this adorable, spooky story by Sara Conway, with sweet, quirky illustrations by Alex Willmore.
