Winter Book Walk
January 17 - March 19
The Boulder Junction Public Library will be offering a Winter Book Walk 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 “The Little Forest Keepers” by Mary Lundquist. A winter wonderland of a picture book about being kind to friends and strangers alike, perfect for the holiday season. Ash and Pudd take care of everyone in the woods, from their furry and feathered friends to the shivering trees. But then one day, a strange new creature appears in the forest. Could it be a new friend? This story about kindness and generosity is as cozy and sweet as a mug of hot chocolate on a chilly day.
If you have any questions about the Spring Book Walk, please call the library at 715-385-2050.
