Winter Book Walk
The Boulder Junction Public Library is 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 has 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 library installed a new book which is “Ten Ways to Hear Snow” by Cathy Camper. A snowy day, a trip to Grandma’s, time spent cooking with one another, and space to pause and discover the world around you come together in this perfect book for reading and sharing on a cozy winter day.
One winter morning, Lina wakes up to silence. It’s the sound of snow — the kind that looks soft and glows bright in the winter sun. But as she walks to her grandmother’s house to help make the family recipe for warak enab, she continues to listen.
As Lina walks past snowmen and across icy sidewalks, she discovers ten ways to pay attention to what might have otherwise gone unnoticed. With stunning illustrations by Kenard Pak and thoughtful representation of a modern Arab American family from Cathy Camper, “Ten Ways to Hear Snow” is a layered exploration of mindfulness, empathy, and what we realize when the world gets quiet.
If you have any questions about the Winter Book Walk, please call the library at 715-385-2050.
