StoryWalk at the Park

Enjoy the blossoms of spring by visiting our newest StoryWalk® at the North Farms Park, located at 149 Branford Road, North Branford! Our StoryWalk® connects families and young readers with nature, outdoor exploration and reading. Pages from Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms by Julia Rawlinson; illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke have been transformed into signs and displayed along the family-friendly hiking trail at North Farms Park. Follow the path of pages and read the story of Fletcher as he enjoys the sunny weather and the warmth of spring. When he stumbles across snowy flakes gently floating to the ground, he spreads the news of winter’s return to all his friends. But spring is full of wonderful surprises for Fletcher and his friends.   How it works:

Look for a Take-and-Make bag at either the Atwater or Edward Smith Library. It includes the supplies needed to make your own spring tissue paper wreath.

After your walk and reading our featured story, stop by either Library to pick up a treat! Be sure to enter your name in a raffle to win a copy of Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms.

This StoryWalk® is a collaboration between North Branford Parks and Recreation and North Branford Public Libraries. We hope this interactive, family-friendly activity encourages a lifelong love of reading and the great outdoors. 

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
