StoryWalk Sunday February 2024

February 11 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Our series of StoryWalk® Sunday adventures for kids continues…

The story posted on the StoryWalk® trail at Pine Hill Park changes regularly, and a special story event accompanies each one on the second Sunday of select months.

The book for February was so much fun, we held it over from January: “Winter is Here” by Kevin Henkes.

Kids will join a guided walk along the story trail as they read the book, then make a special craft project to take home. To warm up in the winter cold, families will enjoy a campfire and s’mores!

Winter is Here is a charming book that celebrates the sights, sounds and smells of winter. Snow falls, animals burrow, and children prepare for the wonders winter brings.

Award-winning author Kevin Henkes’s striking text introduces basic concepts of language and the unique beauty of the winter season. Expressive illustrations by Laura Dronzek beautifully capture the joyful wonders of winter.

The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by February 8. 

NEW!! Fill in the registration form, below. Limited to 20 children.

For more information, email to: [email protected] or call 717-762-0373.  

All families are welcome, but activities are geared for preschool and elementary age kids.

Stay tuned for future StoryWalk® Sundays!
